Fifth Pebble Beach victory makes Mickelson's day

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.

When they did tee off Monday morning in cold conditions at 17, Mickelson and Casey each drove the ball about eight feet from the cup, missed a birdie putt and tapped in for par.

He matched the low score of the final round while playing in the last group, turning a three-shot deficit into a three-shot victory.

Both Mickelson and Casey will be playing in this week's Genesis Open, alongside the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. Casey at least birdied the 18th for a 71 to finish alone in second, the difference of $152,000. Casey and FedEx executive Don Colleran had a one-shot lead in the pro-am.

Is there any cause and effect to Mickelson's success on this site or are the two tournaments so completely different that it won't have any impact? Before he won, he marked his 500th PGA Tour cut made on Friday.

Play was suspended on Sunday due to weather and darkness. "Every time I get here I have such feelings of gratitude for all this place has done for my family, starting with my grandfather".

Casey has a four-foot putt to save par on the 16th green when play resumes at 8am (4pm GMT) on Monday, while Stallings holds the clubhouse lead on 15 under after a six-under 66.

The company's average trading volume now stands at 11.69M shares, which means that the short-interest ratio is just 5.79 days. Outperform is an analyst recommendation which means that a stock is expected to do slightly better than the market return.

"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.

American Scott Stallings is third at 14 under, while South Korea's Si Woo Kim and Scott Langley are a shot back.

The four-time Pebble Beach victor nearly holed out from the ninth fairway to leave a tap-in birdie and complete a front-nine 33, before rolling in from 12 feet at the next to move into a share of the lead.

He has won five majors - the Masters (2004, 2006, 2010), PGA Championship (2005) and British Open (2013).

Day now has six top-six results in 10 starts at the celebrity-laden Pebble Beach event but was frustrated that victory still eludes him. The US Open remains the final piece missing for him to complete the career grand lam, though Lefty was quick to caution that this week had no bearing on this summer. And while the fairway lines already have been brought in to be much narrower than usual, the rough was light.

"Very simply it's nothing like the course we'll see". I had a 5-6mph jump in the last three or four months.

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