Watson, Wahlberg set for Pebble Beach

Home

Bubba Watson has been lured to the 2016 Pebble Beach Pro-Am by his good friend and actor Mark Wahlberg.

The tournament tees off on February 14, with a number of celebrities joining the PGA Tour regulars at the famous California links.

Watson did not play in the tournament last year, and wasn't planning on an appearance in 2016, but Wahlberg's participation appears to have swayed him.

Tournament director Steve John told the San Franciso Chronicle: "Mark drew Bubba back. That's pretty cool."  

Wahlberg is an avid amateur golfer, and recently travelled Ireland to spend time with Rory McIlroy.

Watson will be targeting his first win at the event.
