The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am can be a tough place for a player to make his debut because of three courses that are different except for the views along the California coast. Justin Rose managed to play Pebble Beach and Monterey Peninsula ahead of the opening round.
Justin Rose, a U.S. Open champion and the No. 7 player in the world, shot a 6-under 66 his first time playing Spyglass Hill and spent a gorgeous day listening to the fans call out his name. Except they weren't calling for him, and he knew it.
