Ollie says 48 fewer golfers is a positive step?
The PGA Tour and the Monterey Peninsula Foundation announced that the tour’s Policy Board today approved the reduction of the professional field for the 2010 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from 180 to 156 players. The amateur field consequently will be reduced by the same number.
“This is a positive step in our continual quest to improve the event,” states Ollie Nutt, president and CEO of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation. “With the return of Monterey Peninsula Country Club to the rotation and the celebration of AT&T’s 25th year as title sponsor, this will further strengthen the experience for contestants and spectators alike.”
