Faxon will be missing Pebble Beach

Thu., Feb. 9, 2012

Brad Faxon never missed the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am ( noon today, Golf Channel) when healthy, playing 26 times until he moved over to the 50-and-over Champions Tour. He is in Boca Raton, Fla., this week and missing Pebble in a big way. Faxon said he thought about asking for a sponsor’s exemption, but he had done that the last three years. His hope is to prove himself on the Champions Tour by winning – he already has one title – so that he’s not a “pitiful” exemption. How fond is he of the tournament? “When I’m with friends, I tell more great stories about Pebble Beach than any other place,” he said. – Associated Press
