Well, we do apologize (just a little). One, because there were no phones thrown off balconies during our tenure at the Pro Am and no run-ins with the local police. We know, everyone has Pro Am fatigue but we promise it’s not just golf swings, victory dances, and handicaps in this episode. So without further ado, we present to you the unapologetic spirit and whimsy that for just one week in this part of the whole world, truly belonged to the AT&T Pro Am at Pebble Beach.

Oh, those Bright Ideas

As a first-time attendee at the Pro-Am and a “seen-it-all” recovering New York City fashion editor, there was no shortage of style surprises that truly baffled the imagination. Prints, textiles, and accessory combos were served up in victorious amounts. Grey Goose Girls embodied sobering poise while fully uniformed military mademoiselles scoped out the players in battle mode.

Swaths of young men ran amok in tight, baggy, and tailored high-low combinations pairing just the right amount of Hugo Boss shirts with Loudmouth ensembles. Rolex watches clearly had the right to be seen with Pabst Blue ribbon shorts, and while I was aghast with this uncanny combo I heard the Umpa-Lumpa golf guard with his blue-checkered socks yell “FOUR” and I ducked under my tired, minimalist threads.

With that, I quickly learned my first Pro-Am attendance lesson; more is not just more at the Pro Am ladies and gentlemen. More means more wins, more delicious threads, more character, more Grey Goose, and dare we say, more celebration!

In the meantime, we pulled aside some exemplary individuals that cut an elegantly-athletic line through the Pro Am. Sorry Bill, you could not be reached for comment but that’s okay. We thought it was time to give others the limelight!

    So wonderful to see “extra-ordinary” people be the focus of a Pebble Beach magazine. You are highlighting the exact people who the event caters to, right? There would be no real reason for the AT&T Pro-Am tournament to exist if it weren’t for the spectators. Thanks for cherishing them!
