'13 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Final Round Comment Thread

Can Brandt-Snedeker--the hottest golfer on the PGA Tour--get the win?

Will James Hahn break out in another dance?

Will a hologram of Phil Harris visit the booth on 18? Actually, a cardboard cut-out of Mr. Harris would still have more to say than Clint Eastwood did during his exhilarating Saturday visit.

These are more questions answered starting at 10 a.m. to 11:30 on Golf Channel, some time after 12 p.m. PT on CBS following the conclusion of Indiana-Ohio State. Hopefully it doesn't last as long as Notre Dame-Louisville yesterday.

I've got Sneds in my fantasy pool, but go, Hahn, go!
I'd forgotten he's this guy:

I watched the entire ND-Louisville game and it was pretty good from the 2nd half on!

Go Irish!

On the other hand, I didn't watch once ounce of coverage of Pebble Beach, including missing Clint's corpse up there entertaining the snow bound folk.

Go Clint!

Is it just me, or does Patrick Cantlay seem like a major league tool? His demeanor at the US Amateur last summer, and even watching him yesterday makes me really dislike the guy...seem really cocky, sullen and arrogant...never smiles.

I've like Sneds since watching him blister Torrey a few years ago. Seems like a really good guy.
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterManku
He was a tool when he lost the Western Amateur final at North Shore as well.

golf does funny things to people :o)

"does Patrick Cantlay seem like a major league tool?"

Oh, you'll enjoy the List kid too.
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterStreaky Putter
List is more of a red ass than a tool.
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterJeremy
Yes agree on Cantlay. When he shot 60 up here in CT he acted like he should've done better. As if. Just seems like a brat.

Why does CBS allow Clint in the booth? He's 82 and can barely talk. Of course Nantz kisses his butt like everyone else. Hopefully this is his last year.

How many times do we have to endure those ATT tape a cheetah to my grandma's back commercials?

Go Brandt!
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterEasy8
@Easy8... Since Nantz lives on the Pebble Beach property I think he is contractually obligated to kiss Clints rear.

Did the final group really tee off at 9:35 and finish at 3:20?
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterPABoy
In five starts this year, Brandt Snedecker has amassed more OWGR ranking points than the 50th ranked player has amassed in the past two years.
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterStreaky Putter
PABoy,
They did indeed...flew home to get in at 3:20!
02.10.2013 | Registered CommenterGeoff
Once a tool, always a tool. Think back to the folks you still know from grade school. Has anyone fundamentally changed?
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterAG
Where do the celebs tee off from? Forward tees?
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterStreaky Putter
There was a moment -- I am certain others saw it -- when Eastwood took off his headset. And Jim Nantz looked like he was going to forcibly put it back on Eastwood, but he saw in the monitor that they were in the live shot. Nantz also looked like he was going to be sick. Anybody suppose that Eastwood didn't want to listen to whatever the directors were saying in the headsets?

It was the most Phil Harris moment of the last 20 Clambakes.

Easy8 - So shoveling the snow off my roof in CT and missing all but Sneds on the last four holes was the better deal?
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterD. maculata
@D. maculata - I'm buried here in CT too and didn't pull the roof rake out. Worried about this rain tomorrow though it's going to get messy. You didn't miss much the end of the tourney was uneventful other than seeing Sned's wife and kids (I'm always a fan of those). And right at 6pm the CBS affiliate here switched to a split screen of Govern Malloy's press conference about the blizzard, so there was no golf audio for Sned's 17th and most of 18th. Which might have been good so we didn't have to listen to Clint babble anymore than necessary.
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterEasy8
I've enjoyed watching today, and I just dismiss Nantz: he's just getting warmed up for AGNC. As to yesterday-with the sound off it was ok--FF thru most of the BS and ''swing analysis- sorry Peter, but man, that was a LOT of finding something good to say about EVERY swing- and Romano looked sad, after all Hank did for him. Practice practice practice.

My oldest goes to UH; I should ask if they have turned Nantz and Couples dorm room into a shrine :)

I already deleted the days golf when I read on here about Clint hound dogging it-darn! Hearing ole Magnum drool over some-body would have made my day. I bet he was chuckling all evening yelling at kids on his lawn.

Did anyone else notice Sir Nick giving CondiR the cold shoulder?
02.10.2013 | Unregistered Commenterdigsouth
Fear the rain, Easy8. It's too late to shovel now but if your gutters are clear, you have a shot. We had 3-5 ft drifting up top that needed attention. I love listening to Dannel speak about as much as Nantz so it was a draw. I'm more impressed with the person that provides the sign language. She's got the "um" and "ah" parts down pat.

PABoy says a 6-hour loop? The fairways must have been glistening with snail slime.
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterD. maculata
Go, Sneds! This is a very good development. I missed the whole thing, for the first time in, well, since I can remember. And didn't miss it at all. Spent the afternoon walking behind "Four Stooges in Carts with Rangefinders" and still got around in about 3:30. Finished at about 6:10 EST and checked the score. Sneds was through 16 I think...He NEEDS that vacation on Maui! Really, how can you play that freakin' slow when you never have to look for a ball? Sheesh!
02.10.2013 | Unregistered CommenterKLG
Patrick Cantlay is definitely not a tool. Have known him in the past. Always polite and respectful to others. He is just a little on the quiet side which sometimes can be misinterpreted as being cocky or arrogant. Remember, he is just starting out and would have likely stayed at UCLA if the PGA rules hadn't changed. I wish him much success.
