Day inspired by top-five at rain-delayed Pebble

Day inspired by top-five at rain-delayed Pebble

I'm very happy we won the team competition. He had opened the week with a 69 at Pebble Beach, but that was in much nicer conditions that what he and the rest of the field faced on Sunday.

"The bottom line is I have to do well between now and then but I so want to be there", said McDowell who is 246th in the world and not yet qualified for the Masters or the US PGA.

Mickelson held a three-shot cushion with two holes remaining and was six under for his round when play was suspended at 5.55pm PT (1.55am GMT), much to the American's disappointment, with overnight leader Paul Casey in a share of second alongside clubhouse leader Scott Stallings.

What excites him is that he's putting as well as he has at any time in his career and has found an extra "5-6 miles per hour swing speed" he believes that could be the key at the Masters, even if he conceded that winning 50 times on the PGA Tour might prove a challenge.

Mickelson was standing on the 17th tee when he heard the horn sound to stop play, and he shook his head. It's where his grandfather, Al Santos, was among the first caddies when the course opened in 1919, and Mickelson still uses as a marker the 1900 silver dollar his grandfather kept in his pocket to remind him he was not poor.

I gotta say, it is pretty weird seeing this big blue dude with Will Smith's smiling face plastered on top. On Twitter, one man wrote, "I'm sorry but Will Smith as the Genie in #Aladdin is nightmare fuel.

The start of play was delayed by an hour because of rain and was halted for another two hours due to a hail storm, leaving the final group unable to finish their round before darkness fell in California. 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. Mickelson never came close to making bogey and won for the 44th time on the PGA Tour.

"I get exactly where Paul is coming from; I have pretty good vision, so I could see fine and I am playing well". But he said he understood Casey's perspective.

A birdie from the fringe at 14 left him even for the day and 15-under par for the tournament.

"The name of the game is you've got to make putts and you've got to roll it", Woods said after the second round, according to ESPN.

It won't be the last time Mickelson gets to play Pebble Beach this year. I have such great memories here and I would love nothing more than to add to it, five months from now. And even at 48, that never gets old. Mickelson has been runner-up at the U.S. Open six times in his career and finished fourth the last time the tournament was at Pebble Beach, in 2010.
