PEBBLE BEACH — Most of the world’s top amateur players migrated to this oasis of golf the past week. They largely sailed below the radar, amid baseball playoff races and the imminent start of football season. But the U.S. Amateur, beyond determining the winner of the game’s most prestigious event for non-professionals, offers another layer of intrigue — as a reminder the U.S. Open returns to Northern California in less than 10 months. Pebble Beach will host America’s national championship next year, for the sixth time. So even if the golfers roaming Pebble’s fairways the past several days do not resonate with casual fans, that will change in June with the arrival of Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson and their big-name peers. “From the size of the event to the crowd and logistics, even the golf course, there’s a pretty big difference between the Amateur and the Open,” said Bill Perocchi, chief executive officer of Pebble Beach Company. … [Read more...] about Amid U.S. Amateur, Pebble Beach prepares for the Open

PEBBLE BEACH — One of the coolest things about this week’s U.S. Amateur is the freedom to walk around Pebble Beach, unencumbered by the customary crowds. This is not the AT&T Pro-Am, in other words. And it’s definitely not the U.S. Open, where galleries jam against the ropes on virtually every hole. Few people typically attend the Amateur, beyond family and friends of the 312 players competing to win the nation’s oldest championship. And the field will be trimmed to 64 by Wednesday morning, as match play begins. That means plenty of open space to wander the pictureseque seaside links. Put it this way: Jack Nicklaus, the greatest player ever, walked around Pebble on Tuesday (unbothered) with his wife, Barbara, watching their son Gary play the second round. USGA officials installed ropes around the greens, but fans are free to walk alongside the fairways and get close-up views of the competition and scenery. More will be on the line in June, when the Open … [Read more...] about U.S. Amateur offers rare chance to stroll around Pebble Beach
