Wyndham Clark Wins Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Tournament Cut Short Due to Weather

Wyndham Clark emerged victorious at this year’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but not in the way he expected. The tournament was cut short due to weather and safety concerns, and Clark was declared the winner after the tournament officials decided not to move it to Monday. Clark was in the lead on Saturday, after shooting two eagles en route to a blistering 12-under 60 to break the existing course record by two strokes. He was supposed to enter the final round in a one-shot lead over Sweden’s Ludvig Åberg but was eventually declared the winner after the Pebble Beach officials abandoned plans to postpone the tournament until Monday. They released an official statement, explaining they made this decision after consultation with Monterey County emergency authorities, who have implemented a shelter-in-place order for the greater Pebble Beach community in the face of heavy storms. Despite not getting to play the final round, Clark said he already felt he won the tournament after getting a great reaction from the crowd on Saturday. “I think that was because I broke the course record. Everyone gave me a standing ovation. It honestly felt like the end of the tournament and that’s what made yesterday so unique and weird because I would have thought that it was Sunday,” he told the reporters.
