Pebble Beach Results 2012: Phil Mickelson Discusses His Final Round [VIDEO]

Playing in the second to last group with Tiger Woods used to be a knee knocking experience for even the most steady of pro golfer, even the steel-nerved Phil Mickelson. But with Tiger by his side the whole way, Phil electrified the field at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am Sunday, firing a final round 64 to vault himself atop the leaderboard and earn his first PGA Tour victory of the season, and 40th of his career.

Here Phil discusses his final round, some of the important shots along the way, and just how important winning this tournament is to him and his family.

Phil discussed being in an 'agressive' state of mind, Phil's proverbial M.O. since joining the PGA Tour, but it's also that aggressiveness that will keep him towards the top of the leaderboard down the stretch. Now if Tiger can only find some of that aggressiveness on Sunday....

Pebble Beach Results 2012: Resurgent Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson Rivalry Great For PGA Tour

Whenever Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods get paired together at a golf tournament, there is always a bit of an extra buzz amongst the group. The crowd will obviously be larger than normal, but inside the ropes it's a silent battle between one man's golf game against the other, and Phil's certainly triumphed over Tiger's on Sunday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

But to see them both in contention with one another as well as the rest of the field must be a pleasant treat for the PGA Tour and it's fans.

Phil's schedule is a bit more packed then Tiger's in the recent future, who is scheduled to play next week at Riviera C.C. for the Northern Trust Open and probably another three tournaments before the Masters in early April. The next time we could see Tiger is likely the Accenture Match Play down in Arizona in two weeks (Feb. 22-26), or the World Golf Championship at Doral (March 08-11). If not, it will be the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay HIll (March 22-25), meaning it might be a few weeks before we get another taste of this rivalry.

Tiger has had chances in his last two starts as he was near the leader in both final rounds thanks to above average play the first three rounds, but 'Sunday Tiger' has yet to appear, though must be dying to get out of the bag. Especially with Phil currently outshining him.

Golf fans will be in for a treat this season as the Tiger vs. Phil rivalry heat's up heading into the summer.

Pebble Beach 2012: Charlie Wi Finishes Second Behind Phil Mickelson

Charlie Wi had an incredible round of golf. Unfortunately it was on Thursday, not on Sunday.

Wi started the tournament with an amazing 61 which put him at the top of the leaderboard for much of the week. He moved up the next two days to stay on top of everyone else and looked like he had a decent shot at pulling out the victory on Sunday.

But then Wi got off on the wrong foot on his final round when he double-bogeyed the first hole. Two more bogeys on five and six totally evaporated his lead, and Phil Mickelson took advantage and took over. Although Wi recovered with five birdies and only one bogey down the stretch, it wasn't enough to overcome Mickelson's incredible performance, as he couldn't overcome his earlier errors.

The Cal grad came very close to notching his first career victory on the PGA Tour, but he'll have to wait for another opportunity.

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: Phil Mickelson Wins, Trumps Tiger Woods, Charlie Wi

Phil Mickelson relishes his chances to play alongside former No. 1 in the World Tiger Woods, and took full advantage this Sunday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, firing a final round 8-under 64 to finish four shots ahead of the field for his first victory of 2012, and his fourth career victory at Pebble Beach.

Phil was on fire on the front nine, going out in 31 with birdies on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th, and an eagle on the par 5 6th. A pair of birdies on the 13th and 14th kept his buffer from the rest of the field, then capped it off with a beautiful wedge tucked close to the pin for a final birdie on 18.

It was the best we’ve seen Phil play in a while, easing his way into the victory as those around him mostly tumbled.

The most notable tumbler of the day is of course Tiger Woods, who finished his front nine with three straight bogies, and never seemed to get into a groove all day from anywhere on the course, especially on the greens, missing a number of short putts today. He had a nice birdie on the par-3 12th, but two more bogies on 14th and 15th killed any chance he had, finishing the week 8-under.

First round leader and Cal Alum Charlie Wi started with a unfortunate three-putt on the first, but hung tough to finish 15-under, while Stockton native Ricky Barnes finished solo third at 13-under.

