Vaughn Taylor wins the AT&T Pebble Beach, beating Phil Mickelson by just one shot in California.
Vaughn carded a final round -7 under pr 65 at Pebble Beach to win the tournament with a -17 under par total.
He said the amazing win, his first in ten years, was just unbelievable, the real blow coming on the 16th, with 30ft birdie putt;
“I’ve had that putt before. It’s a hard putt.”
“I wasn’t even thinking about making that putt. I knew it broke a lot, and it’s a little uphill at the end.”
“It’s really easy to leave that putt short. I just flushed it. It was kind of going in from the start.”
“It’s been a long time, and I didn’t think it was going to happen.”
“I’ve worked so hard, and just kept getting knocked down, and knocked down.”
I can’t believe it actually happened again, it’s just amazing, I’m lost for words right now.”
Phil Mickelson finished in second place, with an even par 72 last round, finishing agonizingly just one shot short at -16 under par, after missing a short putt on 18 to force a play-off;
“It never crossed my mind that one on 18 wouldn’t go in.”
Jonas Blixt was in third place at -15 under par, a last round -3 under 69 cementing a solid week on the golf course, with all four rounds in the sixties.
