Jet-lagged Johnson pulls out of AT&T Pebble Beach

Two-time AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am winner, Dustin Johnson has announced his withdrawal from this year’s event following his win at the European Tour’s Saudi International on Sunday.

“Following his successful week in Saudi Arabia, Dustin has decided it would be best to enjoy a week at home before The Genesis Invitational and the World Golf Championships at The Concession,” said his manager, David Winkle.

“Other than being a bit jet lagged, he is feeling great and looking forward to the weeks ahead.”

“While he is disappointed to miss the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which is always one of his favourite weeks, he feels his decision is for the best.”

The World No.1 has a superb record at Pebble Beach with back-to-back wins coming in 2009 and 2010 along with runner-up finishes in 2014 and 2018.
