Larry Fitzgerald was all smiles Sunday after he and pro partner Kevin Streelman blew away the rest of the teams in the pro-am competition at Pebble Beach.
The Pebble Beach trophy is one of the most coveted prizes an amateur can take home.
It also reveals who the major sandbaggers are and it was obvious all week that Fitzgerald is not only an All-Pro wide receiver in the NFL, he’s an All-Pro sandbagger.
Fitzgerald came into the Pebble Beach Pro-Am toting a 13-handicap. When you watch his swing and look at the quality of his golf shots, looks like he should be somewhere around a five or less.
Add Fitzgerald’s extreme athleticism to that 13-handicap and you’ve got yourself a lethal on-course situation.
“Kevin carried me,” Fitzgerald tried to proclaim as he held the winner’s hardware. Seriously? The pair closed with a 12-under par in the final round to shoot FORTY-ONE HUNDER PAR for the 72 holes. Let’s say that again — 41 under par! The pair won by SEVEN shots.
They combined for a 12-under par 60 on Sunday alone. Let’s see, Streelman made just four front nine birdies and nine straight pars on the back nine which means Fitzgerald cut his partner by EIGHT SHOTS.
For the tournament, Streelman made 14 birdies overall and seven of those came the first round at Spyglass. That means Fitzgerald cut Streelman by at least 27 shots over the four rounds.
Busted, you’re totally busted Larry Fitzgerald.
If this guy’s coming to a pro-am near you — watch out.
