Wyndham Clark Wins the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Wyndham Clark has won the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, after a stormy weather forced the cancellation of the final round. Clark, who shot a course-record 60 in the third round, was declared the winner by one stroke over Ludvig Aberg of Sweden. Clark claimed his third PGA TOUR title and his first since the 2023 U.S. Open.


A Record-Breaking Performance


Clark, who started the third round six shots behind the leader, Aberg, went on a birdie spree at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Saturday. He made 12 birdies and no bogeys, setting a new course record and matching the lowest round in PGA TOUR history. He also tied the tournament record of 17-under 197, previously set by Phil Mickelson in 2007.


Clark’s 60 was the highlight of a low-scoring day, as several players took advantage of the calm conditions before the storm hit. Aberg, a 22-year-old amateur from Texas Tech, shot a 66 to stay in contention. Collin Morikawa, the world No. 1, also carded a 66 to move into a tie for third with Keegan Bradley, who had a 67. Patrick Cantlay, Justin Thomas, and Emiliano Grillo were among the other players who shot in the 60s.


A Stormy Finale


The final round, scheduled for Sunday, was postponed until Monday due to heavy rains and hurricane-force winds that battered the Monterey Peninsula. The PGA TOUR officials hoped to resume play on Monday morning, but the weather did not improve. After consulting with the meteorologists and the players, the officials decided to cancel the final round and declare Clark the winner based on the 54-hole scores.


Clark, who was staying at a hotel near the course, said he was ready to play on Monday, but he understood the decision to call off the round. He said he was thrilled to win the prestigious event, which he had watched as a kid. He also praised his amateur partner, Tom Kim, a Korean businessman, who helped him stay relaxed and focused during the tournament. Clark and Kim won the pro-am team competition by four shots over Bradley and Tom Brady, the retired NFL quarterback.


A Memorable Week


The 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was played as a Signature Event for the first time, with 80 professionals competing across four rounds on the Monterey Peninsula. The event also featured some of the most famous celebrities and athletes in the world, who paired with the professionals for the first two rounds. Some of the notable pro-am teams included Jordan Spieth and Chris Kempczinski, the McDonald’s CEO; Beau Hossler and Aaron Rodgers, the New York Jets quarterback; Matt Kuchar and Steve Young, the San Francisco 49ers Hall of Famer; and Maverick McNealy and Condoleezza Rice, the former Secretary of State.


The event also raised millions of dollars for local charities, thanks to the generous donations from the sponsors, the players, and the fans. The event supported various causes, such as education, health, environment, and community development. The event also honored the frontline workers and the first responders, who have been fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was a memorable week for Wyndham Clark, who etched his name in the history books with his record-breaking performance. It was also a memorable week for the fans, who witnessed some of the best golf and entertainment in the world. The event showcased the beauty and the challenge of Pebble Beach, one of the most iconic courses in the world. The event also demonstrated the spirit and the generosity of the golf community, who came together to support a worthy cause. The event was a celebration of golf, and a celebration of life.
