Golf Australia Express : GA Express 319
THE P hil Mickelson is used to waiting at Pebble Beach, but that didn’t mean he was thrilled to have to return on Monday to finally sign off on PGA Tour win number 44. Significantly less than his first victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-am that required a six and a half month wait after weather forced the PGA Tour to postpone the final round until August 1998, Mickelson’s hometown victory was put on ice for a day due to darkness on Sunday after multiple weather delays. Having putted out on 16 Mickelson was heard telling rules official Mark Russell “I can see fine” as he attempted to convince the Tour to allow him to finish in almost darkness. Lefty’s pleadings were in stark contrast to fellow competitor Paul Casey, who decided to mark his ball on the 16th green and wait for Monday morning to see if he could wrestle back the three-stroke deficit Mickelson had opened up on Sunday. WORTH THE WAIT Mickelson acknowledged the benefit of facing “pure conditions” for the remaining two holes on Monday, when he managed to claim the title for a fifth time. Jason Day was the top Aussie, securing a second straight top-5 finish.
