Wyndham Clark has been declared the winner of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am after stormy weather conditions forced the cancellation of the final round of the event.

The 30-year-old American hit a 12-under 60, a new Pebble Beach Golf Links course record to claim top spot at the end of the third round.

Clark and the rest of the players were informed that the final round would be postponed until Monday, however hours later, the PGA TOUR confirmed Clark as the winner, providing him his first triumph since the 2023 U.S. Open.

A statement by the PGA TOUR was released on Sunday evening which read: “The storm affecting the Monterey Peninsula throughout the day Sunday is forecast to continue into the early hours of Monday with very strong winds. Although conditions are forecast to improve through the morning Monday, after consultation with Monterey County emergency authorities, who have implemented a Shelter in Place order until early tomorrow morning for the greater Pebble Beach community, and out of an abundance of caution for the safety of all constituents, there will be no play on Monday. Therefore, in accordance with the PGA Tour Regulations the tournament results will be final through the conclusion of 54 holes.”

“It’s pretty surreal right now,” Clark said following confirmation of his victory.

“It’s maybe not the way you dream of winning.

“With that said, a lot of us yesterday had, not that we knew, but we definitely had this outside shot and thinking that maybe this is our last round.”

The next event on the PGA TOUR schedule is the WM Phoenix Open taking place between 8-11 February at TPC Scottsdale, Arizona.
