Journeyman Ted Potter Jr. Stuns Superstars at AT&T Pro-Am

After a month straight of playoff finishes, the AT&T Pro-AM dulled the Sunday evening dramatics. What it lacked in drama, it made up for with a great underdog story. With superstars Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, and the red-hot Chez Reavie all near the top of the leaderboard, it was career journeyman and 243rd world ranked golfer Ted Potter Jr. who held them all off in a stunning upset.

If you don’t know much about Ted Potter Jr. don’t feel bad, the majority of his competitors couldn’t pick him out of a crowd of barflies. Potter Jr. looks more like the guy you’d find at the 19th hole of your local public golf course, than a guy who just clinched a trip to the Masters while staring down the number one golfer in the world all day.

Even more impressively, he was able to win easily separating himself by three shots from the four runner-ups. Saturday was where the real surprise came as Potter was 11 – under through 15 holes at Monterey Peninsula. With a legitimate chance to shoot 59, he would bogey his final two holes and finish with a nine-under 62.

After a three-putt to start his round Sunday, it appeared one of the head-honchos would surpass him as he’d choke away his Sunday lead, but that never happened. He rebounded with four birdies through the next six holes to jump out to a comfortable lead, and he never gave it back. The conditions got tougher, colder, windier, but Potter Jr. gave nothing back, making par on his final 11 holes. While Dustin Johnson would blast his drives 50 yards past Potter all day, he proved distance isn’t everything as he got it done with solid iron-shots, a crafty short game, and clutch putting.  It was Potter’s second career PGA victory and his first on Tour since winning at Greenbrier in 2012.

2018 Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club Preview

From Pebble to Los Angeles, the Tour moves down the California Coast to Riviera Country Club for the Genesis Open (formerly the Northern Trust, Nissan Open, Los Angeles Open).

We’re back to regular individual stroke-play golf where there are no celebrities golfing alongside. There will be a good handful of celebrities within the golf world competing against each other, including the G.O.A.T when it comes to fame (for better or for worse) and golf, Tiger Woods. Tiger will play for the second time in 2018 this week. A good result here will really get the hype train going for.

The Euro Tour will send over some more star power with Alex Noren, Charl Schwartzel, Martin Kaymer, Tommy Fleetwood, Rafa Cabrera-Bello, Branden Grace, and Thomas Pieters playing this week

From the young guns section Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Daniel Berger, Bryson DeChambeau, Austin Cook, Cameron Smith, Ollie Schniederjans, and Beau Hossler will all be in attendance.

Then you have your accomplished Tour players in Phil Mickelson, Marc Leishman, Adam Scott, Matt Kuuuuuchar, Tony Finau, Charley Hoffman, Bill Haas, Pat Perez, JB Holmes, Bubba Watson, Johnny Vegas, Jimmy Walker, Shane Lowry, and the recently hot Chez Reavie and Kevin Streelman. Oh, and we can’t forget about our boy Ted Potter Jr.
