Mickelson closes out Pebble Beach Pro-Am victory

California Hailstorm Delays Final Round of Pebble Beach Pro-Am Golf Tournament

California Hailstorm Delays Final Round of Pebble Beach Pro-Am Golf Tournament

With the final round suspended Sunday night because of darkness, Mickelson and Paul Casey returned to Pebble Beach Monday morning to complete the final two-plus holes with Mickelson ahead by three shots.

The last time the final round was played on Monday was in 2000, when Tiger Woods rallied from a five-shot deficit to win his sixth consecutive PGA Tour start.

Play has just resumed at the final round of the US PGA Tour's Pebble Beach Pro Am after being suspended for just over two hours due to a hail storm.

Mickelson wanted to try and finish Sunday, but neither Casey nor the solar system was willing to go along.

Paul Casey says he could barely see on the 16th hole.

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.

Mickelson already made his par on the 16th and was 6 under for the day, with no bogeys on his card, and 18-under par for the tournament.

His brilliant play still shared the stage with weather that was weird even by Pebble standards.

Workers used squeegees and leaf blowers to remove the hail. Patrick Reed's brother laid on his back and tried to make a snow angel.

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.

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.

After his 9-iron into a foot at No. 9 to get within one shot, Mickelson holed a 12-foot birdie on the 10th with a drive that hugged the right side of the fairway and likely would have bounced into the ocean if not for conditions so soft from rain that balls plugged where they landed. "I totally get where he's coming from", he told reporters Sunday.

Some players finished in the dark with no chance of winning, but showed the effect of playing without light. Jason Day and Si Woo Kim tied for fourth place (13 under), rounding out the top five.
