AT&T Pebble Beach
Watch Daniel Berger eagle the 18th at Pebble to win the AT&T and get some sweet, sweet revenge
Daniel Berger reacts after making his eagle putt to win on the 18th green during the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Daniel Berger didn’t just win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He won with panache, making an eagle 3 on the 18th hole to cap a closing 65 and grab a two-stroke win over Maverick McNealy.
Sunday’s result becomes even more impressive when you consider the way that Berger played the home hole to finish his third round on Saturday. The eventual winner made a double-bogey 7 after hitting his first drive OB right, falling two shots back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth and playing his way out of the final threesome for Sunday.
Suffice it to say, Berger got his revenge in the final round. Tied for the lead with Maverick McNealy while standing on the tee, Berger ripped his drive between the sentinel tree in the fairway and the bunker to the right. He left himself 253 yards to the hole, and hit a baby draw 3-wood that he later described as the best he’d ever hit with the club, the ball landing softly on the small green, 39 feet, 7 inches from the hole.
Needing a birdie to take the clubhouse lead, Berger did himself one better with the putt:
“That was the best putt I’ve hit in my life,” Berger said afterward, a statement that’s hard to refute.
Impressively, it was Berger's second eagle of the day and fourth of the week. And it earned him a fourth career PGA Tour title.
