PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Jordan Spieth knew what to expect long before he ever saw Tom Hoge play golf.

Hoge had shown him how to play craps in 2015 during the John Deere Classic, and what Spieth took away from that evening was Hoge was not the kind of player who would back down when the stakes were high.

They were plenty high Sunday in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am as Hoge, one of seven players who had at least a share of the lead in the final round, had another chance to win for the first time on the PGA Tour.

At his side was Patrick Cantlay, the reigning FedEx Cup champion and No. 4 player in the Official World Golf Ranking.
