Phil Mickelson praises Paul Casey after sealing Pebble Beach win

13 Февраля, 2019, 12:55 | Author: Suzanne Horton
  • Mickelson and Casey will have to return on Monday

He played two holes just as well as the previous 16 and polished off his bogey-free final round with one last birdie for a 7-under-par 65 and a three-shot victory over Paul Casey in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

CBS will provide live coverage of the event via its website, with coverage starting at 11 a.m. ET and continuing until play is finished.

He seemed undaunted on Monday, though, hitting his approach to the par-three 17th close before finishing with a birdie at the par-five 18th to get to 19-under for the tournament.

"I really don't think there's any carry-over from here to the U.S. Open". The 48-year-old, five-time major victor took home his second tournament in the last two years after not having won since 2013.

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

"The rough will be so different and the greens so firm it will be a whole different golf course but I'll deal with that in six months".

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.

As highlighted in the In-Play Blog, the Englishman's record when leading on the PGA Tour is woeful and he's one to take on. He won that summer's British Open at Muirfield and last year's Mexico Championship.

He believes power and the short game are the keys at the Masters and Pebble Beach confirmed not just that he's on track to contend at Augusta, but that there's hope for golf's 40-somethings, including Tiger Woods. "In all honesty, it's a good thing to play the last two holes in fresh conditions".

"It means a lot to me to play the final round as focused and as well as I did", said Mickelson, who started the final round three strokes behind Casey.

Mickelson and Casey were waiting to tee off when clouds moved in quickly moved in, and rain turned into hail that pounded umbrellas, many of them held sideways to account for the wind. Mickelson marked his ball all week with a silver coin given to him by his grandfather, Al Santos, one of the original caddies at Pebble Beach in 1919.

Asked in a greenside interview what the performance did for his confidence, Mickelson said: "Absolutely nothing, because it's nothing like the course we'll see". "It's a totally different golf course".

"I thanked Paul this morning because I sometimes in my own little bubble I don't see the big picture", Mickelson said. Mickelson poured it on, showing his skills have not deteriorated a bit at age 48, controlling spin beautifully to back pin positions. A frightful tee-shot was followed by a chip that failed to find the green and a third that wasn't much better and after a fast start, which had seen him birdie the first two holes and three of the first five, and following a run of 11 straight pars, the 38-year-old Aussie missed his bogey attempt and tapped in for a double-bogey five.
