Rose Wins by Three Strokes at Pebble Beach With a 66 in Monday Finish

For Justin Rose, it was a bit of morning glory.

The 42-year-old Rose returned on Monday to complete a six-under-par 66 and capture the weather-delayed 82nd AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by three strokes over Brendon Todd and Brandon Wu at famed Pebble Beach Golf Links.

“It’s amazing how long it’s been,” said Rose, whose last victory came in the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla. “The credit belongs to all the people around me who have continued to believe in me. This is right up there with all the great victories that I have had. It was a little tough out there a few times this week, but everything was smooth today.

“To make birdie on my first hole today and then to add a couple more coming home while keeping my card clean was important. You never forget how to do it, but it’s not easy to win, and I was a little edgy, but I actually got more calm as I went along.

“This is such a wonderful tournament and the beauty of this place, Pebble Beach is just a great place to win.”

Rose, who claimed his 11th PGA Tour victory including the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion to go with 12 other titles around the world and the 2016 Olympic Gold Medal, sank an eight-foot eagle putt on the sixth hole of the final round and his three birdies on the last 10 holes Monday morning left him with a winning score of 18-under 266.

Todd, who has three PGA Tour victories and two on the Korn Ferry Tour, made a six-foot eagle putt on the second hole on Sunday and added four birdies in five holes to start the back nine in a 65, while Brandon Wu of Danville of Stanford, who won the 2021 Korn Ferry Tour Championship, made an 11-foot eagle putt on the sixth hole and birdied three of the last five holes in a bogey-free 66.

Denny McCarthy, who birdied seven of the first nine holes on Sunday, added three birdies on the back nine to shoot 64 and finished four shots back in a tie for fourth with Keith Mitchell, who birdied two holes on each nine in a bogey-free 68, and Peter Malnati, who birdied three of the first six holes in a 69.

Taylor Pendrith of Canada collected eight birdies in a bogey-free 64 and wound up six down in a tie for seventh with Kevin Yu of Taiwan, who birdied three of the last four holes in a bogey-free 67, Ryan Moore, who holed a 10-foot eagle putt at No. 2 and birdied two of the last three holes for another 67, and Joseph Bramlett of San Jose and Stanford, who had three birdies coming home in a 69.

Defending champion Tom Hoge also had three birdies on the back nine while closing with a 70 to tie for 48th.
