Brandt Snedeker Tops Own Mark, Wins Pebble Beach
Coming off a terrible 2014, Brandt Snedeker delivered in the biggest tournament of 2015 to date, breaking his own record at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, firing a 64-67-67-67 – 265 to win the even by three strokes over Nick Watney.
Neither Watney, nor anyone else, really had a chance against Snedeker, who didn’t record a single bogey, and knocked in four birdies for his third straight 67.
Watney was one stroke back to start the game and shot a 69, putting pressure on early, but firing too many bogeys to make a serious push. Watney started the day with four straight birdies, but gave two shots back with back-to-back bogeys. He gave two more strokes back with bogeys on 13 and 14 before rallying for birdies on 17 and 18.
Recently returned to the PGA Tour, Dustin Johnson had a great second showing, firing a 66 to finish tied for fourth at 17-under. Johnson had three birdies in the first six holes, and another four over the closing six.
After his flurry of birdies to take the lead with a scintillating 63 on Saturday, Jim Furyk stumbled and tumbled down the leaderboard with a 3-over 74 to drop back to a tie for seventh at 16-under.