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Final Round Leaderboard: Phil Mickelson Vaults Ahead, Tiger Woods Sputtering Behind

Heading into the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am all eyes were on whether or not Charlie Wi could hang on for his first PGA Tour victory. But midway through Sunday's round the storyline has turned towards Phil Mickelson, who has used a superb front nine to shoot himself atop the leaderboard, while his playing partner Tiger Woods has been struggling to make birdies so far in the round.

Phil used birdies on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th hole and an impressive eagle on the par 5 sixth to move to 14-under for the week and a two shot lead over Ken Duke and first round leader Charlie Wi, who is three over on his round for the day.

As for Tiger, he hasn't been leaving himself many decent chances for birdies with his iron play, but hasn't taken advantage of some shorter putts as well, with bogies on the 7th, 8th, and 9th to move back to 9-under for the week.

Kevin Streelman is also 5-under so far on his round today, joining Mickelson for low round of the day thus far, while Stockton native Ricky Barnes in 11-under through his frist nine of play.

On the amateur side of things, Padraig Harrington and J.P. McManus have been caught by Brian Harman and Gregg Ontiveros at 34-under, battling for the amateur title.

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: Tee Times, TV Schedule & Pairings For Sunday's Final Round

The final round is upon us at the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, and former No. 1 in the world Tiger Woods is looking for his first official PGA Tour victory in over two years. He'll also have an old friend in his pairing Sunday as well, teeing it up with Phil Mickelson for the final round of this year's Pro-Am.

But Charlie Wi and Ken Duke, each looking for their first ever PGA Tour win, stand in Tiger's way as he lurks four shots back of Wi heading into the final round, likely in need of some Sunday heroics to claim the title. And with names like Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson not far behind, almost anything can happen down the stretch this year at Pebble.

As for the amateur field this Sunday, it was sliced in half by the cut on Saturday, leaving only the contenders in play for the final round. Unfortunately that means the likes of Bill Murray, Jim Harbaugh, Matt Cain, and many others won't be taking to the course this afternoon, as Padraig Harrington and partner J.P. McManus hold a three shot lead heading into Sunday over Brian Harman and his partner Gregg Ontiveros.

Tiger and his partner Tony Romo will tee off with Phil Mickelson and partner Skip Mcgee at 9:29 a.m. PT on the first tee at Pebble, followed by the final group of Charlie Wi, Ken Duke and partners at 9:40.

Stockton native Ricky Barnes and playing partner Bill Belichick tee of at 8:56 off No. 1, while Sacramento native Nick Watney starts off No. 1 as well at 8:12.

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: Third Round Recap [VIDEO]

From the gloomy chill of the early morning to the bright sunset over the Pacific Ocean this evening, the third round at the 2012 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am provided a number of exciting shots, intriguing storylines, and good old fashioned entertainment from the celebrities playing in the Pro-Am, including Bill Murray and his outrageous outfit, and George Lopez and Andy Garcia having themselves a whole lot of fun with the crowds at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

But that wasn't all, Stanford Almuni Jospeh Bramlett had a double-eagle (aka albatross) at the par-5 second at Sphyglass Hill, while Steven Bowditch found the cup from the fairway for an eagle on the par 4 15th hole at Pebble. See Bowditch's eagle and highlights from Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and tournament leader Charlie Wi in the video below:

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Third Round Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Surges To -11, Four Shots Back Heading Into Sunday

Tiger Woods hasn't had an official PGA Tour victory in well over two years, but has put himself into position to make a Sunday charge after a remarkable 5-under round of 67 on Saturday, setting up a battle between himself and Charlie Wi, who finished the day four shots better at 15-under par.

Tiger began his round of the back nine of Pebble, firing a 4-under 32 that consisted of birdies on three consecutive birdies on 13, 14, and 15, drained a solid 15 foot putt for birdie 17, then had an easy chip and a tap in for birdie on the par 5 18th. He kept it up with another birdie on the par 5 2nd, but rode the par train from there on in to finish his day with a 5-under 67, 11-under for the week.

Tiger hasn't come from behind for many wins in his career, but one of them came right here at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am back in 2000, making a seven shot swing over the last seven holes to eclipse Matt Gogel for the title that year.

