Former college stars Max Homa and Chris Williams have earned exemptions into the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am set to take place Feb. 6-9.

Homa is the 2013 NCAA individual champion and a Cal product. He is also making a start this week at the Farmers Insurance Open in La Jolla, Calif. with former Golden Bears teammate Michael Kim.

He has status on the Web.com Tour through Q-School.

Homa played in two PGA Tour fall events – the Frys.com Open and the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open – and finished T-9 and T-30, respectively.

Williams is the former No. 1 amateur in the world and graduated from Washington last spring. He turned pro after graduation and was a member of the 2011 U.S. Walker Cup team.

Homa and Williams played in the 2013 U.S. Open, but both missed the cut.
