Ted Potter Jr.'s Pebble play - performance, not pedigree

Ted Potter Jr.'s Pebble play - performance, not pedigree

Ted Potter Jr. held off a host of big names Sunday to claim the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am title.

Potter started the final round Sunday tied with Dustin Johnson, the No. 1 player in the world for the previous year.

Potter got off to a hot start en route to a closing round of three-under 69 for a 17-under 270 total, having shared the overnight lead with Johnson, and never relinquished his lead.

Johnson ended tied for second with fellow Americans Phil Mickelson and Chez Reavie and Australian Jason Day on 14-under.

"I struggled when broke I my ankle". Johnson played a low chip and grazed the cup. That included a birdie chip from the rough on the par-three seventh hole. Needing an eagle to have any chance, his approach to the 18th was a few yards short and found a bunker. "Two under in 36 holes is not too good as well as I thought I was playing".

"It feels so good right now", Potter said.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth got a bobblehead doll in his return to Pebble Beach, but failed to capture the crystal trophy and finished nine strokes off the pace. Day has not finished outside the top 25 since the 2017 Open Championship. With back-to-back runner-up finishes, Reavie goes to No. 43 in the world. Kevin Streelman and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald won the team event.
