As the PGA Tour say "These guys are good" and on ANY given day ANY of them are good enough to win.  And so it proved for World No. 229 Nick Taylor who held off (among others)  five time Champ and playing partner Phil Micklesopn to claim the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

The Canadian held his nerve admirably as course conditions, benign all week, turned treacherous on the back nine Sunday.  The strong whipping winds and suddenly impossibly fast greens gobbled up the chasing Mickelson and spat him out in third while the ultra cautious Cali loving Kevin Streelman, a 100/1 shot pre tournament shot, climbed to second.
