Dustin Johnson Is King at Pebble Beach
Filed under: PGA
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Dustin Johnson rolled in a 3 ½-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole Sunday to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am — and disappointed a lot of people.
No offense to Johnson, a 25-year-old hot, young talent who, by defending the tournament title, became the first newcomer since Tiger Woods to win in each of his first three PGA Tour seasons, but he ruined an awfully good story.
One shot back of the winner, waiting for a chance to be part of a three-way playoff if Johnson’s final putt did not fall, was David Duval, the people’s choice, a sentimental favorite hoping to reestablish a career.
He didn’t get the chance. Johnson, who began the day 18 under and tied with co-leader Paul Goydos, shot 74, but on a wind-beaten day when only seven players broke 70, it was just enough to hold off Duval’s 69 and J.B. Holmes with 71.
“Well, I’m feeling really good right now,” Johnson said.
