Manning latest QB to join field at Pebble Beach 

This might be the best way for Peyton Manning to get over the Super Bowl — a week at Pebble Beach.

Manning was a late entry to play in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which starts Thursday. He will be the amateur partner for Scott Langley. Also playing in their group is Greg Owen and Harris Barton, who played for the 49ers.

Seattle’s defense overwhelmed Manning and the Denver Broncos in a 43-8 win on Sunday to give the Seahawks their first Super Bowl title. Manning made one previous appearance at Pebble Beach in 2009, playing with pro Webb Simpson.

Manning, who won his fifth NFL MVP award this season, is part of a field that already includes other NFL quarterbacks.

Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers), Tom Brady (New England Patriots) and Alex Smith (Kansas City Chiefs) were already entered in the event.

On Tuesday, Smith played with the 49ers’ team as part of the Chevron Shoot-Out charity event between the former 49ers and current and past Giants players.
