Daniel Berger came into the 18th- and final- hole on Sunday knowing that a birdie would hand him a win. Pebble Beach is a special place, and it was doable, but he had to fight off the demons of Saturday, a day in which he had made a double bogey on the very same hole. Fortunately for him, he played one of the best holes of golf in his entire life on Sunday, making light work of it by draining an eagle to win by two over Maverick McNealy at the prestigious, breathtaking course.
He found the fairway with his tee shot, then hit his second onto the green to leave a 30-footer for eagle. Two putts were required to win, but he drained the first for an eagle, seeing him complete a -7 65 in the fourth round. Overall, he finished at -18 for what was his fourth PGA Tour victory. Jordan Spieth, who led coming into the day, fell back and ended up finishing third, three shots back, along with Patrick Cantlay while Paul Casey and Nate Lashley completed the top five for the event that was unfortunately held without any amateurs this year.
