Thomas Hampson in one of his favorite roles: Golfer
Thomas played with the professional Brandel Chamblee also known from the Golf Channel fame. The tournament started spectacularly strong having achieved as high as second place on the first day, unfortunately as so often in the game of golf, the wheels came off in the third round and the great, famous “cut” was not achieved.
The tournament is a great event run by a spectacular army of volunteers and professional staff that make every golfer’s dream come true. Thomas had a great time and is looking forward to making the cut in a future year.
Listen to Thomas’ live interview with Murph & Mac from Pebble Beach:
Enclosed are some of Thomas’s snapshots from the most beautiful golf courses on the peninsula – Spy Glass and Pebble Beach.

The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is a 72-hole PGA TOUR golf championship dating back to the 1930’s when Bing Crosby gathered a ‘few friends’ to raise money for charity… and have a little fun.
