After a thrilling end to the Waste Management Open, the PGA Tour heads out to the famed Pebble Beach for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week. This event brings us a slightly different set up than your normal tournament, with amateurs playing alongside the pros.

With that factor and the history of the field in this tournament in mind, let's take a look at three golfers to watch out for when building your fantasy team this week.

Dustin Johnson
Dustin Johnson has a great track record in this event, winning it twice before. He is also coming off a runner-up finish in Saudi Arabia. Johnson's length off the tee has always been a strength of his and it should continue to help him at Pebble Beach, one of the Tour's shorter courses. Additionally, he has a familiar playing partner in his father-in-law, Wayne Gretzky, which could make him more comfortable in this event.

Phil Mickelson
Phil Mickelson should be liked in this event for many of the same reasons as Dustin Johnson. He has done really well here in the past, famously adoring the pro-am aspect of this event. He is the defending champion this year and is also coming off an impressive showing in Saudi Arabia, where he finished T-3, one spot behind Johnson.

Jason Day
Yes, its true Jason Day isn't playing at 100 percent, but his past success at this event has us looking past that. Last season he finished T-4 at this event. Of his 10 career starts at this event, Day has finished in the top-15 in eight instances, owning arguably the most consistent resume of anyone on Tour here.
