Main Event (9th -12th): AT&T Pro Am Golf Tournament

After four days (four rounds) of golf, the winner of this year’s 2017 AT&T Pro-Am Golf Tournament is none other than 23 year old, Jordan Spieth.  Spieth closed with a 2-under 70 for a four-shot victory over former U.S. Amateur champion and close friend, Kelly Kraft.  This was Spieth’s first 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour since the Masters.

Going into the final round on Sunday, you’d think there’d be some excitement and a lot of drama, but with Spieth having a six-shot lead, there was little doubt on the outcome making it for some pretty boring golf. “Played a lot of boring golf today,”  “which was exactly what we needed.”

This was Spieth’s ninth PGA Tour win making him the first player since Woods with that many victories before turning 24. Woods won 15 times. Equally impressive is that Spieth won for the fifth time by at least three shots.

Shot of the Day by Spieth

For Spieth, the shot of the day came on the eighth hole.  Facing a 210-yard shot over the ocean and into the breeze of the toughest greens at Pebble, the ball landed just 20 feet from the cup for another routine par.  It was perfect!

“I was very, very excited once that ball landed on the green,” Spieth said. “That was really avoiding a big number there. That could have been a double or triple very, very easily, if that doesn’t come out the right way. So that was the shot of the day for me.”

Round of the day

Gary Woodland made a big move Sunday after carding 10 birdies on one of the most scenic courses in the world. Woodland notched seven birdies in a 10-hole stretch from Nos. 5-14, and then added two more over his final three holes. It led to a 7-under 65 and allowed Woodland to jump into a tie for fifth, his third top-6 finish of the young season.

Biggest disappointment

Snedeker appeared ready to put some heat on Spieth, but for the second time in the last three weeks he failed to muster a back-nine charge. Snedeker birdied three of his first six holes but dropped a shot on No. 9 and then closed with nine straight pars to shoot a 2-under 70 that left him alone in fourth.
