PGA Tour cancels final round of AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and crowns Wyndham Clark winner-see fans reaction
PGA Tour cancels final round of AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am event due to stormy weather alert. Weather conditions were expected to improve by Monday, but, the storm lingered into Monday morning. Monterey County emergency officials urged residents to stay inside as wind and rain rages on.
The Tour announced Wyndham Clark as the winner of the Pro-Am event after it was confirmed that the game would not be continued any further. The event was shortened to 54-hole as Clark held his one-shot lead, carding a course record of 12-under 60 on Saturday.
Fans online were unhappy with the Tour’s decision as many slammed them on social platforms. One X user noted, “This is f***ed, you knew the weather all week. To end an elevated event like this is embarrassing.” Another slammed Clark saying, “He would’ve chocked if they didn’t cut it short fyi.”
Clark had a one-shot lead over Ludvig Aberg as he bagged his 3rd PGA Tour title. Many fans questioned if the shortened event would grant Clark OWGR points, but there’s no mention of it as of now. Clark pocketed $3.6 million in all three of his wins so far. Apart from the latest event, he won the Wells Fargo Championship and U.S. Open last year.
