Number of strokes under par that American Phil Mickelson played the last two holes Monday to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Play had been suspended late Sunday with Mickelson and England’s Paul Casey still on the course at Pebble Beach (Calif.) Golf Links. Mickelson held a three-stroke lead when play resumed early Monday, and that proved to be his winning margin as he and Casey finished par-birdie on Nos. 17-18. Mickelson shot a final-round 7-under 65 for a 19-under 268 total. Casey (71) finished second at 16-under 271. Mickelson, 48, won for the fifth time at Pebble Beach, tying another Californian, Mark O’Meara, for the most victories in the tournament. It was the 44th victory for Mickelson on the PGA Tour. The U.S. Open, the only major championship that Mickelson has yet to win, will be played June 13-16 at Pebble Beach. Mickelson’s 49th birthday will be the Sunday of the Open (scores).
