McIlroy back at Pebble Beach for new-look AT&T Pro-Am

The sun made a few appearances Thursday as the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am teed off without a hitch following Wednesday night’s big storm.

A timely start and delay-free round seemed unlikely judging from Wednesday, when high winds and general bad weather caused tournament organizers to close the course to spectators out of an abundance of caution.

But Thursday dawned with the sun breaking through broken clouds and the wind having died down the night before. Golfers and fans did put up with occasional cloud bursts but nothing so serious as to delay play.

The atmosphere at Pebble Beach Golf Links during the first tournament round Thursday was subdued compared to last year’s event. Gone are the days of fans ducking from celebrities’ wild swings and entertaining sideline interactions with Hollywood’s A-listers (Molly Gibbs – Monterey Herald).
