Tom Shadbolt followed in the footsteps of some golfing greats by claiming victory at Pebble Beach in the American Golf Holiday (AGH) biennial Pro-Am Tour. 

The 25-year-old PGA Europro Tour player finished two-under-par to claim the title ahead of Kings Hill Golf Club’s Benn Barham and Upminster Golf Club’s Marc Etherington, who finished second and third respectively.  

The 54-hole event also featured The Links course at Spanish Bay and Spyglass Hill with the Pro-Am team event won by Simon Boyd and his playing partners Simon Ingram, Toby Ingram and Oliver Ingram. Barham guided his team to second with Shadbolt’s third.
