Four Tour challenge to take place at Pebble Beach

Defending champion Kevin Sutherland and U.S. Senior Open winner Bruce Fleisher head a field of players from four pro tours at the Callaway Golf Pebble Beach Invitational.

The 72-hole tournament starts Thursday at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Del Monte Golf Course. Players from the PGA Tour, Senior PGA Tour, LPGA Tour and Buy.com Tour will compete for $300,000 in prize money.

Each tour's players will tee off from different spots.

Sutherland made a 5-foot birdie putt on the final hole last year for a one-stroke victory over Don Pooley. Sutherland's second-place finish at the Tucson Open in January was his top showing this year on the PGA Tour. He's 32nd on the money list with more than $1.5 million.

Tom Lehman, the 1998 champion, is also entered, as are 1987 U.S. Open champion Scott Simpson, Kirk Triplett, Duffy Waldorf, Mike Reid, Brett Quigley, Paul Stankowski, Rich Beem, Bob May and Olin Browne.

Fleisher, who had three Senior PGA Tour wins this season, is second on the money list with more than $2.4 million. Jim Thorpe, Andy North, and John Mahaffey are among the other Senior Tour players here.

LPGA Tour players include Helen Alfredsson and Michelle McGann.

The Buy.com Tour contingent includes Todd Fischer, third in the tournament last year, and leading money-winner Chad Campbell.

The first three rounds of the event incorporate a pro-am format, in which a four-player team will compete with a different professional each day.

Players will rotate between Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Del Monte over the first three days, while the entire field plays Pebble Beach in Sunday's final round.
