Boxing star Canelo Alvarez lights up pebble beach pro-am golf event

World champion Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez is among the star attractions at the on going PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula Golf Courses.

Alvarez is among the amateur participants at the event who are bringing just as much excitement as the golf professionals. The Guadalajara’s Alvarez took up golf during the pandemic, quickly growing addicted to the leisure activity and proving to be a natural golfer.

SuperSport viewers on DStv can enjoy all the four-rounds action from the PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula Golf Courses all through to Sunday 6 February 2022.

During his undisputed super middleweight championship tour, Alvarez found time to enter two celebrity tournaments and even claimed top honors in the 2021 BMW Charity Pro-Am tournament last June in Greer, South Carolina.

“I love it; I will hit balls for three hours a day,” Alvarez said of his passion for golf. “I’m golfing every day. My handicap is about nine or 10 [as of last October]. It’s hard. Sometimes when I don’t play well, I get mad. But I’m looking forward to playing a lot more when I retire. I really enjoy those tournaments.”

The Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula Golf Courses run 6,816 (par 72), 7,035 (par 72) and 6,958 (par 71) respectively. The purse for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Open is $8.7million.
