Phil Mickelson wins at Pebble Beach: Is U.S. Open next?

Don't spike this Rule 13.1c proving handy at Pebble Beach

"So at the end of past year, 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.

He finished at 19-under 268, while Englishman Paul Casey (71) birdied the final hole for second place on 16-under.

He also won the Pro-Am with Don Colleran, the chief sales officer for FedEx.

However, the 5-time Major victor hasn't been as animated on the golf course as usual, and he revealed that's down to his personal relationship with Casey.

"I really don't think there's any carry-over from here to the U.S. Open".

Casey took a three-shot lead into the final round but ends the week three strokes back after a one-under 71, with the two-time PGA Tour victor finding plenty of positives heading into this week's Genesis Open. "In all honesty, it's a good thing to play the last two holes in fresh conditions".

Law stroked the eagle putt home to draw level before Ormsby made a complete hash of the par three 17th. "Sometimes I get in my little bubble and don't see the big picture".

North Korea's participation in sporting events has in the past been hindered by the country's relationship with the South. The production came in spite of nuclear talks with the USA led by the historic summit in Singapore last June.

He gained ground with birdies at the par-five second and the fourth, then made back-to-back birdies at the ninth and 10th - two of the toughest holes on the course.

"A phenomenal round of golf, " Casey said.

Phil Mickelson was not pleased when play at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was suspended because of darkness. Six runner-up finishes, some in the most heartbreaking fashion, dot his career, the tournament keeping him from a career Grand Slam.

Graeme McDowell, the 2010 US Open champion there, was buoyed by a tied 18th finish in his first start since suffering a wrist injury on December 28.

His first one also was a Monday finish, when players returned in August - more than six months later - to finish the third round of the weather-plagued tournament to make it official.

Pebble Beach was so soft that balls were plugging in the fairway when they landed. A missed cut in Phoenix, Mickelson said, was due in part to a driver experimentation that he quickly abandoned.

Mickelson lives for the moment. And even at 48, that never gets old. He says he had as much fun winning at Pebble Beach as when he finished one shot behind in the Desert Classic three weeks ago.
