Spi­eth breezes to big win at Peb­ble Beach

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

PEB­BLE BEACH, Calif. - Jor­dan Spi­eth kept it sim­ple Sun­day and won the AT&T Peb­ble Beach Pro-Am for the ninth PGA Tour ti­tle of his young ca­reer. Spi­eth started with a six-shot lead and no one got closer than three shots. He putted for birdie on all but one hole and closed with a 2-un­der 70 for a four-shot vic­tory over for­mer U.S. Am­a­teur cham­pion Kelly Kraft, who shot 67. The scenery was as spec­tac­u­lar as it gets on the Mon­terey Penin­sula. The fi­nal round was on the dull side, and that was just fine with Spi­eth. The 23-year-old Texan ran off 14 straight pars un­til a 30-foot birdie on the par-3 17th that made for a stress-free walk up the 18th. Spi­eth played the fi­nal 28 holes with­out a bo­gey.
