American Professional Football (NFL) star Aaron Rogers (USA) won the amateur division of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Pro-Am Tournament.
The 3rd round of the PGA Tour AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was held at Pebble Beach Golf Links (par 72) in Pebble Beach, California on the 6th (Korean time). In this event, pros and amateurs compete in pairs to determine the ranking of amateurs. Professionals and amateurs play individually, and the better score is a team performance.
Rogers teamed up with Ben Silverman (Canada) and recorded a total of 26 under par 189 strokes over three days. Considering that Silverman recorded 1-over par for three days, Rogers contributed greatly to the championship. In an interview after the game, Rogers was delighted, saying, “Winning this event was one of my bucket list in my life.”

Former soccer player Gareth Bale (Wales), known as a ‘golf fanatic’, finished the tournament with a total of 16 under par and 199 strokes for 16th place. Bale, who played with Joseph Bramlett (USA), said, “I received a lot of praise, but it was also a lot of pressure.” 먹튀검증
Meanwhile, the event was disrupted due to bad weather. The amateur division, which was originally scheduled to cover the cut after three rounds, finished one day ahead of schedule. The professional players played the rest of the 3 rounds and entered the final round, but could not complete all schedules due to the sunset.
The current leader is Justin Rose (England), who started the match in the championship group. Rose cut 3 strokes on 9 holes to record an interim total of 15 under par. Peter Malnati, who played together in the championship group, Danny McCarthy with 3 holes left, and Brandon Todd (above USA) with 6 holes left tied for 2nd place with a total of 13 under par.
Kang Seong-hoon (36), who finished the game that day, tied for 28th with a total of 7 under par and 280 strokes. “Rookie” Kim Seong-hyeon (25) is tied for 33rd with a total of 6 under par with 2 holes left, and Ahn Byeong-hun (32) with 3 holes left is tied for 40th with a total of 5 under par.
