AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
Last weekend, Brooks Koepka, priced as high as 50-1, fired a final-round 65, including two Sunday eagles, to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open by one shot over Kyoung-Hoon Lee and Xander Schauffele. Schauffele fell to 0-for-4 in converting 54-hole leads in his PGA Tour career and now has 10 runner-up finishes since 2017, the most of any PGA Tour player.
Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson won the Saudi Invitational for the second time in three years, holding on for a two-stroke victory over perennial bridesmaid Tony Finau, now with nine runner-up finishes worldwide since 2017, and Justin Rose.
DJ was scheduled to return stateside and headline the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which he has won twice (2009 and 2010) and also finished twice as runner-up (2014 and 2018). However, the World No. 1 was a withdrawal late Monday night.
Patrick Cantlay (8-1) fired a 61 Sunday at PGA West three weeks ago to finish second at the American Express and now assumes the role of tournament favorite. Daniel Berger (14-1) disappointed last weekend in Phoenix with a missed cut but finished fifth at Pebble Beach last year. Paul Casey (16-1) finished runner-up here in 2019. He is playing a fourth straight week, including a victory two weeks ago at the Dubai Desert Classic.
