Pebble Beach ups purse to $5,000,000

The purse for the 2003 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has been raised from $4 million to $5 million, with the winner to receive $900,000.

The Monterey Peninsula Foundation, the governing body of the tournament, announced the increase for the PGA Tour event, set for Feb. 3-9 at Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Poppy Hills.

"Raising the purse for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am to $5 million positively impacts this prestigious event," said Ollie Nutt, the foundation's executive vice president.

"We have always attracted an impressive professional field, and this will serve to further maintain our position on the PGA Tour schedule."

One possible drawback is the likely absence of Tiger Woods, who probably will not play following knee surgery this month.
