'Lefty' clinches Pebble Beach trophy

11th February 2019, 16:45 by James Mason

Phil Mickelson made more history on Monday after he won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for the fifth time.

Bad light forced the final group to come back on Monday with just two holes left to play and Mickelson, who had moved three shots ahead when play was suspended, eased to victory after making par at the 17th before a birdie at the last.

The 48-year-old signed for a seven-under-par 65 to finish on -19, three strokes clear of third-round leader Paul Casey, and match Mark O'Meara's record of five victories in the event.

US star Scott Stallings was a further stroke back on -15 after he went round in 66, whilst Australian Jason Day and South Korean Si Woo Kim shared fourth place on -13 after threatening to challenge during points of their final round.

American Scott Langley finished sixth on -12, one shot clear of compatriots Lucas Glover, Brian Gay and Kevin Streelman, whilst the US quartet of Max Homa, Michael Thompson, Chris Stroud and Scott Piercy ended on -10.
