(Pebble Beach, California-AP) -- Tulsa-native Matt Gogel won the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Sunday for his first victory on the PGA Tour.

Gogel was victimized by Tiger Woods' incredible comeback at Pebble Beach two years ago.

Sunday, Gogel holed a 25-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole and won the tournament when Q-school winner Pat Perez took a triple bogey on the final hole.

Gogel became the third straight player to come from at least four shots back on the final day to win at Pebble Beach. He picked up 720-thousand dollars for the victory.

Former University of Oklahoma golfer Andrew Magee tied for third.