Cal Alumni Charlie Wi has been leading the tournament since Thursday, playing his third round over at Spyglass Hill on Saturday. Wi was incredibly steady all day long, firing two birdies on 4, 12, and 17 along with 15 pars the rest of the way to finish with a 3-under round of 69, just enough to keep his four shot cushion over Tiger and three shot cushion over Irishman Padraig Harrington, currently at -12 through 12 at Spyglass Hill, and Ken Duke, who is 5-under for the day through 16 holes at Monterey Peninsula.

Harrington and business man J.P. McManus also hold a six shot lead in the amateur portion of the event as well.

Phil Mickelson had some opportunities, but struggled a bit late, finishing 2-under for the day and 9-under for the week, as is Stockton native Ricky Barnes, long baller Dustin Johnson and South Korean Kevin Na.

A fun side note: Joespeh Bramlett, a Stanford Alum playing on a sponsor's exemption this week, make an albatross (or double-eagle) on the par-5 11th at Spyglass Hill today, using a six iron from 205 yards out, his first career albatross. Bramlett is currently 9-under par, ensuring himself a nice paycheck come Sunday already.

It's going to be an epic final round come Sunday, make sure to tune in to catch all the action!

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Leaderboard: Tiger Woods Making Saturday Charge, Moves to -10 After Front Nine

It's moving day at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and a pair of familiar faces are climbing their way up the leaderboard this Saturday in Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Tiger started off the back nine at Pebble Beach this morning, and quickly made an unfortunate bogey on the 12th, his third hole, but followed it up with solid birdie putts on 13, 14, 15, 17 and 18 to move to 4-under for the day and 10-under for the tournament. Fellow fan favorite Phil Mickelson had a nice front nine as well, moving to 8-under for the week.

As for tournament leader Charlie Wi, he maintains his three shot lead for now at 13-under, though 13 players are within 5 shots of him, so he'll have to keep making some birdies to to stay ahead with these soft and soggy conditions.

Stockton native Ricky Barnes has made a great charge today as well, starting 3-under for his first five holes, while Irishman Padraig Harrington joins Woods at 10-under along with Kevin Na, Danny Lee and Joespeh Bramlett.

Tiger Woods started his second round hot at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, but cooled down along with the weather down the stretch as the rains came in later in the day. But after two rounds it's Charlie Wi leading the way, who backed up his brilliant opening round with a 3-under 69, finishing atop the leaderboard at 12-under after the second round on Friday.

His ball striking was solid most of the day, finishing about the field average in driving distance, accuracy, and greens in regulation. But it was the flat stick that troubled him, hitting 31 putts on round today.

Dustin Johnson is the closest to Wi after the second round, finishing with a 1-under 71 at Spyglass Hill to move to 10-under for the tournament, just one shot off the lead.

On the second day of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Tiger Woods is moving up the leaderboard after his front nine, but still trails Charlie Wi who is currently pacing the field at 11-under midway through Friday's action.

Tiger's playing Monterey Peninsula Country Club this afternoon, his first competitive round here in his career, but has already managed to easily birdie the first, two-putted for birdie on the par-5 6th, then backed it up with another birdie on the 7th. He found the fairway bunker on the 4th which led to his lone bogey thus far Friday, leaving him at 6-under for the tournament and two-under par for the day. a full five shots behind leader Charlie Wi.

Wi won himself a California State Amateur title back in 1990 when he was just 18 years old at Pebble Beach, so he could be channeling some if that this week.

Brian Gay has the hottest round of the day so far, five under through 12 at Monterey Peninsula, while Kevin Na and Dustin Johnson sit only one shot behind Wi at 10-under. As for the amateur leaderboard, Irishman Padraig Harrington and businessman JP McManus currently lead the way at 19-under par collectively, while Tony Romo and Tiger Woods sit at 11-under.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is enjoying his first taste of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, playing alongside PGA Tour Pro Ryan Moore and sitting at 3-under after the first round of the tournament.

But, we all know Harbaugh isn't going to divulge much about his team...

Tiger Woods Finishes -4 In AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2012 First Round

Tiger Woods made his season debut on the 2012 PGA Tour at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and is tied for 15th at minus-four after the first round.

