Highlights | Round 4 | AT&T Pebble Beach 2019

Pebble Beach Pro Am hit by hail storm during final round

"This is a special place for me".

Undoubtedly Mickelson will be the subject of considerable conjecture when the golf world returns to Pebble Beach in June for the 119th playing of the U.S. Open, the major that defines Lefty's bouts of futility more than anything.

Overnight leader Casey had a three-shot advantage over Mickelson at the start of the day, but the five-time major victor made up the deficit with three birdies in the front nine and three more after the turn.

It was just the 48-year-old's second title since 2013, so it was unsurprising to hear during his news conference he had not thought of reaching $100m. "Let's play 17 and see how it goes". "And I have believed for some time that if I play at my best, it will be good enough to win tournaments". It's where his grandfather, Al Santos, was among the first caddies when the course opened in 1919, and Mickelson still uses as a marker the 1900 silver dollar his grandfather kept in his pocket to remind him he was not poor.

The final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was delayed Sunday by the kind of weather that once gave this event its reputation, including a hail storm that covered the greens in white. The greens were beat up (on Sunday).

"Sometimes I get in my own bubble", Mickelson said.

But Casey told GolfChannel.com that he "genuinely" couldn't see.

Casey's only hope was for Mickelson to make a mistake on the closing holes, and there was little chance of that. But he said he understood Casey's perspective.

The last time the final round was played on Monday was in 2000, when Tiger Woods rallied from a five-shot deficit to win his sixth consecutive PGA Tour start.

"So at the end of a year ago, even though I played poorly, I had something happen where it seemed like overnight - it had really been in the works - where my driver speed shot up 5, 6 miles an hour, which rarely ever happens to anybody, let alone somebody in their late 40s", he said. "I'll deal with that in six months". Mickelson has been runner-up at the U.S. Open six times in his career and finished fourth the last time the tournament was at Pebble Beach, in 2010.

"When guys get in their 40s, two things decline, their putting and their swing speed", said the new world number 17, who is now swinging at close to 120 miles per hour.

His path to victory these days is never going to be mundane, even in a tournament where he went an entire round without missing a fairway - a 20-year first.
