Feb 15 (THAINDIAN NEWS) American actor Bill Murray won the AT&T Pebble Beach Tournament, which is the largest Pro Amateur golf competition in the country, according to the Associated Press. Winning the tournament with two strokes gave Murray his second victory at the event, his previous win being with partner Scott Simpson during the Champions Tour.

The crowds at the Pebble Beach event loved Murray, and cheered him on as he joked, “I’m thinking of turning pro. I probably won’t. It’s really nice to play with a gentleman. He’s a good person. He’s from Illinois. He’s Lincoln-esque in stature and unfailingly polite”. He seemed to be shocked that he won, and added, “Pebble Beach may be the most iconic place in America to play golf, and to win here, it’s just a dream come true”.

Murray especially loves the course, located in California, and shared with ‘Golf.com’ back in 2010, “It’s a very special place. The course is great, beautiful, hard. You know, when I was watching the tournament [the 2010 U.S. Open], I was so proud”.
