Sentimental rounds at Pebble Beach

For many golfers, playing Pebble Beach is no ordinary round. It can be a retirement present, a place to propose marriage or celebrate a milestone. It can even be an experience someone has before they know their time on this planet is nearly up.

Pebble Beach Golf Links is celebrating 100 years in 2019 by hosting the U.S. Open. But when the world's best players leave, the doors will open back up to the public, where amateur golfers from all over the world will come to experience the course for themselves.

Recently, Matt Ginella chronicled the experience for Golf Channel's Live From Pebble Beach for the 2019 U.S. Open, and asked golfers to chime in with their experiences at Pebble Beach and the responses were wide-ranging.
