       Highlights from Phil Mickelson's final round at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Phil Mickelson was closing in on a fifth Pebble Beach Pro-Am title when darkness halted play in the final round of the weather-hit US PGA Tour tournament.

CBS will provide live coverage of the event via its website, with coverage starting at 11 a.m. ET and continuing until play is finished.

Mickelson is now top of the leaderboard on 18-under with two holes left to play, while Casey is on 15-under with three holes left.

Scott Stallings finished Sunday night with a 66 to finish alone in third.

"I really don't think there's any carryover from here to the U.S. Open", he said after the victory. The 48-year-old, five-time major victor took home his second tournament in the last two years after not having won since 2013.

"The rough will be so different and the greens so firm it will be a whole different golf course but I'll deal with that in six months".

Mickelson was standing on the 17th tee when he heard the horn sound to stop play, and he shook his head.

Mickelson's first goal is that fourth green jacket and he believes that even now, at the age of 48, he has the power and the putting touch to give McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and the rest a run for their money in eight weeks' time.

That also led him to enter this week's Genesis Open, which he had not planned to play, prior to defending a title at the WGC-Mexico Championship next week.

Casey took a three-shot lead into the final round but ends the week three strokes back after a one-under 71, with the two-time PGA Tour victor finding plenty of positives heading into this week's Genesis Open.

As Jim Nantz stated in a post I wrote earlier this year, Pebble Beach seems like the ideal place for Lefty to finally get that U.S. Open win.

"A phenomenal round of golf, " Casey said. Mickelson marked his ball all week with a silver coin given to him by his grandfather, Al Santos, one of the original caddies at Pebble Beach in 1919. Casey could barely see the 3 feet of grass between his ball and the cup on the 16th hole and said there was no way to complete two holes in six minutes.

"That's probably a good omen", Mickelson said.

There was never a reasonable chance to finish in his pro-am format, with mostly foursomes across the golf course.

Woods posted consecutive rounds of 71 and he needed to post a low number to get near the top of the leaderboard heading into the final day, and while it didn't pan out for Woods, the improvement was impossible to ignore. We had a chance to come out today on fresh greens, better weather and being able to see a lot better.

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