Phil Mickelson put himself on the brink of a fifth victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by turning a three-shot deficit into a three-shot lead when a wild day of weather kept him from finishing Sunday.
Golfers, caddies and spectators raced for cover Sunday when hail began to pelt the course at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Mickelson wanted to finish, even in the dark. All four players return to Pebble along with numerous game's best, including Jordan Spieth, Tony Finau and Jason Day.
Although suspended play didn't last six months, as it did for Mickelson at Pebble in 1998, he had seemed frustrated at the decision to suspend play Sunday, with Casey arguing the other point. He also won the pro-am with Don Colleran, the chief sales officer for FedEx.
"We've got two tough holes left and I don't want to jump the gun and get past that", Mickelson said. "Let's play 17 and see how it goes".
Victory was sealed by Mickelson with a gain on the iconic par-five 18th, completing a seven-under 65 to finish on 19 under for the tournament.
That also led him to enter this week's Genesis Open, which he had not planned to play, prior to defending a title at the WGC-Mexico Championship next week.
After a rain-delayed start, Mickelson had produced a blemish-free round and holed six birdies to move to 18 under before play was called off.
Mickelson will carry a three-shot lead into the final day, sitting at 18 under through 16 holes. Mickelson poured it on, showing his skills have not deteriorated a bit at age 48, controlling spin beautifully to back pin positions. He preferred to suspend play with his ball on the 16th green, resuming the tournament on Monday when the greens, which took a beating from rain Saturday night and an impressive hailstorm Sunday, would be fresh.
"I get where Paul is coming from", Mickelson said.
Whether it was continuing to be a part of U.S. Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup teams, finding a new workout routine, changing coaches, discovering a healthier diet, befriending - and needling - tour players who are young enough to be his son, Mickelson did his best to stay young. Jason Day and Si Woo Kim tied for fourth place (13 under), rounding out the top five.
