Mickelson Ties Tournament Record with 5th Win at Pebble Beach

Phil Mickelson finished off a 7-under 65 to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for the 5th time, tying the tournament record.

Mickelson had a three-shot lead over Paul Casey with two holes to play when it was too dark too finish because of the delays from a rain and a hail storm. Casey’s only hope of winning was for Mickelson to make a mistake, but Mickelson was at his best.

He hit a 7-iron to 8 feet on the par-3 17th and played it safe down the par-5 18th, making a 6-foot birdie for a three-shot victory.

He finished at 19-under 268 and joined Tiger Woods as the only players to surpass $90 million in earnings. He also tied Mark O’Meara’s record with his fifth victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach.

Casey finished with a birdie, finishing alone in second place and earning him $152,000.

Mickelson will return to Pebble Beach in June for the U.S. Open, where he made his pro debut in 1992. The U.S. Open remains the final piece missing for him to complete the career Grand Slam.
