Rodgers earns Pro-am win at Pebble Beach
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers finally gets his name on the Wall of Champions behind the first tee at Pebble Beach, joining a long list that includes Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.
Justin Rose would love nothing better than to be on an adjacent plaque for winning the PGA Tour event at Pebble.
Rose, whose third round was suspended because of strong winds, returned Sunday morning at Monterey Peninsula by playing 10 holes in 6 under for a 65 that gave him a one-shot lead in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
The final round started Sunday afternoon, featuring only professionals, and the tournament will finish until Monday.
“It’s really significant,” Rodgers, 39, said. “It’s been on my bucket list.”
Rodgers and Silverman, who missed the professional cut, finished at 26 under, one shot ahead of Peter Malnati and Don Colleran, the retired president and CEO of FedEx.
