Wyndham Clark wins 54-hole Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Wyndham Clark won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on strength of historic 60 in his third round at the 54-hole tournament shortened due to rain storms on the Pacific coast.

PEBBLE BEACH, California – The 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is one of eight Signature Events on this year’s PGA TOUR schedule. This year’s field of 80 players featured 49 of the top 50 finishers on last season’s FedEx Cup points list, along with the 2023-2024 Tournament winners.

Teeing it up this week was Nick Dunlap, who turned pro following his win as an amateur at the American Express tournament two weeks ago. This week’s “No Cut” Signature Event guaranteed a total purse of $20 million with the winner’s share of $3.6 million and 700 FedExCup points.

Instead of a three-course rotation that included Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course, this years AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was confined to the Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill courses. Eighty amateurs, including Tom Brady and Josh Allen, competed for only for two days before a pro-am team was crowned.


The 18-hole “Pebble Beach” course at the Pebble Beach Golf Links features 6,828 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 74.3 and it has a slope rating of 144. Designed by Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, the Pebble Beach golf course opened in 1918. It was extensively revised in 1928 by H. Chandler Egan.

Spyglass Hill is the hardest course in the Pebble Beach Resort trio. Its par-72 layout measures just short of 7,000 yards with a course rating of 75.4 and a slope rating of 145.The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and opened 58 years ago on March 11, 1966. The PGA TOUR consistently lists Spyglass Hill’s holes 6, 8 and 16 among the toughest on the TOUR.


The rotation of the courses this week, had everyone playing the Spyglass Hill course once during the first two rounds with the final two rounds being played on the Pebble Beach course.

Belgium’s Thomas Detry 9- under (63) at Spyglass Hill put himself back were he spent most of last week at Torrey Pines, around the top of the leaderboard. With typical Monterey Peninsula’s January weather making a tough Spyglass Hill course play even tougher, Detry managed to grab the lead when his approach shot on 18 ended up in the right rough, but he managed to chip it in for his 10th birdie of the round.

Patrick Cantlay, 8- under (64), who was also playing the Spyglass Hill course, found himself in 2nd place a shot behind. Playing one of the most solid rounds of the day, he had eight birdies and no bogeys.

Last week’s Torrey Pines winner Matthieu Pavon, playing the Pebble Beach Course, finished in 3rd place at 7- under (65), two back. Pavon, is certainly no stranger to the top of the leaderboard as he also spent three days there last week including taking home the $1.64 million winners share, a surfboard, and 500 FedEx points.  Along with automatic entrance into the remaining Signature Events this season.

Rory McIlroy-1 under (71) playing the Spyglass Hills course, was at one point today 5-under par on the back nine before he started to struggle after making bogeys on the 6th and 8th holes while sandwiching a triple bogey between them on the par 5, 7th hole, after receiving a two strokes penalty for an improper drop (he started his day on the 10th hole), going from 5-under to 1-under on his back nine.


It was only a matter of time before Scottie Scheffler –11 (69 64) decided enough was enough. Sitting in 15th place at –3 under after the first round, just wasn’t going to satisfy the #1 ranked golfer in the world for long. His 8-under par 64 on the Pebble Beach Course today found him sharing a 1st place tie with Ludvig Aberg –11(68 65) and Thomas Detry –11(63 70).

Thomas Detry over the past week and a half, has moved himself from virtual obscurity to a permanent fixture at the top of the leaderboard. This is the second straight week he heads into the weekend in contention.

Ludvig Aberg (Sweden) second round showed exactly why we haven’t heard the last from him this weekend. An opening hole birdie from over 40 feet and a putt from off the green for eagle on the next hole followed by four more birdies across his final 16 holes, shows why he’s a force to be reckoned with.

