Pebble Beach site to shine foe the 118th US Amatuer

It is hard to pick a place to play in a golf tourney then Pebble Beach. The country's oldest golf championship will turn into fantasy land for who ever wins it.

The champion gets a spot in next year's US Open, at Pebble Beach. The 2018 US Amatuer will be in some ways a test run for next year's US Open. Look for the fairways to be narrow, the greens fast and the rough thick.

Whoever wins this one will earn that return trip to the beautiful Monterey Peninsula next June. More click here

Heading into the final round Sunday The last name anybody was paying attention to was the one in first place.

With the Likes of Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson, all just three strokes off the lead, who knew Ted Potter Jr. would be the one taking home his second PGA Tour title.

After losing a shot on the first hole Sunday to Johnson Potter Jr. took control over the next six holes to move three strokes ahead on the strength of four birdies.

And there he would stay. Three strokes ahead of Day, World #1 Johnson and Phil who made the biggest push of the day with a final round of 65. Phil's chances ended when he found a bunker on his second shot that fell just short of the 18th green.

It cost him a chance at an Eagle which would have left him a shot behind Potter Jr. It would not have mattered. After sinking a birdies putt on seven Ted played even par the rest of the course to come home with a four day total of 270.

Chad Reavie threw his hat into the ring with a hot front nine (5-birdies) and ended up sharing second with Johnson, Day and Mickelson.
