Potter holds off big guns to win Pebble Beach title

12 February 2018

After flirting with a 59 on Saturday, Potter got off to another hot start in the fourth round, birdieing four of his first seven holes. After kicking off in 67-72-66, the ASU product began in solo 8th, four shy of co-leaders Potter, Jr., and Dustin Johnson. The Florida native closed it out in veteran fashion, making 11 straight pars to hold off the likes of Johnson, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson.

Potter finished at 17-under 270 for his second PGA Tour win, after his previous success in 2012. The injury required surgery and he has battled back since, earning his PGA Tour card via the Tour last season.

The win gets Potter a spot in the Masters this April, where he's made just one career appearance in 2013.

"My game is in pretty good form and I have a golf course I really like playing next week", he said. "Going back to the Masters, it'll definitely be another dream come true".

The world No 246 claimed the outright lead for the first time when Johnson found water off the fifth tee on his way to a bogey, before the pair exchanged two-putt birdies at the par-five sixth.

Rookie Josh Hart broke his streak of double-doubles but finished the game with 10 points, eight rebounds and five assists. The Lakers ended the first quarter on a 21-8 run that saw them end the game's first frame with a 30-27 lead.

"All in all, still a good week, you know, T-two I guess is not bad, but I would have liked to put a little bit more pressure on Ted today", Johnson said.

The Australian had an up and down Sunday round, but back-to-back birdies on the 15th and 16th moved him into a tie for second.

Reavie increased Potter's cushion when he bogeyed the par-five 14th to slip back alongside Troy Merritt, with Johnson rolling in from five feet at the 13th to make it a three-way tie for second.
