Fifth Pebble Beach victory makes Mickelson's day

Phil Mickelson celebrates his victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Play was suspended for several hours and despite Phil Mickelson's best efforts of persuasion, 54-hole leader, Paul Casey, had - had enough and play was called for the day as darkness fell, with the final pair having just a couple of holes to play.

It is Mickelson and Casey now battling to win the tournament, while Scott Stallings also has an outside chance.

There is nothing better in golf than eagling the last hole and that fact will not be lost on David Law after the young Scotsman wrapped up his first European Tour title in style on Sunday.

Mickelson, who started the final round three shots behind, never came close to a bogey and built a three-shot lead through 16 holes Sunday night when it became too dark to finish, no matter how hard he lobbied to keep going.

The PGA Tour is making another stop at Pebble Beach this season for the U.S. Open, and that is the only major championship Mickelson hasn't won.

He finished at 19-under 268 and joined Tiger Woods as the only players to surpass US$90 million (NZ$133.7 million) in earnings.

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

The U.S. Open will be at Pebble Beach this year but Phil Mickelson does not think winning there on Monday will aid his Grand Slam chances. Casey has a 3-foot par putt to stay three shots behind when they return at 8 a.m. Monday to play the par-3 17th and the par-5 18th.

This was Mickelson's fifth AT&T title so it's fair to say he was a tournament specialist before this week but he was still generally a [36.0] chance and he even hit a high of [50.0] before the off. Casey, who traded at a similar price to Lefty pre-event, hit a high of [80.0] and a low of [1.5] in-play. Sometimes I just get in my own little bubble and I don't see the big picture and I just wanted to finish.

Enough with the scare stories, says PSG's Mbappe
The Red Devils travel to Paris for the second leg of their Champions League showdown with PSG on March 6. The Norwegian had won 10 of his 11 games in charge of United before their defeat against PSG .

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

Mickelson had not won on United States soil since the 2013 Phoenix Open. It's where his grandfather, Al Santos, was among the first caddies when the course opened in 1919, and Mickelson still uses as a marker the 1900 silver dollar his grandfather kept in his pocket to remind him he was not poor. The US Open remains the final piece of the career Grand Slam for Mickelson, who already holds the record with six runner-up finishes.

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. A missed cut in Phoenix, Mickelson said, was due in part to a driver experimentation that he quickly abandoned.

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.

For now, he was glowing over another victory that keeps him as relevant as ever.

The five-time Major victor has nothing to prove to anyone although I can't help thinking that Tiger Woods's return to winning ways previous year might have spurred him on.
