Pebble Beach Golf Links Behind the Scenes with Alan Shipnuck
Sports Illustrated's Alan Shipnuck, a former cart boy at Pebble Beach Golf Links, takes you on a tour of his favorite old hangout.

One of the best weeks of the year is the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Pros mingle with amateurs, and we get to watch the gorgeous Pebble Beach on our televisions for an entire week. If you missed anything from GOLF.com this past week, have no fear. We're here to catch you up on the week's happenings in four photos.

In her inaugural column for GOLF.com, LPGA pro Natalie Gulbis takes on one of golf's biggest issues: slow play. Gulbis details how pros feel about the current slow-play penalties and how to solve six-hour rounds once and for all.

2. Jordan Spieth's caddie hits a stone-cold shank

 

Life is good for Michael Greller, Jordan Spieth's caddie, but not so much this week. During a practice round before the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Greller teed it up on the iconic par-3 7th and promptly hit a shank into the ocean. 

3. Rickie Fowler just needs some good luck for more wins

Rickie Fowler lost a playoff on Sunday, but we crunched the numbers to reveal a key aspect of Fowler not being in the winner's circle more often. It's bad luck! See why a little good fortune could tip the scale in Fowler's favor.
