Sluman had a 4-under 68 in the final round at Pebble Beach.

Jones closed with a 70 for 208.

"It was very difficult out there with the wind, and the greens were like concrete," Sluman said. "But I just tried to play solid golf."

Sluman won $315,000.

Tom Lehman (73) and Mark O'Meara (75) tied for third at 209.
