  • Pebble Beach Hole 13 Preview

    28 Feb 2013

    Pebble Beach is America's top-ranked and most famous golf course. The famed Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course is the most recent addition to World Golf Tour, now available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game.

    Hole 13 is an easier par 4 and a potential birdie hole for the pros as many are left with approach shots under 100 yards.

    In the final round of the 1972 U.S. Open, defending champion Lee Trevino pitched to within a few feet of the flagstick for a birdie. Trevino tied for fourth that year, won by Jack Nicklaus.

    The shot on World Golf Tour is only from 40 yards, but it's from the rough to a green that's sloped severely from right-to-left back toward the ocean.

    WGT Hole 13 Tip - Aim right and use extra power to get out of the rough.


    You can sign up for World Golf Tour here and play Pebble Beach, St Andrews and other famous golf courses free online.

  • Pebble Beach Hole 11 Preview

    26 Feb 2013

    Pebble Beach is America's top-ranked and most famous golf course. The famed Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course is the most recent addition to World Golf Tour, now available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game.

    Hole 11 is one of the harder par 4 holes at Pebble Beach. The drive is a relatively easy, but the small green is raised and surrounded by bunkers, making for a difficult approach shot.

    In the first round of the 2000 U.S. Open, Nick Faldo hit this 129-yard approach shot within a few feet of the hole for birdie, and went on to finish in 7th place that year. Faldo won six majors in his career, but never the U.S. Open. 

    You can try the same approach shot on World Golf Tour from 129 yards in the fairway to the challenging green.

    WGT Hole 11 Tip - Use a higher-lofted club and adjust your power carefully to get this shot close.

  • Pebble Beach Hole 10 Preview

    21 Feb 2013

    Pebble Beach is America's top-ranked and most famous golf course. The famed Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course is the most recent addition to World Golf Tour, now available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game.

    It doesn't get easier on the Back 9 at Pebble Beach. Hole 10 is a long par-4 right along the ocean. Many players end up short of the green and chipping their third shot.

    Mark O'Meara is no stranger to Pebble Beach, winning five AT&T National Pro-Ams here. But at the 2000 U.S. Open, O'Meara holed his 22-yard approach shot for a magical birdie on Hole 10.

    On World Golf Tour, you can try O'Meara's approach chip yourself. See if you can get this little chip-and-run to drop in the hole.

    WGT Hole 10 Tip - Aim left, as the green breaks left-to-right back toward the ocean.

  • Pebble Beach Hole 7 Preview

    19 Feb 2013

    Pebble Beach is America's top-ranked and most famous golf course. The famed Pebble Beach Golf Links golf course is the most recent addition to World Golf Tour, now available as a free closest-to-the-hole online game.

    Hole 7 at Pebble Beach is one of the most memorable in all of golf. You're on a cliff, surrounded on three sides by the Pacific Ocean crashing on the rocks below. You face a short downhill shot to a green that seems to get smaller as you stand on the tee.

    There have been many well known shots here. Back in 1982, Tom Watson stuck his tee shot to just 2 feet on Sunday, putting him five under par on his way to the U.S. Open Championship.

    On World Golf Tour, you'll be on that same tee virtually, facing one of the best shots in golf.

    WGT Hole 7 Tip - You'll need to use a little less power on your shot, as the hole is 28 feet below you.
