Phil Mickelson grabs a fifth career win at Pebble Beach

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 is now top of the leaderboard on 18-under with two holes left to play, while Casey is on 15-under with three holes left.

Englishman Paul Casey started the round at 15 under, three strokes clear of Phil Mickelson.

Mickelson hit 7-iron to 8 feet on the par-3 17th and played it safe down the par-5 18th, making a 6-foot birdie for a three-shot victory.

Casey finished with a birdie that was worth US$152,000 (NZ$225,000) because he wound up alone in second place.

Special weather statement issued, calling for significant winter storm on Tuesday
It could warm up enough to bring only rain, with no freezing rain or sleet, according to the National Weather Service . Eventually , it'll switch over completely to just rain but that won't be until later Tuesday afternoon .


With light rapidly fading, Mickelson posted two-putt pars over his next two holes and was keen to continue, but playing partner Casey held firm and discussed with PGA Tour officials that it was too dark to continue. Casey and FedEx executive Don Colleran had a one-shot lead in the pro-am.

Mickelson recorded his 44th PGA Tour victory in style with a closing seven-under-par 65 at Pebble Beach. The 2018 event was won by Ted Potter Jr., who missed the cut this year when he was unable to bounce back after shooting an 82 in the first round and finished the three-day stretch at 12-over par.

Mickelson argued that he could "see just fine" on Sunday evening, moments after sunset with two holes remaining.

Overnight leader Casey had a three-shot advantage over Mickelson at the start of the day, but the five-time major victor made up the deficit with three birdies in the front nine and three more after the turn. Casey said there was no way to finish and they had to return Monday morning.

Mickelson's longest putt for par was 4 feet.

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is the largest pro-Israel lobby in America and apparently Omar's target. There has been no movement from Democratic leadership to remove Omar from her committee assignments.


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

Casey was at 15 under, tied with Scott Stallings, who closed with a 66.

The five-times major champion will get a chance to complete the career grand slam when the US Open is played at Pebble Beach in June, but Mickelson wants to savour his latest success first. He surrendered a four-shot lead past year at the Travelers Championship, where Bubba Watson closed with a 63.

Pebble Beach was so soft that balls were plugging in the fairway when they landed.

"It's nothing like the course we'll see", Mickelson said. I would love nothing more than to add to it five months from now, but that's so far down the road.
