Wyndham Clark Is The Highlight On Saturday At Pebble Beach

Wyndham Clark

Over the past few editions, Monterey Peninsula’s Pebble Beach’s Tournament Saturdays have been dominated by celebrities. Think Bing Crosby, Ray Romano, Bill Murray, and Jack Lemmon. The past week, however, has featured a stacked line-up of pros. It was the first time Pebble Beach appeared as a Signature event with a limited field. As such, with the celebrities staying away, this Saturday was all about Wyndham Clark and his historic chase.

Wyndham Clark’s Upward Trajectory Continues

Last summer, Wyndham Clark became the champion of the U.S. Open. That achievement solidified his position as one of the best in the sport. On Saturday, Clark had a magical day, one of those days that is hard to believe if no one was present to see it. Across 11 holes, Wyndham Clark was 10-under par. Finally, at the scenic 18th hole, he scored an eagle with his 26-footer. The final result was the PGA Tour’s 13th below-60 round in its entire history.

Wyndham Clark had tried his hand at a third eagle. However, that one drifted a little short and a little to the right. Nevertheless, as a consolation, he would post Pebble Beach’s lowest tournament score – 12-under 60. At the first green, Clark had managed only a par and was tied for 31st place. After the final green, Wyndham Clark sat at the lead with 3 shots. As such, this will be a great opportunity for Clark to win one more big title in California in only eight months.

After the round, Wyndham Clark said that it was surreal. He called the opportunity to shoot 59 using that putt, “special”. The 12-under 60 by Clark included three close misses during the final minutes of the round. The previous scoring mark of a tournament at Pebble Beach was 62.
