PHIL’S AMAZED us again. And it was appropriate the scene for his latest thrilling final round—and 40th Tour title—was at the spectacular Pebble Beach. Six shots off the lead heading into the final round, Mickelson reeled off one of the most dominating performances of his career firing a bogey-free 8-under 64 in front of a stunned crowd. The mesmerising display—and 17-under event total—was enough to claim the 41-year-old his fourth AT&T title at a time many commentators were doubting his game. Paired with career-rival Tiger Woods in Round 4, Mickelson again outshone the former world No.1, this time by a mammoth 11 shots on Sunday. Even Lefty himself was chuffed with his performance. “ It feels just amazing,” Mickelson said after the final round. “To be able to play the way I did the last 18 holes really means a lot.” Mickelson’s wife, Amy, gave her husband a congratulatory hug after his final birdie putt dropped at the par-5 18th. “ What a round,” she said. “Are you kidding me?” Overnight leader Korean Charlie Wi recovered from a shocking start and shot even-par to finish second. American Ricky Barnes was third at 13-under. Mickelson collected more than US$1.15 million and moves to the No.11 world ranking. OTG WHAT JUST HAPPENED ON THE PGA TOUR...
