Tom Hoge Edges Jordan Spieth to Win AT&T Pebble Beach
Tom Hoge made four birdies on the back nine on Sunday to overtake Jordan Spieth and win the AT&T Pebble Beach tournament.
This is Hoge’s is first career PGA Tour win.
“It feels pretty good, almost a little bit of shock. It’s been so long since I’ve won anything, I think I forgot how to celebrate,” Hoge told CBS after the round.
The win also gets Hoge into the 2022 Masters and 500 FedEx Cup Points.
After shooting an even par 36 on the front nine, Hoge birdied the 11th and 14th holes to get into contention.
He tied the lead with a birdie on 16 and took a two-shot lead with a long birdie putt on 17.
Hope parred the 18th hole to win the tournament.
Spieth Falls Apart
Spieth led the tournament for the majority of the back nine, at one point leading the field by two.
However, Spieth bogeyed the par-3 17th hole after putting his tee shot in the front bunker.
Spieth missed about a five or six footer for par and made bogey.
On the par-5 18th hole, Spieth put his tee shot under the tree and his second shot into the bunker on the left.
Spieth would walk off the par-5 with a par to lose the tournament.
