AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am R4

Nick Taylor wins amid 40mph gusts

February 06-09
Pebble Beach GL, Pebble Beach, California
$7,800,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 3


Nick Taylor had to battle both Phil Mickelson and the wind on his way to winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Mickelson was going for a record sixth title at Pebble, but Taylor had a five-shot lead at the turn.

But then the Canadian had to deal with the 40mph winds blowing through the Monterey Peninsula.


With his lead down to just two, Taylor chipped in for a birdie on the 15th and got another birdie on the 17th hole.

Taylor’s two-under 70 on Sunday left him on 19-under for the tournament, and a four-shot victory over Kevin Streelman.

Mickelson, who got within two shots with four holes to play, shot 74 and finished in third on 14-under.

The win – the second of his PGA career – gets Taylor into the Masters for the first time.

Ireland’s Seamus Power was tied for 38th place on two-under and England’s Luke Donald finished joint 55th on even.
