    PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Tommy Gainey birdied No. 18 for a 3-under 69 and a one-stroke victory in the Pebble Beach Invitational on Sunday.

    Kirk Triplett and William McGirt tied for second in the tournament that featured players from the PGA, LPGA, Champions and Web.com tours.

    Triplett, who was tied for the lead following the second round, closed with a 68 and McGirt shot a 69 in the final round.

    Gainey, who trailed leader Robert Streb by two shots at the beginning of the day, finished at 11 under 277.

    McGirt and Triplett, playing one group ahead of Gainey, both missed birdie attempts on 18.
