Arnie never won at Pebble Beach, but he left his mark.
Arnold Palmer never won a championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links. In typical ‘The King’ style, though, he still left his mark.
Nick Moore went back-to-back and got closer to earning back-to-back NCGA Player of the Year honors.
Englishman Paul Broadhurst, in his first visit to Pebble Beach, led the tournament after the first round, was second after 36 holes, and led for much of the final round. A rough patch on holes 11 through 14, part of Pebble’s less-heralded inland stretch, dropped the 2016 Senior Open Championship winner out of the lead, recovering with a birdie at 15 to tie with Florida’s Joe Durant. Champions Tour money leader Bernhard Langer started the day four back, but a 6-under 66 final round, culminating in a kick-in birdie putt on the 18th green, tied him with Broadhurst and Durant as the tournament wound down.
Player of the Year titles are on the line at Morgan Creek.
