Jordan Spieth holds off field to win at Pebble Beach

Share

Spieth didn't need to do anything flashy on Sunday at Pebble Beach Golf Links; his Saturday round, a 7-under 65 highlighted by 13 one-putt greens gave him a six-shot edge heading into the final round.

"It's not really worth me spending time arguing, but I'm just not really appreciative of people who travel to benefit off of other people's success", Spieth told reporters after the incident. The two-time major victor carried a six shot lead into Sunday's final round. "It was a dream round when you are leading by a bunch". He putted for birdie on all but one hole and when he drained a 30-foot bomb for a birdie two on the 17 hole, his work was done.

Jordan Spieth's doing Jordan Spieth things again.

Spieth, incidentally, was the seventh straight player in his 20s to win on the PGA Tour.

It was Spieth's ninth tour title and, aged 23, he is the youngest person to reach that landmark since Tiger Woods.

It's the fourth time in five years the two-time MVP quarterback has teamed with the Madison native and three-time PGA Tour victor for the event.

He added: "It has been a tremendous four years on the PGA Tour with ups and downs".

But there were no thoughts of that disastrous afternoon as he shut out the opposition by playing flawless golf. But that's what was needed today. Kraft's runner-up check more than doubled his career earnings. "I didn't hit a great chip shot, but I made a nice putt to save a good round".

With tee times moved up an hour in a bid to avoid the worst of the weather, Day said his group played only four holes in the rain.

The lone bogey on the back came on No. 12 and Woodland followed with two straight birdies and four over the final six for a flawless 10 on the day, capping the round by curling in a 24-foot birdie putt on No. 18.

Kelly Kraft came second on 15 under after making six birdies and a single bogey in his round of 67 while Dustin Johnson was third a shot further back. "It's just such a unique position, I tried to soak it in". Snedeker closed with nine straight pars for a 70 to finish fourth. "I just didn't make anything out there". I really felt like something special was going to happen.

Gary Woodland, a two-time PGA Tour victor, had 10 birdies and three bogeys en route to a 65 - the day's low round. He was joined at 12 under by Jon Rahm and Jason Day, the world's No. 1 ranked golfer. Day finished with a short birdie on No. 18 and a final-round 67.

Day had 23 birdies and an eagle in the tournament and also three rounds in the 60s. But his third-round 75 ended his victory chances. This is a lot of star power for a play-in game, even with two hugely flawed teams.

It was Spieth's first win on the PGA Tour since the Dean & DeLuca Invitational last May and his first win since the Australian Open in November on the Australasia Tour. Oppenheim finished with a par 72 and Noh had 70 and finished with two birdies.

Mark Hubbard had a 3-under 69 at Pebble Beach, which is exposed along the coast.

A number of adults, who Spieth thought were professional autograph seekers, became abusive when the American refused to sign anything for them.

"It's going to be windy and rainy and it's going to make play more hard", Johnson said.
