Mickelson makes it five wins at Pebble Beach Pro

California Hailstorm Delays Final Round of Pebble Beach Pro-Am Golf 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.

And sure enough, he managed to visit unknown parts of the Monterey Peninsula with a few wayward tee shots, endured a soggy, bone-numbing array of 5-plus-hour rounds, waited out a Sunday hailstorm that for a time whitened the course, made up a 3-shot deficit on Paul Casey and then - with victory imminent - all but pleaded to finish when all that would have been visible was his chattering teeth.

With light fading, Mickelson was keen to finish the round, saying: "I can see fine" but England's Casey opted not to putt on the 16th.

Mickelson returned to Pebble Beach Golf Links bright and early to close out his record-tying fifth A&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am victory, holding off Paul Casey in the weather-delayed finish to the PGA Tour event.

"It's been a very special week". Along with an outside chance at forcing a playoff, finishing alone in second instead of a tie is a difference of $152,000, along with world ranking points and FedEx Cup points.

Even so, it was the fourth time Casey took a 54-hole lead of at least two shots into the final round on the PGA Tour and failed to win. Casey and FedEx executive Don Colleran had a one-shot lead in the pro-am. "Let's play 17 and see how it goes".

PGA Tour tournament organisers resumed play on Sunday at 1pm (local time) as greenkeepers frantically cleared the hail and excess water from the greens and fairways using blowers and brooms. He won that summer's British Open at Muirfield and last year's Mexico Championship.

Mickelson had no problems with Casey's decision.

After his 9-iron into a foot at No. 9 to get within one shot, Mickelson holed a 12-foot birdie on the 10th with a drive that hugged the right side of the fairway and likely would have bounced into the ocean if not for conditions so soft from rain that balls plugged where they landed. Mickelson poured it on, showing his skills have not deteriorated a bit at age 48, controlling spin beautifully to back pin positions. "I have pretty good vision, I'm playing well and I wanted to continue".

Australian Jason Day and Si Woo Kim, of South Korea, were in the clubhouse on 13 under.
