Rose Returns To Winner’s Circle – Todd, Wu Rise in Rankings
It took four years, but Justin Rose is a winner once more on the PGA TOUR.
In a rain-soaked outing at the iconic Pebble Beach Golf Links, it was the Englishman who weathered the field as play went into a Monday finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for the first time since 2019. With a one-hole lead at the resumption of play, Rose quickly got to work, carding birdies on three of the first five holes, before eventually finishing three ahead of the field at 18-under.
“I feel like I have been fortunate enough to win at some great venues, but Pebble's right up there,” Rose said. “Just that walk up 18 to sort of be able to build a bit of a lead to kind of enjoy it was a very special moment.”
With the victory, Rose becomes the first player from Europe to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in tournament history.

For the U.S. side, it was a strong showing for Brendon Todd & Brandon Wu, who finished T2 behind Rose – Wu’s second runner-up showing in his 48th career start, and the first for Todd in his career on TOUR.
The pair leapt in the Rankings accordingly, with Todd moving 69 spaces up from 88th to 19th, and Wu making his debut for the year at 22nd.
The top 12 meanwhile remained relatively unchanged, with Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele swapping spots this week, to 11th and 12th, respectively.
U.S. Team Captain Zach Johnson first announced the 2023 qualifying structure last year. Points in 2023 are awarded as follows:
