Monday brought sparkling weather to Pebble Beach for the first day of prActice rounds. For many fans the day was a chance to get up close to their favorite players before the hoards arrive for tournament day. “It was beautiful,” said spectator Tim Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is here for the week from Orange County and like many fans he was not anticipating heat at Pebble Beach. In Monterey the National Weather Service recorded a record breaking 97 degrees on the thermometer. The temperatures were cooler out at Pebble but the USGA does not have an official temperature gauge. “We are just about finished we’ve been here for six hours and we are dead tired,” said John Sayer who was taking a load off on the shade. According to Pebble Beach Company the average high in June is 67 degrees. The U.S. Open has brought big name golfers including Tiger Woods who is coming off a win at the Masters in April. Returning champion Brooks Koepka also tees off at Pebble on Monday. If he wins it will be his third U.S. Open win in three years. The event has also brought celebrities out to the course. Golf fan and Big Little Loes actress Kathryn Newton was spotted at the media center on Monday. Newton who has spent a time in Monterey filming the HBO show is back for fun this week. On Sunday she played Spyglass Hill and on Monday she was heading to Pacific Grove for more golfing following her morning at the Open. Monday was a busy day on the greens but the crowds are expected to grow as the week goes on with an estimated 250,000 total fans expected to attend.
