Ted Potter Jnr triumphs at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and made it look easy, with a three shot winning margin at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.
Shooting a final round -3 under 69 to post an AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am winning total of -17 under par, Ted out-classed the rest of the field by three shots.
Ted was amazed at his success, but said he worked well with his putter;
“It’s definitely pleasing. I mean, it was a struggle there.”
“When you break your ankle and you don’t know what’s going to happen with your golf swing or career, to come back from that, I mean it’s just unbelievable right now.”
” I knew on the back nine, I saw I had a two-shot lead, if I played smart golf and I knew I was putting well, so hitting a lot of the center of the greens and trying to give myself a chance at birdies, those guys would have to catch me coming in.”
“It’s just so good right now. To get my second career win after five years away from it.”
“Going back to the Masters is going to be definitely another dream come true. Try to get back there and win the Par-3 Contest again. That was a lot of fun. “
“This has just been a blast this week and it’s unbelievable right now.”
Trailing those three shots behind at -14 under par were, World #1 Dustin Johnson, even par 72 today, multiple winner here Phil Mickelson, -5 under 67, Chez Reavie, -4 under 68, and Jason Day from Australia, carding a final round -2 under 70, which included a miraculous par at the final hole after hitting his second shot onto the beach, greenside bunker with his third, four on and one putt.
