Congratulations to Vaughn Taylor for winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Some important stat takeaways from his win:
(Only on Pebble Beach course, his first and fourth rounds):
Ranked T2 in Greens in Regulation
Ranked 3rd in Approach shot distance from Pin
Cumulatively gained 7.367 and 5.183 strokes Tee-to-green in rounds one and four respectively.
Gained 1.92 strokes putting in his final round, sinking a close to 29 footer on the 16th hole finishing one stroke better than runner-up Phil Mickelson.
Could you have predicted him winning? Probably not. Although he is ranked 31st in strokes gained tee-to-green and 15th in driving accuracy percentage in his past 15 events prior to this tournament.
Check back in a couple days for my detailed analysis on the Northern Trust Open. I'm going to bring out all the guns on this one*.
*Since I came in second place in a single entry tournament: only one good pick away from winning a trip to Las Vegas for Tiger Jam. So sad :( Lost out because of Phil Mickelson's runner up finish.
I had R. Castro / B. Haas / J. Walker / D. Lee / W. Wilcox / P. Reed as my lineup.
