Mickelson Wins Weather-Delayed AT&T Pebble Beach Pro

Phil Mickelson won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am by three strokes on Monday, equalling Mark O'Meara's record of five victories in the northern California event.

Mickelson was visibly disappointed not to finish in near-darkness on Sunday evening as Casey refused to play on, leaving him having to return a day later to complete his final two holes, although now accepts the Englishman's decision. 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.

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

Trump to Call on Democrats to ‘Heal,’ and Bashes Pelosi Over Wall
Pelosi said funding for more ports of entry or additional border security technology was open for negotiation. Pelosi, by her stand against the wall, is costing the country hundreds of billions of dollars, Trump said .

Even as Mickelson strongly hinted at wanting to finish - at point suggesting they play the 17th and he could scoot ahead to get a ball in play on the 18th so at least he could finish - Casey stood his ground. Along with five titles at Pebble Beach, he ties Woods and Billy Casper - all three native Californians - with his 14th career victory in the Golden State.

Expanding on why he felt his performance at Pebble Beach boded well for Augusta, the three-time Masters victor said: "The two areas that you have to be at your best to play well at Augusta are you've got to hit the ball long and have a really good short game and those were two areas that were very helpful here".

Third-round leader Paul Casey, who mixed two bogeys with two birdies, was at 15 under with three holes remaining, tied with Scott Stallings who finished with a 66.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg plans to ‘merge’ Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram
Users on Facebook Messenger , Instagram , and WhatsApp would all be able to communicate, regardless of the app they are using. Employees at WhatsApp and Instagram balked as their apps lost their once-promised autonomy under their parent company.

"And so it's gratifying to see the results and to finish it off the way I did". "I thanked Paul this morning for letting us finish in the morning", he told the Golf Channel, admitting that he had been in his "little bubble" and self-centered. He won the British Open that summer in Scotland, and the Mexico Championship past year. Mickelson poured it on, showing his skills have not deteriorated a bit at age 48, controlling spin beautifully to back pin positions. The U.S. Open remains the final piece of the career Grand Slam for Mickelson, who already holds the record with six runner-up finishes. A missed cut in Phoenix, Mickelson said, was due in part to a driver experimentation that he quickly abandoned. "I'll deal with that in six months". He finished three shots behind Graeme McDowell in 2010, the last U.S. Open at Pebble.
