2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Who makes the pro and pro-am cuts

FOLLOW: iHEART | TUNEIN


After Saturday's third round of the 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the field of 156 pros and 156 amateurs will have each played one round on each of the three courses -- Spyglass Hill G.C., Monterey Peninsula C.C. and Pebble Beach G.L. -- in the tournament rotation.

It's at that point that a cut will be made in both the professional tournament and the pro-am competition.

For the pros, the cut line is the top 60 players and ties. For the pro-am, the top 25 teams (no ties) will advance to the final round. All of the golf will be played simultaneously at Pebble Beach, the official tournament host.

Those players who finish between 61st and 70th place, including ties, in the professional tournament will earn FedEx Cup points and official earnings but are not eligible to play in the final round -- that is unless they're playing in the pro-am competition only as part of a top-25 team.

On Sunday, the tee times will be made pushing the pro-am teams off first if the professional didn't make the top-60-and-ties cut. Otherwise, the pro-am team will tee off based on the professional's place on the leaderboard heading into the final round.
