Wyndham Clark wrote his name in the record books at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am with a sensational round of 12-under 60, becoming the first player in the tournament’s 105-year history to achieve this feat. The defending champion showcased an exceptional performance on Saturday, setting a new course record at the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Clark had a scorching start on the front nine, carding an incredible 28 with two eagles and four birdies. His red-hot form continued on the back nine, as he birdied the 10th and 11th holes, reaching 10-under par for the day.
However, he encountered a moment of trouble on the 12th hole when his tee shot found the frontside bunker. After a chip from an awkward lie that went astray, Clark faced a challenging situation. Yet, he exhibited his resilience by sinking a remarkable 25-footer from the fringe to salvage a bogey and limit the damage.
Undeterred by the setback, Clark quickly bounced back with consecutive birdies before settling for pars on the next three holes. He stood at 56-under through 17 holes, with his birdie putts on the 16th and 17th narrowly missing the mark by a combined inch.
Heading to the final hole, Clark needed a birdie to break the course record of 61 and an eagle for a historic 59. He displayed nerves of steel, reaching the green in two shots and setting up a 26½-foot birdie putt. Unfortunately, his attempt fell just short, denying him a chance at a sub-60 round.
Despite narrowly missing out on the magical score, Clark’s round of 60 broke the tournament scoring record at Pebble Beach, which was previously held by Tom Kite, David Duval, Patrick Cantlay, and Matthias Schwab at 62. His remarkable performance also surpassed the overall course record of 61 set by Hurly Long during a collegiate event in 2017.
Wyndham Clark’s exceptional putting played a crucial role in his historic round. Switching from a conventional grip to cross-handed, he sank nearly 190 feet of putts, including multiple lengthy ones of over 25 feet. This stellar putting exhibition marked the best putting day of his career.
The 30-year-old Clark, who won the U.S. Open last year, will enter the final round of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am with a three-shot lead at 17-under 199, giving him a great opportunity to add another significant title to his trophy cabinet.
