Pebble Beach hit by hail storm during final round

Pebble Beach hit by hail storm during final round

Phil Mickelson watch his tee shot at 18 during the conclusion of the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

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.

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. Play was suspended on February 2 and resumed and ended on August 17. "We had a chance to come out today on fresh greens, better weather and be able to see a lot better".

"When guys get in their 40s, two things decline, their putting and their swing speed", said the new world number 17, who is now swinging at close to 120 miles per hour.

Resuming again after the delay has not affected momentum for the final group, with England veteran Casey and Mickelson tied at 16-under-par.

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

"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.

This was his fifth win at Pebble Beach, a attractive golf course that he clearly knows very well and is also staging the US Open this year. A missed cut in Phoenix, Mickelson said, was due in part to a driver experimentation that he quickly abandoned.

From our point of view, we were disappointed with it.' Stuart Hogg could be an injury worry for Scotland ahead of the visit to face France in Paris in a fortnight.

Casey was just shy of the green in two, but got up and down from six feet to finish second alone.

"I get exactly where Paul is coming from", Mickelson said.

Casey carded a lone birdie on the front nine, while Mickelson picked up three before adding another at the par-4 10th to join Casey atop the leaderboard.

Both Mickelson and Casey will be playing in this week's Genesis Open, alongside the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

The five-times major champion will get a chance to complete the career grand slam when the U.S. Open is played at Pebble Beach in June, but Mickelson wants to savour his latest success first.

"It's nothing like the course we'll see", Mickelson said.

The 48-year-old, five-time major victor took home his second tournament in the last two years after not having won since 2013.

The American, who started the final round at Pebble Beach three shots back, ended with a three-shot lead with two holes left to play.
