PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Phil Mickelson put himself on the brink of a fifth victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach pro-am by turning a three-shot deficit into a three-shot lead when a wild day of weather kept him from finishing Sunday.

Mickelson will have to return at 8 a.m. Monday to play the last two holes.

About the only thing that didn't go Mickelson's way was the timing. The final round started an hour late because of rain, and then was delayed two more hours when sunshine gave way to a hail storm that covered greens in white.

Phil Mickelson poised to pocket landmark Pebble Beach Pro-Am win

Phil Mickelson poised to pocket landmark Pebble Beach Pro-Am win This one really matters to Phil Mickelson. His grandfather, Al Santos, was a caddie at Pebble Beach. Mickelson has won the AT&T Pro-Am four times, more than any player not named Mark O’Meara. And the U.S. Open returns here in June, the one title Mickelson craves more than all others. Oh, and one more not-so-incidental detail: He’s 48 years old. Few players remain relevant on the PGA Tour at that age, but Mickelson keeps chugging along. He won last year’s World Golf Championship event in Mexico City, threatened to win last month’s Desert Classic (he tied for second) and put himself in great position again Sunday at Pebble Beach.

Phil Mickelson goes next-level Phil Mickelson, plays flop shot OVER a hospitality stand at Riviera's 18th hole.
Just when you thought we've seen everything from Phil Mickelson, his short-game repertoire has officially been expanded. Add "flop shot over an enormous hospitality chalet" to the list of shots the 44-time PGA Tour winner is willing to pull off. On the final hole of his second round, Phil pulled his approach to Riviera County Club's 18th hole way right—so much so that it bounded down the cart path and came to rest next to the tee at the 10th hole. In between Phil and the 18th green was a huge hospitality grandstand, which would've entitled Phil to take relief and get a drop for line of sight. But this is Phil Mickelson.
