Ted Potter got off to a hot start for the second straight day en route to a closing round of 69 to capture the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am tournament by three strokes on Sunday. That included a birdie chip from the rough on the par-three seventh hole.His only blemish Sunday was a three-putt bogey on is first hole but after that it was smooth sailing the rest of the way. Throughout the day, Phil Mickelson and Jason Day each made a run at the 34-year-old Floridian who had 46 missed cuts and only four top 10s in his previous 83 starts on the PGA Tour.
"I'm so happy right now to get it done today, especially against the world No. 1, playing with him today", Potter said. That changed when he tapped in for par on the 18th hole, and he choked back emotion of a week he won't soon forget. Potter's only other victory was at The Greenbrier Classic in 2012.

It was another disappointment for Johnson going into the final round. He now won five out of 12 times when he took at least a share of the 54-hole lead into the final round. That didn't last long, and the tone of the final round was set along the ocean holes on the front nine.

Potter is the second [1000.0] victor in three years at Pebble Beach and the 2017 runner-up, Kelly Kraft, was also matched at the maximum before the get-go so although the majority of Pebble winners are straight out of the top drawer, this is starting to look like a tournament where throwing a few pounds at a few outsiders before the off might produce a bit of fun. But he also had four bogeys on the final day. When he bogeyed the opening hole Sunday you could sense the experts nodding to themselves... there he goes out of the mix.
Potter Jr. needed to birdie one of his final three holes for a 59 at Monterey Peninsula, but he finished with twin bogeys to tie with Johnson at 14-under par.
