Tiger struggles as Mickelson shines at Pebble Beach

Phil Mickelson shot an impressive eight-under-par 64 and came from six shots behind to win the Pebble Beach Pro-Am by three shots on 16 under par.

Mickelson hit three birdies and an eagle in his first six holes to wipe out the overnight lead of Charlie Wi who got off to the worst possible start by four putting the first hole and found himself playing catch up early on.

Wi closed with three birdies to finish with a 72 to end second on 15 under. Just a shame Sky Sports didn’t want to show Wi finish the the 18th hole, especially as if he had holed his second shot he would have tied the lead!!

Tiger Woods bogeyed the final three holes on the front nine on his way to a 75 as he dropped back to eight under. Tiger never really got going, he missed four or five really short putts which is unlike Tiger. He seems to be starting tournaments well but can’t seem to finish them off like he used to.

“It just feels great to win this tournament,” Mickelson, 41, said.

“It’s a special place for me, Pebble Beach, and to have a win here, where my grandfather caddied, feels awesome.
