Pebble Beach Final: Daniel Berger Eagles 18th to Win

15-Feb-2021

PGA TOUR 2021 - AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Final 


Daniel Berger Wins With Eagle on 18th, for 4th Tour Title


From the Daily Wrap-up:

[Berger] was tied for the lead, needing a birdie on the par-5 18th to win. Off to his right was out-of-bounds markers below a row of hedges, where Berger hit his drive on Saturday that led to double bogey. To his left was the Pacific Ocean.

"I was going to go down swinging," he said.

Two of the best swings of his career, a driver into the fairway and a 3-wood from 250 yards away in the cool air at sea level, left him 30 feet and two putts away. Berger capped it off with an eagle putt for a 7-under 65 and a two-shot victory over Maverick McNealy.

"To step up there and hit a great drive and then one of the best 3-woods I've ever hit in my life, and then to make that putt is just as good as it gets for me," Berger said.

He finished at 18-under 270 for his fourth career PGA TOUR victory.  Read more here

Berger's response to his win, via Golfweek:

“I feel like I got a little bit of revenge on the 18th,” said Berger, who won the Charles Schwab Challenge in June when the PGA Tour returned after a 13-week break due to COVID-19. “I knew it was going to be a tight finish and I just stepped up there and hit a great drive and hit maybe the best 3-wood I’ve ever hit in my life and the putter was just kind of icing on the cake.

“It’s so hard to win out here. I feel like everything has to come together to win and I was able to do that this week. I’m just trying to get better in every aspect of my game and I feel like I’ve accomplished that, and I’ve set some really high goals and I feel like I’m not scared to put in the work. I’m not the most talented guy out here.

“I don’t hit it the furthest, but I’ll outwork anybody.”