Woods, who finished in a tie for third in Abu Dhabi at the end of January, had an up-and-down round. He birdied his first two holes starting from the 10th tee, but bogeyed the 13th. Woods had another bogey at the fourth but mixed in four more birdies to end the round below par.

"I drove it great all day today. I felt like I drove it on a string," Woods said. "Unfortunately, going into the greens I was not very good at all. I had some wedges that I hit some awful golf shots."

Woods called his round "frustrating," but added that Spyglass Hill is the hardest of the three courses.

"Hopefully I can get it going the next couple days," Woods said.

Dustin Johnson, Danny Lee and Charlie Wi shot rounds of nine-under par Thursday to take the lead after Day One.

Tiger Woods At -3 Midway In AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2012 First Round

Tiger Woods is off to a decent start with Tony Romo as his partner at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2012. Woods started on the back nine for this tournament by birdieing the first two holes on the 10th and 11 holes, got a par on the 12th, then bogeyed the 13th hole par-5 to fall back to -1. Woods parred the 14th, 15th and the 16th holes before getting a birdie back on the 17th to get up to -2. Woods then came back on the first hole and made another birdie to get up to -3. It's a pretty good start for Woods, who trails the current leaders of the first round by five strokes.

2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: Tiger Woods Looks To Win

Tiger Woods has been waiting a long time to win his next tournament as a pro. His legacy is in danger of stagnating if he doesn't get back track, and he needs marquee wins in a hurry and victories in PGA Tour tournaments. Tomorrow is his next chance to finally win a tourney. Woods hasn't won anything on the Tour since 2009, and he hasn't won this tournament since 2000, finishing with a -15.

Woods is pairing up with another guy who's trying to learn how to win big games in Tony Romo. It's interesting to see two of the most famous athletes facing similar career arcs, as both are running out of chances to get that elusive victory. Perhaps the two can learn from each other tomorrow instead of believing that it's too much of a distraction.

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: Chris Berman, Lucas Black Win 3M Celebrity Challenge

Wednesday at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is the 3M Celebrity Challenge, pitting twosomes of celebs against one another for an $80,000 grand prize for charity. And after some grueling competition, it came down to a one hole chip-off to decide the ultimate winner, with actor Lucas Black chipping in on the 18th hole to secure the victory for himself and his teammate Chris Berman.

Here are some photos via the tournament's twitter page of some of the action that took place out there today:

Here's a look at Bill Murray teeing it up on the 18th. Gotta love the shorts and Caddyshack hat. "It's a Cinderella story..."

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2012: George Lopez Explains His Love For Pebble Beach [VIDEO]

The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has a long standing tradition of comedians taking part in the event, including such greats as Bob Hope and Jack Lemmon.

Nowadays there are a few new staple funny men at the annual tournament, including last year's Pro-Am winner Bill Murray, Ray Ramano, and the always endearing George Lopez.

George was kind enough to take some time during Wednesday's 3M Celebrity Challenge to speak with Comcast SportsNet Bay Area's own Jim Kozimor to discuess his love for this event and the surrounding area, as well as a bit about his upbringing and introduction to the game of golf.

Nothing is ever straight-forward with George though, always putting his funny spin on everything:

"Scotland was the home of golf, but this is the vacation home of golf."

Lopez didn't take home the cake during the Celebrity Challenge today, but still has a shot at the title come Sunday.

2012 AT&T Pebble Beach Celebrity Pro-Am: Bill Murray, Jim Harbaugh, Other Celebrities Scheduled To Play

The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Tournament is always one of the more memorable golf events of the year. Not only does it unofficially kick off the new season, but it also features some well-known celebrities in addition to the many world renowned golfers who come to the Bay Area to complete in the annual tournament. And while some celebs are just out to have a good time, there are also some who take their golf game very seriously and will look to win this year.

Comedian and actor Bill Murray won the event in 2011 and will look to protect his title once again this time around. He is always a fan favorite and always supplies a good round of laughs for those in attendance. We will also have recently-named AP NFL Coach of the Year, Jim Harbaugh, in attendance. Check it out:

The nickname Jim 'Parbrough' has already made its way around the Internet and I'm sure we'll hear plenty about it in the coming days. We apologize in advance.

