Jordan Spieth
Following two consecutive 7-under 65s, Jordan Spieth carded a final-round 2-under 70 to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by four strokes over Kelly Kraft.

Spieth collects his ninth PGA TOUR victory in his 108th PGA TOUR start (100th as a professional on TOUR) at the age of 23 years, six months and 16 days.

By collecting 500 points, Spieth moves from No. 16 to No. 3 in the FedExCup standings. In 2015, Spieth became the youngest winner of the FedExCup and of the TOUR Championship (22 years, 2 months).

Youngest to win nine times on PGA TOUR since World War II:
Tiger Woods (23 years, 5 months, 7 days) – 1999 Memorial
Jordan Spieth (23 years, 6 months, 16 days) – 2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
Jack Nicklaus (24 years, 19 days) – 1964 Waste Management Phoenix Open

Spieth’s Career PGA TOUR Victories (9):
2013 – John Deere Classic
2015 – Valspar Championship, Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, John Deere Classic, TOUR Championship
2016 – SBS Tournament of Champions, DEAN & DELUCA Invitational
2017 – AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Spieth becomes the second youngest winner of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am:
John Cook (1981)        23 years, 4 months
Jordan Spieth (2017)    23 years, 6 months, 16 days
Tiger Woods (2000)      24 years, 1 month, 7 days
Dustin Johnson (2009)   24 years, 7 months, 24 days

Spieth is the seventh player in his 20s to win on TOUR this season (10 wins), compared to one win by a player in his 30s (Brendan Steele) and two by players in their 40s (Rod Pampling, Pat Perez).

Spieth’s 72-hole total of 268 falls three shy of Brandt Snedeker’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am record of 265 (2015). In addition, he remains No. 6 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Spieth’s four-stroke victory falls one shy of the tournament record for largest margin of victory, set by six players and most recently Phil Mickelson in 2007.

The AT&T sponsored athlete wins in his fifth start in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am where he has finished inside the top 25 in every start: Won-2017, T21-2016, T7-2015, T4-2014 and T22-2013.

Spieth has top-10 finishes in all four starts on the PGA TOUR this season: SBS Tournament of Champions (T3), Sony Open in Hawaii (3), Waste Management Phoenix Open (T9) and AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (Won). He has yet to post an over-par score.

With his win, Spieth extends the stretch of American-born players to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to 13. The last international winner of the event was Vijay Singh in 2004.

Third-Round Lead Notes
Since 2000, the 54-hole leader/co-leader has gone on to win 10 times, including four of the last five winners:
Jordan Spieth (2017), Brandt Snedeker (2013, 2015), Jimmy Walker (2014), Dustin Johnson (2010), Phil Mickelson (2005, 2007).

Through 13 events in the 2016-17 PGA TOUR season, five players have converted a 54-hole lead/co-lead into victory. Spieth’s victory is the first since Justin Thomas did so at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Kelly Kraft
Kelly Kraft finished solo second (four behind champion Jordan Spieth) in his 41st PGA TOUR start, topping his previous best finish on TOUR – a T5 at the 2016 John Deere Classic. With the top-10 finish, he earns a spot in next week’s Genesis Open.

Kraft made his third-career start in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week (2-2017, T70-2016, T40-2013).

Prior to Sunday, T21 at The RSM Classic marked Kraft’s best finish on TOUR this season. In his four made cuts this season, he owns four final-round scores in the 60s, including this week’s 67. He has moved all the way up to No. 20 in the FedExCup standings.

Kraft is a prior winner on the Web.com Tour, winning the 2015 Chitimacha Louisiana Open.

Dustin Johnson
A two-time winner of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (2009, 2010), Dustin Johnson posted a final-round 4-under 68 to finish solo third, five strokes behind Jordan Spieth. Johnson now sits No. 33 in the FedExCup.

Johnson is still in search of his 13th win on the PGA TOUR, having won at least once in the last nine seasons, the longest current streak on TOUR. Only five other players have more consecutive years with a victory to start their career than Johnson: Arnold Palmer (17), Jack Nicklaus (17), Tiger Woods (14), Cary Middlecoff (10), Horton Smith (10), Dustin Johnson (9) and Sam Snead (9).

Through four starts this season, the 2016 PGA TOUR Player of the Year now has two top-10 finishes this season – a T6 at the SBS Tournament of Champions and a third-place effort this week at Pebble Beach.

Brandt Snedeker
In search of his ninth PGA TOUR title (and fifth on the west coast), Brandt Snedeker finished solo fourth at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, six shots behind Jordan Spieth.

Snedeker, like third-place finisher Dustin Johnson, was seeking to become the fifth player with at least three wins in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am:
5 wins – Mark O’Meara (1985, 1989, 1990, 1992, 1997)
4 wins – Phil Mickelson (1998, 2005, 2007, 2012)
3 wins – Jack Nicklaus (1967, 1972, 1973), Johnny Miller (1974, 1987, 1994)

Additional Player Notes
Gary Woodland had a career-best 10 birdies Sunday en route to a 7-under 65, finishing T5. He missed the cut in his only other starts at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (2009, 2011).

World No. 1 Jason Day bounced back from a 75 at Pebble Beach GL Saturday with a final-round 5-under 67 to finish T5. It marks his sixth top-15 finish in eight starts at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, led by a T4 in 2015.

Seeking his second win in his last three starts, 2017 Farmers Insurance Open champion Jon Rahm finished T5 for his second top-10 finish of the season. Rahm currently sits sixth in the FedExCup.

Rob Oppenheim finished T8 in his attempt to become the first player to win on a sponsor’s exemption since Billy Hurley III at the 2016 Quicken Loans National. Oppenheim missed out on his TOUR card for the 2016-17 season by $392 when the Web.com Tour Championship was canceled due to Hurricane Matthew that hit Florida in early October. With his finish Sunday, he earns a spot in next week’s Genesis Open.

Like Kelly Kraft and Rob Oppenheim, Cameron Percy’s T10 finish earns him a spot in next week’s Genesis Open. This week marked Percy’s first top-10 finish in six career starts at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
