Sergio Garcia is playing Pebble Beach this week for the first time since 2001. Luke Donald hadn't hit the Monterey Peninsula course since missing the cut in 2007.

They came for a preview of the U.S. Open. Pebble has hosted both events in the same year four times, with Jack Nicklaus (1972)

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- The U.S. Golf Association is convinced that Pebble Beach is primed for the assault of 156 of the world's finest players in the 92nd national Open, which started its 72-hole run early today.And most of the 156 players are just hoping the USGA hasn't overdone it."This is a very hard golf course," said Tom Watson, who captured the last Open (1982) played over the same terrain. "These are the smallest greens we play. They're firm and a little bumpy -- you won't see many putts go in."

He then beat his nerves and he beat Tom Watson down the stretch to capture his first tournament victory since he won at Pebble Beach seven years ago."

Either way, Sunday evening figures to mark a turning point. Tiger Woods jets off to the PGA Championship with yet another WGC-Bridgestone Invitational title in his possession, signaling the belated breakthrough from his winter of scandal, counseling and tabloid fodder. At the very least, he makes the winner sweat down the homestretch. Otherwise, we're left to consider him an ordinary tour pro. Until further notice, anyway. That isn't to say Woods couldn't blitz the year's final major, a couple of FedEx Cup playoff events and another large bucket of Player of the Year honors.

Five weeks ago, Graeme McDowell proved the steadiest when Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and other marquee names couldn't keep from snagging golf spikes at Pebble Beach. Louis Oosthuizen follows with the most dominant non-Tiger performance in a major since Jack Nicklaus 30 years ago. The casual golf fan asks, "Who are these guys?" The answer: Maybe folks just haven't been paying enough attention. Especially when it comes to players who spend the bulk of their time on the other side of the pond.

The U.S. Open trophy accompanied Graeme McDowell to Jay Leno's stage. And the set of "Entourage." It came with him to a charity pro-am in Ireland. It's not at St. Andrews this week. As much as golf's newest major champion would like to keep basking in the afterglow of his triumph at Pebble Beach, McDowell understands there are two directions one can go after he has scaled that peak. "It's difficult to put Pebble Beach behind me," McDowell acknowledged Tuesday, "and I don't want to put it behind me because I'm enjoying every second of it and it's been an amazing experience.

Just how close did U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell come to not even getting a tee time at Pebble Beach? Had Brian Gay , Scott Verplank or Michael Sim birdied his final hole at the Byron Nelson Championship, McDowell would have been knocked from the top 50 in the world rankings on the day those exemptions were given out. The Northern Ireland native had not entered sectional qualifying as a backup plan. "I really felt like if I didn't get in, it wasn't going to be the end of my summer," McDowell said.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Dustin Johnson was informed late Saturday that, going back to 1975, more than half the players holding a 54-hole lead at a PGA Tour event had failed to close out the victory. Why would that be? "I've got no idea," Johnson said. He does now. Johnson imploded early Sunday, setting the tone for a day at Pebble Beach that will be remembered for producing carnage from top players rather than the first European-born U.S. Open champion in 40 years.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — When they see the man with the gap-toothed grin and giant polo insignia on his sweater, they holler stuff like: "Do it for the baby boomers!" and "Come on, win one for the old guys!" Tom Watson, at 60, less than a year removed from nearly winning the British Open, has become a cause. "It has been a good run," he said. Watson didn't want that run to end Friday. This is his 31st U.S. Open and likely to be his last. He's the only man to compete in all five Pebble Beach Opens — 1972, '82 (which he won)

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- When John Daly's driver launches a golf ball, nobody is quite sure how far it will go.But there's a scary parallel in Daly's career.Since it took off like a rocket last year, spotlighted by his stunning victory in the PGA Championship, nobody has a clue where that will touch down, either.There's a chance Daly, who was known as "The Wild Thing" as an underclassman at Arkansas, might wind up out of bounds.Already his personal life is developing more subplots than a soap opera -- he is known for heavy drinking, and a paternity and palimony suit may be filed against him within a day. He is clearly having trouble handling his career, as evidenced by his failure to enter next week's Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Before Phil Mickelson went on a late afternoon birdie binge Friday, the most interesting name on the U.S. Open leaderboard was the generic "Johnson." Dustin Johnson has the power to obliterate par-5s, the experience to navigate Pebble Beach's slopey, fickle greens and a caddie who sounds as if he should have sunscreen on his nose and a surfboard in his arm. "Dude," caddie Bobby Brown said, "we have a vibe going." Johnson already has won twice here, triumphing at the last two AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Ams.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — He's a teenager with a huge following — literally. Wherever Japan's Ryo Ishikawa goes, a media contingent of about 40 follows. "I've played with him in Japan and it's even worse over there," said Rory McIlroy, who watched Ishikawa shoot 70-71 to put himself in contention at the U.S. Open. "He handles it very, very well. That's probably the most impressive thing about him — apart from how he plays golf." Ishikawa, who stands 5 feet 7, 140 pounds and won't turn 19 until September, shot a 12-under 58 last month to win his seventh Japan Tour title.
