jordan spieth put on a clinic showing how to play conservative golf with a huge lead, and went on to breeze to a four-shot victory in the AT&T pebble beach pro-Am. The 23-year-old native of Dallas, TX, headed into the final round owning a formidable six-shot lead over former champion Brandt Snedeker. Spieth played it cool throughout the round as he kept out of trouble by hitting fairways and greens to shoot a pedestrian 2-under 70 for a 19-under 268 total that was more than enough to maintain his lead over Kelly Kraft of the U.S. Kraft closed in on the solo second spot after carding a final round score of 5-under 67 to finish at 15-under 272.

Fellow American and 2016 Player of the Year Dustin Johnson came in third by himself after shooting a fourth-round total of 4-under 68 for a 14-under 273 score for the tournament.

Woodland shot was the day's best round

Snedeker could only muster a 2-under 70 total as he slipped into solo fourth place. Spieth made two birdies at holes No. 2 and No. 17 and no bogeys during his round. The rest of his scorecard was covered in stress-free pars as he cruised to his ninth career championship. Big hitting Gary Woodland of the U.S. pounded his way around the iconic Pebble Beach track to tally up the best round of the day by making 10 birdies to go along with three bogeys for a closing 7-under 65 total. He ended up T4 with Jason Day of Australia, the world’s top ranked player, and Spain’s John Rahm who won the Farmers Insurance Open two weeks ago at Torrey Pines, and last week came home T16 in the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Oppenheim got in on sponsor's exemption

Seung-Yul Noh of South Korea and the event’s feel-good story of the week, Rob Oppenheim, of the U.S. were next best at T8 with 9-under 278 scores. Oppenheim got into the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am field on a sponsor’s exemption after he came up short by $392 of retaining his PGA Tour card. His top-10 performance earned him a place in next week’s Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club.
