Phil Mickelson, who made par putts of 31 and 38 feet, also made some birdies as he won his fourth AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am title Sunday and his 40th PGA Tour title.
Mickelson, whose wife, Amy, was teary-eyed in the crowd, shot an eight-under-par 64, the best round of the day.
"This feels just amazing," said Mickelson, who won $1.152 million. "It feels awesome and hopefully it's just one of a few to come this year because I'm starting to feel pretty good."
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP)—On a day when sunshine gave way to a light rain, two things stayed the same Friday at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Charlie Wi was still atop the leaderboard, and Tiger Woods didn’t hole enough putts to make up ground.
Dustin Johnson was caught off guard by the rain in the worst way. He stood in the fourth fairway at Spyglass with a short-sleeve shirt, hands thrust in his pocket, as his caddie sent a friend running up the hill to the parking lot to retrieve his rain gear. His short game let him down, and the two-time Pebble champion had to settle for a 72 that put him three back.
