Sunday's golf roundup: Mickelson leads delayed Pebble Beach pro

Phil Mickelson's bid for a fifth AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am title will head into Monday after play was suspended in a weather-affected final round.

Casey missed an eight foot birdie chance on the penultimate hole while his long eagle attempt at the par-5 18 ran six feet past and after watching Casey make his closing birdie to secure outright second, Mickelson made no mistake from a similar distance to close out a -7 65 to complete a three-shot victory.

Casey simply couldn't see, and we realized it was not possible to finish all 18 holes - "We can't finish two holes in six minutes", he said to the official - he opted to mark his ball on the 16th green. "I have pretty good vision, I'm playing well and I wanted to continue".

"I thanked Paul this morning for letting us finish in the morning", he told the Golf Channel, admitting that he had been in his "little bubble" and self-centered. "It's a totally different golf course. The greens will be firm, the rough will be high", said Mickelson after clinching his 44th PGA Tour title.

"So at the end of a year ago, even though I played poorly, I had something happen where it seemed like overnight - it had really been in the works - where my driver speed shot up 5, 6 miles an hour, which rarely ever happens to anybody, let alone somebody in their late 40s", he said.

Scott Stallings (66) was in the clubhouse on 15-under 272, tied for second with Mickelson's playing partner and overnight leader Paul Casey.

The Portrush man turns 39 in July and while he lost his PGA Tour card previous year and must rely in invitations to fill out his schedule, he wants desperately to be at Royal Portrush for The Open.

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.

Casey blinked first with a bogey on the 11th hole, and another on the par-3 12th when his tee shot came up short and into the bunker.

Mickelson will have to return at 8 a.m. Monday to play the last two holes.

"(It means) absolutely nothing because it's nothing like the course we'll see", Mickelson said.

Mickelson, however, doesn't think the win this week will give him an edge in June.

With a total of five bedrooms and seven baths, four bedroom suites open to ocean-view terraces, including the master suite that includes a sitting room, glamorous marble bath and closets. Jason Day (68) and Kim Si-woo (68) were two strokes further back on 13-under 274.
