American Professional Football (NFL) star Aaron Rogers (USA) lifted the championship cup in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am amateur division of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour.
In the third round of the tournament held at Pebble Beach Golf Links (par 72) in Monterey, California, on the 6th, Rogers won with Ben Silverman (Canada) and 5 under par 67 strokes, with a final total of 26 under par 189 strokes. Former FedEx CEO Don Collerang, paired with Peter Malnati (USA), came second with 27 under par, 190 strokes, and former tennis player Mardi Fish, who teamed up with Charlie Hoffman (USA), ranked third with 23 under par, 192 strokes.
At the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, after the end of the third round, the final game will be held the next day after the cut is made to a tie for 60th in the pro and a tie for 25th in the amateur.
Rogers, who has been a Green Bay Packers quarterback since 2005 and won the Super Bowl and MVP in 2011, has a reputation as a great golf fanatic. In 2021, he paired with Bryson DiChambo (USA) and defeated Phil Mickelson (USA) and NFL star Tom Brady (USA) in the event competition’The Match’. After Green Bay failed to make the playoffs this season, Rodgers entered the tournament with a ‘Plan B’ and finally won the championship. 메이저사이트
Silverman, who played with the same team, recorded 1-over par for three days and missed the cut in the professional division, while Rogers won the amateur championship. Silverman praised him, saying, “When I recorded a double bogey, he had a par save.”
“This win is very important to me,” Rogers said. Winning the Pebble Beach Pro-Am was one of the bucket lists of my life.” He continued, “(NFL colleague) Josh Allen said that my win was in the 3rd round competition, so an asterisk (*) was attached, but that’s okay. The winning record will remain forever,” he said.
Soccer star Gareth Bale (Wales), who drew a lot of attention even before the tournament, tied for 16th place with Joseph Bramlitt (USA) with 16-under-par 199 strokes. Bale said, “I received a lot of compliments, but it was also a lot of pressure.”
In the professional division, Justin Rose (England), who finished the 3rd round as the leader, reduced 3 strokes by 1 eagle, 2 birdies, and 1 bogey until the 9th hole, and scored a 15 under par in the middle, tied for 2nd place with Brandon Todd (USA) and 2nd place.
