The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is a 72-hole PGA TOUR golf championship that started in the 1930s. Top PGA professionals team up with Hollywood celebrities, athletes and world-renowned musicians.
The Celebrity Challenge is a part of the tournament, and a fan favorite. Teams play only five holes, each of which as a specific purse. Players who win each hole receive the purse, and then give whatever they win to charity. This year’s winners were Jeffrey Donovan and Andy Garcia, who each gave 11,000 to the charities of their choice. Donovan chose to give to the Amesbury Educational Foundation, while Andy Garcia gave to First Tee of Monterey County. The total amount given to charity was $29,000.
This year the tournament was held from February 8-14. Players rotated to different golf courses, and the championship round took place at Pebble Beach.
Other celebrities who competed include Josh Duhamel, George Lopez, Kenny G, Tony Romo, Kelly Slater and Don Cheadle. Clint Eastwood chairs the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, which organizes the tournament.
