Jordan Spieth took a page out of the old Tiger Woods playbook: Crush the field Thursday through Saturday and make them weep on Sunday. Spieth hit fairways and greens like a robot on Sunday, and he forced a field that trailed him by six to come touch him.
Spieth shot a 2-under 70 on Sunday to finish at 19 under on the week and round out his ninth career PGA Tour victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He beat runner-up Kelly Kraft by four.
Spieth had 13 one-putts on Saturday and gained over four strokes on the rest of the field on the greens on the weekend alone.
After a 70-72-69-33 start, Phil Mickelson could not have ejected any harder down the stretch. Lefty shot a 44 on the back nine on Sunday that included a double and quadruple bogey for a 77 overall on Sunday. He ended up finishing last out of all 65 golfers that made the Saturday cut. He confirmed what we all believe about Mickelson. He won't always win, and he won't always play well. But he'll always be interesting.
Dustin Johnson had maybe the quietest third-place finish he has ever had. He actually out-played Spieth on the weekend (10 under to 9 under), but Spieth had already built a commanding enough lead that it didn't matter.
Jason Day co-led the field in birdies with 23, but a disastrous 75 on Saturday was his ultimate undoing. Still, the rest of it was impressive.