Other celebrities expected to be in attendance are actors Ray Romano, Don Cheadle and George Lopez, music star Kenny G, football players Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo, coaches Bob Stoops and Bill Belichick, and many others found here.

49ers Vs. Giants Charity Shootout: Current & Former NFL, MLB Stars Compete At Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Bay Area legends and current high-profile NFL/MLB coaches and players alike took part in the charity shootout Tuesday at the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am between the 49ers and Giants, with Jim Harbaugh, Alex Smith, Jerry Rice, Harris Barton and Brent Jones taking on Matt Cain, Will Clark, Dave Flemming, Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow on the links.

Conflicting reports from the media pool there on exactly how it was done (birdie or bogie??), but 49er legend Dwight Clark sealed the deal for the Niners.

The 49ers official Twitter feed had some great photos of the competition, including a nice chip by QB Alex Smith on 18 here:

Tiger Woods At Pebble Beach: Woods Speaks

Tiger Woods is back and all that means is that all questions will be directed in his direction from this point forward. Just joking (not really).

With Woods preparing to play in his first PGA Tour event of the year at Pebble Beach, he answered a few questions at a press conference today, providing some insight into where he feels he stands as of now. Seems to be in a good mood. Always a good sign when you have to do as much walking as he's about to (golf joke, you can laugh, it's ok).

This was taken from the San Jose Mercury News.

Question: You haven't had a victory in a while, do you feel pressure about that?

"Not really, I feel very at peace with where I'm at. I had to make some changes and that took time and I'm starting to see the results of that now, which is great.

My last four events I've really played well. I'm just holding on that. Everything's headed in the right direction."

Question: Any signs you're not 22 any more?

"Yeah, there's no doubt. It is what it is.

I don't recover quite as well. I know that I'm sore quite often, just about every day when I'm playing with my kids. They're not very tall yet, and bending down there and building things, coloring, all those different things, that's pretty low to the ground...

And I do get sore. I don't remember ever being like that.

But there's also ways of training. I understand training way better now than I did then. Wearing myself out for no reason at all. Just have to train smarter, practice smarter. Just more knowledge, really."

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2012: Overview Of Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, Monterey Penisula C.C.

For those of you who aren't aware, every year the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am is played on three separate courses; Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the newly added Monterey Peninsula Country Club.

Here's a quick look at the three tracks being played at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am this year:

Tournament Stimpmeter

10 ft

Sand bunkers

111

Water hazards

Ocean on nine holes

Easiest Hole:

The par-4 466-yard 9th This is the toughest hole on the golf course. Because the fairway slopes severely toward the ocean, the approach must be hit from a hanging lie. What usually happens is that the player leaks it to the right a little or overcompensates and ends up in the left rough or the greenside bunker. The approach to No. 8 may be the most critical on the course, but the approach to the ninth is just as difficult and if you've missed the eighth, the ninth is not place to pick up lost strokes.
2011: 0 eagles, 13 birdies, 134 pars, 65 bogeys, 12 double bogeys, 2 others.

Hardest Hole:

The par-5 513-yard 6th This hole demands the driver. That's because a ball not hit far enough probably will prevent the player from reaching the second landing area, past the swath of rough, on the second shot. That will mean a lay-up and a blind third shot to a small green with a long iron. That's not something to look forward to, so expect to see the field cranking driver here.
2011: 9 eagles, 110 birdies, 88 pars, 17 bogeys, 2 double bogeys and 0 others.

4

Easiest Hole:

The par-4 399-yard 8th Signal Hill is, perhaps, the longest hole under 400 yards in the world. The second shot is even more uphill than the tee shot. The green is elevated and crowned with the hole's only bunker protecting its right side. This is Spyglass Hill's No. 1 handicap hole.
2011: 0 eagles, 9 birdies, 85 pars, 53 bogeys, 7 double bogeys, 1 other.

Hardest Hole:

The par-5 528-yard 11th A dogleg-right par-5 is characterized by a necklace of bunkers protecting the right side of the green. While beautiful to look at from a distance, these bunkers are very costly to play from.
2010: 6 eagles, 77 birdies, 61 pars, 9 bogeys, 3 double bogeys and 0 others.

Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2012: Tiger Woods Ready To Begin 2012 With a Bang

After losing the 54-hole lead at the HSBC Championship in Abu Dhabi two weeks ago, current No. 17 in the world Tiger Woods is happy to be playing in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am once again,looking to start his 2012 PGA Tour season with a bang:

"It's always been one of my favorite spots," said Woods, who this week will be playing in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for the first time since 2002 as he makes his first appearance of the season on the PGA Tour. "It might be the prettiest place on Earth."

The long absence from Pebble Beach in a competitive environment shouldn't be a problem for Woods, who came from seven strokes back on Sunday in 2000 to secure the victory at the National Pro-Am and is the site of his 2000 U.S. Open performance in which he won by a record 15 strokes.

Nevertheless, the replacement of Poppy Hills with Monterey Peninsula back in 2010 as part of the three-course circuit is something that will be new for Tiger, joining the likes of Spyglass Hill as well:

"I've never played Monterey Peninsula and am looking forward to it," said Woods, "From all I've heard, it's a wonderful course and the greens are fast."

Another new faction of this event is that Tiger will be pairing up with his good buddy and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo for the Pro-Am portion of the tournament, which a great pairing for both Woods and the tournament, who is already up 20% in ticket sales with Tiger in the field.

From ESPN's golf guru Bob Harig on the pairing of Romo and Woods:

"It makes perfect sense, especially for Tiger," said Bob Harig of espn.com. "Romo, the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback, is an avid golfer, a low single-digit handicap player who has even made it through local qualifying for the U.S. Open. That's the type of player Tiger prefers in pro-ams."

This could be another big week in terms of Tiger's fall from grace, who's finally got his game back into competitive shape. A win here could bolster his confidence, and world ranking, immensely, while putting the rest of the Tour on watch that Mr. Woods is back in the building.

"AT&T is a great partner to my Foundation, and I'm looking forward to playing in this event. I haven't been to this tournament lately, but I have a lot of good memories at Pebble. It will be fun going back."

2012 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: Will Tiger Woods Team Up With Tony Romo?

As the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am looks to get all of it's celebrities lined up for the upcoming event, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo may have himself quite the playing partner for this year's tourney, none other than Tiger Woods.

The Golf Channel's Jason Sobel tweeted earlier this month that Romo may be out to snag a 'high profile' playing partner, and it doesn't get much higher than Tiger Woods:

And as USA Today points out, Romo and Woods played together in Washington D.C. a few years back during the pro-am of the AT&T National at Congressional Country Club, and haven't really had a chance to play together since. Is it time for a reunion?

Personally, I'd like to see Tiger play with one of the staples of the tourney, such as Kenny G, just to see the awkwardness at play. But a Romo/Tiger team would be rather fun to watch as well.

2012 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am: For Tiger Woods, The Time Is Now To Start Winning Again

With Tiger Woods’ return to the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February, it will mark the first time he’s played the event since 2002, and a likely new outlook on the season and career for the 36 year old former No. 1 in the world. Though still young, Tiger is running out of majors if he wants to catch Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18, and the time is now for Tiger’s renaissance.

Many felt that Tiger would choose the Farmer’s Insurance Open at Torrey Pines to start out his season, one of the few courses he has had more succes at than Pebble, but Tiger has already committed to the HSBC Champions in Abu Dhabi, the first official tournament Tiger will play in in 2012.

It isn’t shocking to see him start his season overseas, where his marketability hasn’t bottomed out as much as in the States. The field will also be much stronger than at Farmer’s, not to mention the more money to be made, even through a potential new sponsor (you never know who’ll sponsor Tiger next).

With 14 majors under his belt, Woods still has four more to go to catch the Golden Bear, and is running out of time to do so. Tiger has adjusted to his new swing, is feeling healthy again, and has some momentum after his victory at the Chevron Challenge in December. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him play in many events before the Masters, more so than he has in years at least. And I wouldn’t be surprised to see him win a few either.

It may be the year of the Dragon according to Chinese Astrology, but on the PGA Tour, 2012 may once more be the year of the Tiger.
