Mickelson downplays U.S. Open prospects after Pebble Beach win

Another man claiming victory with a fabulous finish this week was Phil Mickelson, who carded a seven-under-par final round to see off England's Paul Casey and win the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

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.

Nobody has ever won a major championship at the age Mickelson is at now, but then again, not too many players have had the confidence to play two holes essentially blindfolded - as he wanted to do to finish this off Sunday night instead of Monday morning.

Hale Irwin, who won the 1990 edition of the US Open at 45 years and 15 days old, is the oldest US Open victor to date so the stats are really against Phil Mickelson, who turns 49 on the Sunday of this year's edition.

The five-time Major victor has nothing to prove to anyone although I can't help thinking that Tiger Woods's return to winning ways previous year might have spurred him on.

Cops have said they found plenty of surveillance video, but none that captured the incident. They have yet to locate footage of the actual attack.

He also won the Pro-Am with Don Colleran, the chief sales officer for FedEx.

Welcome to the official YouTube channel of the PGA TOUR. "I thanked Paul this morning for having us finish in the morning because I get sometimes in my own little bubble that I don't see the big picture", he told Golf Channel's Peter Kostis after the tournament.

Mickelson was standing on the 17th tee when he heard the horn sound to stop play, and he shook his head.

He believes power and the short game are the keys at the Masters and Pebble Beach confirmed not just that he's on track to contend at Augusta, but that there's hope for golf's 40-somethings, including Tiger Woods. Casey could barely see the 3 feet of grass between his ball and the cup on the 16th hole and said there was no way to complete two holes in six minutes.

Even so, it was the fourth time Casey took a 54-hole lead of at least two shots into the final round on the PGA Tour and failed to win.

And my mother, being the loving little lady that she is, I was never late to a practice, she was always there. And this just means he'll have another chance next January to grow out a beard fit for a family of birds.

Casey called Mickelson's effort "a phenomenal round of golf" but added: "It's not over yet". Mickelson marked his ball all week with a silver coin given to him by his grandfather, Al Santos, one of the original caddies at Pebble Beach in 1919. A missed cut in Phoenix, Mickelson said, was due in part to a driver experimentation that he quickly abandoned. "The rough will be so deep and the greens will be so fast, it will be a totally different course".

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

But the final day, and all week, was about the ageless Mickelson.

"It's dark and we have a chance to come out on Monday on fresh greens". He closed with a 65 for a 10-under-par 278 total.
