Albeit 24 hours late, Pga Tour golfers archive last weekend's tournament. In fact, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-AM 2023 (prize pool 9 million dollars), a Californian event born way back in 1937, has ended. After tasting the three courses, the protagonists of the last round returned to the par 72 of Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Justin Rose, results
Justin Rose was not distracted, good at keeping his concentration high after yesterday's interruption. The English veteran completes the fourth lap with a solid -6, holding off his main pursuers. For the 43-year-old Johannesburg-born aggregate score of -18 and a three-shot lead over Americans Brandon Wu and Brendon Todd.
Rose is the first European to triumph in this tournament, and also breaks into tenth place in the FedEx Cup. -14 and fourth position for the Americans Denny McCarthy, Keith Mitchell, and Peter Malnati. The home trio precedes by two strokes those who with a score of -12 close the top ten in seventh position.
They are the Canadian Taylor Pendrith, the Chinese from Taipei Kevin Yu, and the Americans Joseph Bramlett and Ryan Moore. Hank Lebioda loses 10 positions, who after a promising start shuts down in the final stages of the tournament.
For him 15th place with -9 in the company of the Irishman Seamus Power among others. For Rose, the success achieved in Pebble Beach is the twenty-fifth of his professional career. The Englishman boasts a title on the Japan Tour, one on the Asian Tour, two on the Sunshine Tour, and 22 equally divided between the PGA and the European Tour.
Finally, he returns to success on the US circuit four years after the Farmers Insurance Open 2019. The PGA Tour became its own organization in 1968 when it split from the PGA of America, which is now primarily an association of golf professionals, such as instructors and club managers.
Tournament players first formed their own organization, the Association of Professional Golfers (APG). Later, in 1968, the players abolished the APG and agreed to operate as the PGA "Tournament Players Division", a fully autonomous division of the PGA, overseen by a new 10-member Tournament Policy Board. The name then officially changed to "PGA Tour" in 1975.
