Off to his right was out-of-bounds markers below a row of hedges, where Berger hit his drive on Saturday that led to double bogey. Berger capped it off with an eagle putt for a 7-under 65 and a two-shot victory over Maverick McNealy. He started with a two-shot lead and was three shots behind after six holes, wasting the scoring stretch at Pebble Beach.
Late eagle from the fairway stakes Spieth to lead at Pebble
He shot 1-under 71 as he goes for a second victory at Pebble Beach in the last five years. A pedestrian round that included bogeys on two of the par 5s left Spieth two shots out of the lead with three holes to play. Spieth didn’t have to contend with what he predicted to be a “mean” day at Pebble Beach. The raging wind was more of a stiff breeze along the ocean holes that Pebble gets all the time. He made bogey on the easiest hole at Pebble Beach from the middle of the fairway on the par-5 second hole, coming up well short of the green, pitching short of the putting surface and missing a par putt from 5 feet.

It paid off Sunday when Kang closed with a 2-under 70 and held on for a one-shot victory over Celine Boutier in the LPGA Drive On Championship at Inverness, the first LPGA Tour event since February. I made sure I played golf as much as I did normally, not because I had to but because I wanted to, Kang said. The LPGA Tour stays in northeast Ohio next week for the Marathon Classic.
