This week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is the last chance for players to qualify for the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship two weeks from now at The Golf Club at Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz.
Geoff Ogilvy has played the event each of the last seven years, winning it in 2006 and 2009. At 69th in the world, however, the 35-year-old is on the outside looking in. Only the top 64 qualify.
Players competing in this week's Joburg Open on the European Tour can also qualify.
One player who made a significant jump in the rankings last week was Stephen Gallacher, moving from 111th to 60th after winning the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.
Only five players between No. 56 and 75 are playing this week. Here's a look:
