Former University of Washington golfer Nick Taylor made the rights shots at the right time and won for the second time in his PGA Tour career, when he held on to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Taylor, a Canadian, played in the final group with Phil Mickelson and shot a final-round 70 to finish at 19 under and win the $1.4 million first-place check. Taylor led from start to finish after opening with a 63 at Monterey Peninsula Golf Club.

Taylor earned a two-year PGA Tour exemption and invitation to the 2020 Masters.
