Jordan Spieth closed with a final-round 70 to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by four shots over fellow Dallas resident Kelly Kraft.
The week was highlighted by a strong putting performance from Spieth, who pulled away from the field during the third round with a 65 that featured 23 putts, including 13 holes where he only needed one stroke on Pebble Beach's notoriously tricky putting surface.
"I couldn't have asked for a better putting day," said Spieth. "With greens that are poa annua and have a lot of traffic because they have been so soft with this weather, it's very difficult even to make a putt from 4 feet, the percentages, it's another 10, 15 percent probably less than average. So I'm certainly grateful of that."
Spieth, who finished fourth in strokes gained: putting (plus 4.249), once again relied on a Scotty Cameron 009 prototype putter to notch his ninth TOUR title.
The 350-gram putter has 4 degrees of loft and a lie angle of 71 degrees. The head has an oil can finish that's since worn off and rusted over time to produce a well-worn look.
"The 009 was my favorite putter [as a junior golfer]" Spieth said of the putter. "Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy, two of my favorite golfers, used it, and that got me. I've been using it since I was 15, and I won't be changing anytime soon."
As you'd expect with a putter used by one of the best golfers in the world, there are a few subtle differences between Spieth's 009 and the retail Scotty Cameron Newport — namely a flatter, thicker topline, wider body from front to back and soft, rounded edges.
