The PGA Tour heads back to the Monterey Peninsula for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, or the ole Crosby Clambake. This tournament features a pretty stacked field this year, with defending champion Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm and Phil Mickelson


2018 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am rankings: Top 10 picks

1. Dustin Johnson -- Playing in a comfortable setting with his father-ish-in-law, DJ should continue his great run here and overall dominance of the PGA Tour.

2. Jason Day -- Day has a tremendous record here. Basically a top-15 lock. We're assuming his back feels at least OK. Otherwise, we might have to hedge.

3. Jon Rahm -- Not going to let a Sunday fall at Phoenix taint where he is. Off to a great start in 2018, but it's clear the pressure of potentially getting to No. 1 in the world is an issue.

4. Jordan Spieth -- Spieth missed the cut in Phoenix, and there's a disturbing early-season trend developing with Spieth's putting. When he slumps there, it impacts a lot of his game. Still like him here.

5. Rory McIlroy -- Could probably bump up McIlroy to fourth or third here, but since he doesn't have the same level of experience with this event, he's somehow fifth.

6. Bryson DeChambeau -- The Artist stumbled on Sunday in Phoenix, but his 2017-18 season has been wonderful so far: made six of seven cuts, with five top-17 finishes.

7. Austin Cook -- Guys with experience win this tournament. Cook isn't that guy, but he hasn't missed a cut all year and continues to refine his game. Solid pick, even if not a historical threat to win.

8. Chesson Hadley -- I'm back on the Chessie Train. A T-5 in Phoenix was great, and he had back-to-back T-10s here in his initial PGA Tour run.

9. Pat Perez -- Not his best in Phoenix, but I also wonder how a hometown guy handles that week very well at all. Great record in this event.

10. Patrick Cantlay -- I want to put Cantlay higher, but he's been a little off so far in 2018. His effort here last year (a mere T-48) was the start of an incredible resurgence.

My DraftKings primary lineup

    1. Jason Day - $10,900
    2. Pat Perez - $8,600
    3. Chesson Hadley - $8,500
    4. Nick Watney - $7,700
    5. Chris Kirk - $7,100
    6. Scott Stallings - $6,900
