Phil Mickelson shot a final-round 65 at Pebble Beach Golf Links to claim a three-stroke victory at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Mickelson signed for a bogey-free card comprised of 10 pars and eight birdies, including a final-hole gain to reach 19-under par, three clear of Paul Casey, who also birdied No. 18 to secure solo second-place on 16 under.
It was the 48-year old American’s fifth career Pebble Beach Pro-Am title, and 44th win of his PGA Tour career. He earned $1,368,000 and 500 FedExCup points, while also picking up 46 OWGR points to move into the top-20 at No. 17.
Runner-up Casey seems to have made a wise decision to wait an extra day to finish his final round, as his solo-second place was worth $820,800 – about $300k better than third place, along with 300 FedExCup and 27.6 OWGR points. Casey was projected to move from 24th to 19th in the Official World Golf Rankings.
