Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday, adding to his already great legacy
He already is a shoe-in for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald proved on Sunday he might have a career in another sport once he hangs it up for good. Golf.
The 14-year NFL veteran won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday. His previous high was a second place finish last year.
There isn’t much the man can’t do. The oft-traveling individual in the offseason first made a stop at Pebble beach in California. He was the best player in the pro-am over the weekend.
We shouldn’t be surprised though. Fitz is a great athlete. More importantly he is very competitive. He does not like to lose.
Fitz is the first athlete to win the pro-am portion of the tournament since former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino did it in 1988. Thirty years since someone in the world of sports took home the title. That is mind blowing.
Fitz’s final round finished at -12. Astounding for a guy that makes his living as a professional football players. Speaking of, we are still waiting for Fitz to make his decision whether he will return in 2018 or not. He is currently under contract.
Fitz was teamed with PGA pro Kevin Streelman over the weekend at Pebble Beach. Whatever coaching he got, it worked.
The amazing thing was that Streelman and Fitzgerald lead from start to finish. After coming close last year it is no surprise that Fitz came out guns blazing in this year’s tournament.
The 34-year old Fitzgerald mentioned last week at the Super Bowl that he would be making his decision on his football future sometime within the next week or two. Now, it has been one week. The countdown is on.
