"I've seen it before," defending champion Vaughn Taylor said of rain and wind. "It's not that enjoyable, but when you get around Pebble and you still look around ... I think someone said last night even when it's at its gloomiest, it's still beautiful. That's what you've got to focus on when you're out there. If it's nasty weather, just take a look out at the ocean. If you can see it. Because it's still an amazing place regardless of the weather."
"I had a nice stretch there for about a month and went out to Reno and just struggled with the altitude," he said. "Just couldn't figure out how far the ball was going."
