VIDEO: Pro golfers at Charles Schwab Cup give tips for playing San Francisco courses

Professional golfers swung through Harding Park in San Francisco this last weekend for the Charles Schwab Cup, a stop on the Championship Tour.

One of the players in the tournament was San Mateo native Michael Allen.

Though Allen now lives in Phoenix, he says he enjoys returning to the Bay Area to play golf.

Allen in the video explains what it is about Bay Area golf that makes playing here enjoyable for him, including the trees and the cold weather.

Also at the Charles Schwab Cup at Harding Park was Loren Roberts, a San Luis Obispo native. Roberts explains the tricks to playing golf in San Francisco and why it is different from other places in the nation.
