Tom Hoge Surges Past Spieth at Pebble for 1st PGA Tour Win
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — After 202 starts on the PGA Tour, Tom Hoge is finally a winner. Hoge emerged from a wild battle in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am that featured seven players who had a share of the lead during the final round. His final hurdle was a big one. He had to track down Jordan Spieth. Hoge nearly holed a fairway shot on the 16th for a tap-in birdie. Then he made a 20-foot birdie putt on the par-3 17th. That was right after Spieth made bogey on the 17th from a bunker. Hoge shot 68 to win by two over Spieth.
