Potter outplays Johnson and wins Pebble Beach

Ted Potter Jr kept his cool as he outplayed a slew of top golfers to win the Pebble Beach Pro-Am by three shots in California, US, yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Potter, who didn't hold full PGA Tour status until his victory, posted a three-under 69 during the final round to pull ahead of playing partner Dustin Johnson and the chasing pack.

My lay book prior to the final day's play in Perth is detailed in the In-Play Blog and given Aphibarnrat was my biggest loser that was never going to be a great result.

Reinforcing his return to form, Day followed his recent victory at Torrey Pines with a tie for second behind victor Ted Potter Jr. that lifts him two places to world No.8.

"It's definitely pleasing", an emotional Potter told CBS Sports moments after tapping in for par on the final hole. He hit two bad shots on No. 4 and No. 5, one that cost him an easy chance at birdie, the other that made him work for a good bogey.

Mickelson began his move late with three birdies in a four-hole stretch ended at the par-3 17th.

Sea Of Thieves Beta Returns This Weekend (Kind Of)
This scale test's goal is to try out the work that has been done on the game since the popular beta ended in January. As such, expect to run into issues with joining games, sessions being interrupted, and using the in-game shops.

The American, who was going for his second straight win having won by eight strokes at the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii last month to start the season, closed with four birdies.

Plus, because of 25 pro-am teams making the cut to play Sunday, the draw can get a little out of whack.

"I let the greens yesterday get into my head and it was hard to get out of that mindset".

Yet again, the World Super 6 Perth has been nearly universally well-received with the vast majority of golf fans really enjoying the quick-fire nature of the event but I won't be getting too involved from a betting perspective next year. Day finished sixth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: putting in the 2014-15 season and first in the stat in 2015-16. I theorised that they might be disadvantaged against opposition that had already played a tie but that doesn't appear the case. He promptly bogeyed the first hole to fall a shot behind Johnson. In Potter's case, the final leaderboard can make it even better.

You obviously don't get to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking without a solid all-around game. "Just keeping grinding. I don't know what to say".

Johnson is hoping to defend his title next week when the tour travels to Los Angeles for the Genesis Open at the Riviera Country Club."My game is in pretty good form and I have a golf course I really like playing next week", he said.
