Seventh heaven at Pebble Beach


PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Took a walk down to Pebble Beach Golf Links’ seventh hole because, well . . . because it’s the seventh, and ran into Paul Casey who had an interesting take on the 109-yard hole.

“How about that?” he smiled after hitting his tee shot to 15 feet. “A cut lob wedge off a tee.”

Asked if No. 7 was the best short par 3 in the game, Casey considered the option for a moment: “The Postage Stamp (No. 8 at Royal Troon) scares me more, but this one is prettier.”
