Making an eagle putt on the final hole, Ken Tanigawa walked off the 18th green at Pebble Beach Golf Links with his first PGA TOUR Champions victory. A 2018 “rookie” on the tour who never played on the PGA TOUR, Tanigawa edged tour veterans Kirk Triplett and Marco Dawson by one shot.

Tour pro Kevin Sutherland and his nephew Matthew Sutherland (son of former tour pro David Sutherland) survived a three-way scorecard playoff at 16-under-par 199 to become the first “family team” in tournament history to capture the pro-junior championship. Also finishing at 16-under were Caroline Wales with pro Stephen Ames, and Yena Jang with pro Duffy Waldorf.

Tournament Winner: Bernhard Langer

Score: 198

Holes: 54

Langer shattered the tournament scoring records with a winning total of 198, 17-under par, for his first career victory at Pebble Beach.

2017 Pro-Junior Team Winner

Tournament Winner: Bernhard Langer & Justin Potwora

Score: 194

Holes: 54

Langer and Potwora, 17, of Eugene Ore., representing The First Tee of Greater Portland, finished at 194, 21-under-par, to win by two shots.
