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

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

The steam coming off his head in the Sunday night gloaming at Pebble Beach was undoubtedly due to the frigid air that permeated the tournament, although few would be surprised if Phil Mickelson really was seething over the idea that he wouldn't be allowed to finish despite two holes to play in enveloping darkness.

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

What excites him is that he's putting as well as he has at any time in his career and has found an extra "5-6 miles per hour swing speed" he believes that could be the key at the Masters, even if he conceded that winning 50 times on the PGA Tour might prove a challenge.

"It has been a special week for me", Mickelson said. All four players return to Pebble along with numerous game's best, including Jordan Spieth, Tony Finau and Jason Day.

"The challenge is there are so many great young players in the game that it takes our best to win".

About the only thing that didn't go Mickelson's way was the timing. "I can see fine".

The victory, Mickelson's first since the WGC-Mexico Championship last March and first on USA soil in six years, carries special significance for him.

There was plenty of sunlight for the Monday morning finish, just no drama.

The final round started an hour late because of rain, and then it was delayed two more hours when sunshine gave way to a hail storm in a matter of minutes, covering the putting greens in a sheet of white. The greens were beat up.

Officials tell KHOU-TV the tiger was well fed , but the cage was secured by a nylon strap and screwdriver. Officials said the tiger will be taken to the BARC animal shelter at 3300 Carr St.

Hailstorms are a rarity on Monterey Peninsula, at least in February.

The American is on 18 under with two holes left to play, with playing partner Paul Casey on 15 under.

"There's still a glimmer", Casey said of his chances.

CHAMPIONS: Bernhard Langer made himself right at home in the Oasis Championship.

"Sometimes I get in my own bubble", Mickelson said.

Mickelson finished at 19-under 268.

Mickelson began by calmly knocking his tee shot on the par-three 17th to inside 10 feet and Casey followed suit, but when the 41-year-old failed to sink an eight-footer for birdie his hopes of snatching the win were effectively ended.

Casey birdied the 18th for a 71 to finish alone in second, and he won the pro-am portion of the tournament.

He also won the Pro-Am with Don Colleran, the chief sales officer for FedEx. And it is where he will turn 49 on the final day of the 2019 U.S. Open. Before he won, he marked his 500th PGA Tour cut made on Friday.
