Mickelson on brink of victory at Pebble Beach Pro-am
Phil Mickelson put himself on the brink of a fifth victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach pro-am by turning a three-shot deficit into a three-shot lead when a wild day of weather kept him from finishing Sunday in California.
Mickelson will have to return at 8 a.m. Monday to play the last two holes.
About the only thing that didn’t go Mickelson’s way was the timing. The final round started an hour late because of rain, and then was delayed two more hours when sunshine gave way to a hail storm that covered greens in white.
Celine Boutier claimed a two-stroke victory in the LPGA’S Vic Open, while David Law made an eagle on the par-5 18th to win the men’s title by a stroke over Brad Kennedy and Wade Ormsby in Barwon Heads, Australia.
Boutier shot a final-round 72 to finish at 8-under 281. Sarah Kemp (65), Su Oh (74) and Charlotte Thomas (69) were tied for second.
Law’s final-round 66 left him a stroke ahead of Kennedy (67) and thirdround leader Ormsby (70)
Bernhard Langer made himself right at home in the Oasis Championship in Boca Raton, Florida .
Playing 10 minutes from his house, the 61-yearold German closed with a 7-under 65 on Sunday in windy condition at The Old Course at Broken Sound for a five-stroke victory. He finished at a tournamentrecord 19-under 197 for his 39th victory on the 50-andover circuit and earned $255,000 to break Hale Irwin’s tour career record with $27,196,504.
