The 34-year-old carded a three-under final round of 69 to finish on -17 overall to secure his second title on the tour and first since 2012.

The American was a model of consistency on the back nine and he parred the final 11 holes in total, despite big names Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson all breathing down his neck.

Potter had to play on the Web.com Tour last year to regain his PGA Tour card after a spell out with a broken ankle and he admitted afterwards to return to winning ways at Pebble Beach was a special moment.

He told Sky Sports: 'This is truly unbelievable. I was just trying to take it one shot at a time and focus on that on the way in.

'It's a big confidence boost, I'm very happy to come back after everything and to win here is just crazy.'

Mickelson, Chez Reavie, Day, and world number one Johnson all ended on -14 in a four-way tie for second, one shot ahead of Kevin Streelman on 13 under.
