    Daniel Berger made an eagle on the final hole to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by two strokes this past Sunday.

    The 27-year-old enjoyed an emphatic final-round performance in California where he delivered a masterclass to come out on top.

    Berger shot a seven-under-par 65 to grab a clutch victory for a fourth PGA Tour triumph.

    The American started his day well with an eagle on the 2nd hole, followed by two birdies.

    A bogey on the 8th didn’t mess up his round and Berger continued at it after the turn with birdies on 10 and 14.

    He then delivered the grandstand finish by rolling in a long putt on 18 for an eagle to grab victory with a winning score of 18 under par.

    Maverick McNealy finished in second spot on 16 under, while Patrick Cantlay and Jordan Spieth secured T3 on 15 under.

    ‘One of the best finishing holes I’ve ever played, obviously, with everything that happened on Saturday, hitting that ball out of bounds, to step up there and hit a great drive and then one of the best 3-woods I’ve ever hit in my life and then to make that putt is just as good as it gets for me,’ Berger said after his round.

    ‘When I was hurt, I thought, man, I’m never going to be able to play golf again without being … without feeling like I was going to be hurt and not be able to do the things I know I needed to be able to do to prepare and play my best golf. I thought I didn’t really love the game until it was taken away from me for three or four months and then I was really sad.

    ‘I think I was a bit lucky to have the team of doctors that I had to really get me back to a 100%. Now it’s a non-issue. I never think about it. It never bothers me and it’s really something that I can put behind me in the past.’

    South Africa’s Braden Grace finished the week in T34 on five under par.
