Pebble Beach Pro-Am postponed until tomorrow

6:42 pm on 16 February 2009

The final round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament has been postponed until tomorrow after no play was possible today because of strong winds and heavy rain.

Weather permitting, the 68-man field will tee off early tomrrow, split into threesomes off both tees on the Pebble Beach Golf Links.

However, strong winds are also expected tomorrow and at least 50 percent of the players will have to complete the final round for it count.

Long-hitting American Dustin Johnson will take a four-shot lead over Canadian Mike Weir into the final round, having surged ahead of the pack by firing a five-under-par 67 yesterday.
