Here's everything you need to know about AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am One and Done Picks — our expert OAD picks for this week's PGA Tour Signature Event.

Year after year, the PGA Tour stops at Pebble Beach for a beautiful week of scenery, pro-am delays and dramatic finishes. Typically, this field is fairly weak, as the majority of the Tour would prefer to not play in a pro-am format or is playing in the Saudi International. This year, the event's status is elevated as a Signature Event, so we'll see the best players on Tour play one of the most scenic courses in the world.

This week for my One and Done Picks, I'm targeting players with strong iron games and an ability to hit precise shots onto these small greens. Additionally, because of the size of the greens and potential bad weather, we are looking for players with great short games.

2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am One and Done Picks

Viktor Hovland +1300

If you are looking for a golfer at the top of the board, Hovland may be your guy. I believe he is due to win at Pebble Beach at some point in his career. The biggest strength of his game is iron play, which is a huge factor on this course. I also like Hovland because he is a regular. Elevated status or not, we would see him play this event. Hovland initially burst onto the scene with a US Am win at this very golf course.

However, Hovland's iron game isn't trending well lately. Why would I like a golfer with poor iron play? Ownership! Hopefully, the rest of your pool notices that he isn't hitting the ball well and goes in another direction. Hovland is extremely talented and can turn it around in a heartbeat, so we're getting an elite level golfer at a fraction of what his ownership should be. Hovland is a great selection at the top of the 2024 Pebble Beach Pro Am One and Done board.

Matt Fitzpatrick +3500

Before Fitzpatrick became an "all world driver of the golf ball," Pebble Beach was the spot I thought was best for him. A golf course that requires solid iron play, precision wedge play and an elite short game absolutely screams Fitzpatrick. Although his biggest strength these days may just be the driver, the tools are all still there. Fitzpatrick is in for a huge 2024 and can surely notch a win at Pebble Beach. The last time we saw a shorter golf course gain elevated status was the 2023 RBC Heritage, which Fitzpatrick won. That event came down to Fitzpatrick and Jordan Spieth, two golfers who play the RBC Heritage yearly. We are getting a load of new names this year, but I wouldn't be shocked if it came down the usual suspects. Fitzpatrick surely fits that bill.

Corey Conners +12000

What you see is what you get with Conners. He's got precision accuracy across his bag, and he's constantly playing from the middle of the fairway and the middle of the greens. He is also a woeful putter. I'm not saying Conners will just turn it on this week, but this course is a great setup for him. Conners is a PGA Tour winner and has contended in some elite fields in his career. He provides such a safe game and will provide a high end payout finish. At the moment, his ball striking numbers are elite, but the putter is really holding him back. If he can just be average with the putter, Conners can contend this week.
