Mickelson explains lack of emotion when playing with Casey

Phil Mickelson closes in on fifth AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am win

Don't spike this Rule 13.1c proving handy at Pebble Beach

Veteran left-hander Mickelson started his final round of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday three shots off the lead but ended up sealing victory by as many strokes in a weather-delayed finale on Monday.

CBS will provide live coverage of the event via its website, with coverage starting at 11 a.m. ET and continuing until play is finished.

US PGA Tour officials suspended play for two hours when heavy rain, wind and even hail lashed California's Monterey Peninsula, with the postponement all but guaranteeing the final round will have to be completed on Monday. "It's dark and we're going to have a good chance tomorrow to come out on fresh greens". Casey could barely see the 3 feet of grass between his ball and the cup on the 16th hole and said there was no way to complete two holes in six minutes.

"I've written down a goal of winning L.A. and I had an outside chance of winning this one - I had a very good chance of winning this one", Casey said.

Mickelson, gunning for a 44th US PGA Tour title, was unfazed by the uncertainty.

Mickelson tied Mark O'Meara's record with his fifth victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach, the first one also a Monday finish in 1998 because of bad weather, with one big difference - that Monday finish was more than six months later in August.

"That's probably a good omen", Mickelson said.




"I was coming here this week with a little trepidation", said McDowell, who does not get to join McIlroy or Seamus Power in Los Angeles for this week's Genesis Open and will be playing in opposite field Puerto Rico Open next week rather than the $2.25 million WGC Mexico Championship.

I didn't get involved before the event Down Under and my three in-play picks all drew a blank but the AT&T worked out very nicely.

"From my angle it was are we going to get 18 done", he said.

@PhilMickelson is a 44-time victor on the PGA TOUR. This time, he closed with a 71 and lost to Mickelson's 65, which matched the low score of the final round. As darkness descended on the course, Mickelson had just tapped in on the 16th green with Casey still to putt.

The last time the final round was played on Monday was in 2000, when Tiger Woods rallied from a five-shot deficit. In fact, he's finished second six times.

The four-time Pebble Beach victor nearly holed out from the ninth fairway to leave a tap-in birdie and complete a front-nine 33, before rolling in from 12 feet at the next to move into a share of the lead. I had a 5-6mph jump in the last three or four months.
