Mickelson’s 64 Helps Fuel Comeback Victory At Pebble Beach

PEBBLE BEACH (AP) — Phil Mickelson delivered the Sunday charge at Pebble Beach and made Tiger Woods’ road back look a lot longer.

Six shots out of the lead going into the final round, Mickelson made putts from all over the place in closing with an 8-under 64 to win the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and become only the ninth player with 40 career PGA Tour wins.

Playing alongside Woods, his old nemesis, Mickelson beat him by 11 shots.

Woods couldn’t make a birdie in the easy opening stretch, ran off three straight bogeys at the turn and three-putted for par on the 18th hole for a 75 to tie for 15th.

Charlie Wi, who began with a three-shot lead, four-putted for double bogey on the opening hole and never recovered.
