clampett-bobbyBobby Clampett, Champions Tour’s player, gives his inside-perspective on playing the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach and mingling with this year’s talented juniors. 

“The Legends & Leaders dinner at the Beach Club was the highlight of my day.  I was able to spend some quality time with my junior partner, Jose Perez, from The First Tee of Monterey County, and get to know him better.  Jose and I sat at dinner with a table full of juniors from all over the country.  They were all so engaging, excited and in awe of being at Pebble Beach, and in the presence of some of the best golfers in history.  My house guest and close friend, Bernhard Langer came over for a visit and introduced himself to my table of juniors.  Such a classy thing to do!legends and leaders blog

Today, I am off the 10th tee at Pebble Beach at 7:41 a.m.  Sunrise isn’t until 7:00 a.m., so I’m curious as to how I am going to warm up in the morning, as I will have to leave the driving range at 7:10 a.m.  Cliff, my caddie, will meet me on the putting green at 6:00 a.m.  I’m looking forward to playing today!  There’s something about playing in this tournament and playing Pebble Beach that always gets me mentally in the game!”
