Best Pictures From Pebble Beach Final Round

It was a Cinderella story at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament as world number 447 Vaughn Taylor was the unexpected winner.

Taylor hit a superb final round of 65 that included four straight birdies from the 13th.

“It’s been a long time. I didn’t think it was going to happen,” Taylor said.

“I worked so hard. I kept getting knocked down, knocked down. I’m just at a loss for words.”

There was also drama as Phil Mickelson – who had held a two-shot lead going into the final round – could not force a play-off as his 5-footer on the final green lipped out.

“It never crossed my mind that one on 18 wouldn’t go in,” Mickelson said.

Nonetheless, Vaughn Taylor’s victory was a fitting way to end a tournament full of colour, celebrity fun and wonderful stroke play.

Here are few of the best images from Pebble Beach below.