The rest of today’s top 10 on the leaderboard are 4th place Patrick Cantlay (-10). Tied for 5th place Justin Thomas, Emiliano Grillo, Matthieu Pavon (-9). Tied for 8th place Keegan Bradley, Beau Hossler (-8) and tied for 10th place Collin Morikawa, Tom Hoge, Matt Fitzpatrick, Si Woo Kim, Peter Malnati, Sam Burns (-7). Defending Champion Justin Rose -6 (68 71) is currently tied for 20th with 11 other golfers.

Rory McIlroy and partner Jeff Rhodes, a 9-handicap and the co-managing partner of TPG Capital, won the pro-am portion of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The two finished 36 holes at 17 under par, one clear of three other teams.


The 2023 U.S. Open Champion, Wyndham Clark -17 (72 67 60) put one in the record books today with an unforgettable round on the Pebble Beach Course where he was able to overcome both Mother Nature, and a saturated golf course, to grab himself the course record with a 12-under 60.

His 60 surpasses, by 2 shots, the tournament’s record held by four players, and by one shot the course record held by Hurly Long of Germany when he played the Carmel Cup in 2017 with Texas Tech. The PGA Tour always counts records when players are able to lift, clean and place their golf balls in the short grass.

Clark finished ahead of both Ludvig Aberg -16 (68 65 67) who missed a long eagle putt on the par-5 18th hole and Matthieu Pavon -15 (65 70 66), who has once again positioned himself near the top of the leaderboard, heading into a final round.

Mark Hubbard -14 (69 68 65) along with Thomas Detry-14 (63 70 69), whose 1st round score of 63 left him in sole possession of first place, find themselves just 3 strokes off the lead heading into tomorrow’s final round.

Sitting in 6th place is the world’s top golfer Scottie Scheffler -13 (69 64 70), Justin Thomas -13 (67 68 68) who’s looking for his first victory since the 2022 PGA Championship, Tom Hoge-13 (71,66,66) and Jason Day -13 (69 71 63). Day rose 28 places after a nine-under 63, which contained eight birdies, an eagle and a sole bogey. It was the second lowest score of the day.


Organizers pushed the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am final round to Monday after severe weather in and around the Monterey Peninsula brought torrential rains and strong winds making the course unplayable. Wyndham Clark-17 leads by one stroke over Ludvig Åberg -16 after a course-record 60 during Saturday’s third round; Matthieu Pavon -15 is in third place two shots back.

The weather delay means it is the third time in six years that the tournament has gone to a fifth day, with Phil Mickelson’s three-shot victory over Paul Casey in 2019 and Justin Rose’s win last year both finishing on a Monday.

After consultation with local government safety officials, the PGA TOUR has cancelled the final round of the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am rescheduled for Monday meaning Wyndham Clark -17 is declared “The Champion” with the tournament reduced to 54 holes.

30-year-old Wyndham Clark -17(72 67 60) added the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to his resume as he picks up the $3.6 million winners share along with 550 FedEx Cup points. This is Wyndham’s third PGA Championship to go along with the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship and 2023 U.S. Open. His Career Winnings are now at $19,454,055.

Wyndham didn’t get to pose with the trophy on the 18th green, but he felt he received the winner’s share of congratulations after his record setting round on Saturday.

“Everyone was celebrating and congratulating me,” Clark said. “I even said to myself, ‘This feels like I just won the tournament,’ and yet we had another round to play. Today, waking up and they cancel the day, you’re trying not to go too far in the future. I get a call that we’re going to cancel and you’re the winner.“It’s pretty surreal right now.”

Sweden’s Ludvig Aberg -16 (68 65 67) finishes in sole possession of 2nd place with a $2.16 million check and 315 FedEx Cup Points. He previously won the 2023 RSM Classic, moving his current Career Winnings to $5,647,995.

Matthieu Pavon -15 (65 70 66) takes the 3rd spot in this week’s tournament after coming off his first PGA TOUR victory at the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open last weekend at Torrey Pines. He picks up a check for $1.36 million and 200 FedEx Cup points. After just two weeks, he has $3,421,181 now sitting nicely in his Career Earnings account.
