Vaughn Taylor, Gregg Ontiveros win 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Vaughn Taylor and Gregg Ontiveros are the winning team at the 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

With a team final round of 10-under 62 at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Taylor and Ontiveros finished at 30-under 259, good enough for a one-shot win over the team of Jonas Blixt and Jamie Williamson.

Peter Malnati and Donald Colleran finished in third place at 28 under par.

More importantly for Taylor, he won the professional competition with a 17-under total, good enough for a one-shot victory over Phil Mickelson, who missed a 5-foot birdie putt on the final hole to force a playoff. Taylor's 65 tied for the round of the day with Patrick Reed, who finished in a tie for sixth place with Justin Rose at 12 under par.

Jonas Blixt was third at 15 under par. Freddie Jacobson and Hiroshi Iwata tied for fourth at 14 under.

Taylor, who earns an invitation to the Masters near his alma mater Augusta State University, becomes the ninth player to win the professional tournament and pro-am competition in the same year.

Ontiveros is the chief executive officer of Group O, which handles marketing, supply chain management, packaging and business analytics services to top-tier clients likeĀ AT&T, Microsoft, PepsiCo, Best Buy, Caterpillar, John Deere, Staples and Michelin.


This is Ontiveros' second win in the pro-am portion of the event. He won it in 2012 with partner Brian Harman.\
