Woods finds inspiration in Mickelson's win at Pebble Beach

Woods finds inspiration in Mickelson's win at Pebble Beach Tiger Woods kept a close eye on Phil Mickelson's win at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am over the weekend in hopes of replicating his old friend's success. "My entire career, Phil will probably attest to this, we've always looked at the board to figure where one another's at," Woods told ESPN's Bob Harig on Wednesday. "So, we've always had that type of enjoyment of competing against one another. And to see what he's done or to see what he did last year in Mexico at 47 years old gave me confidence that I could somehow do it, maybe last year. And I was able to finally end my season just like he did with a win.

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 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.

The 144-man field at Riviera has 88 players who have combined to win 496 times on the PGA Tour.Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson account for 25 percent of those victories.No one should be surprised.While too one-sided to be a rivalry, they have been a powerful one-two punch in golf. The same day Woods won his third straight U.S. Amateur right before he turned pro, Mickelson won the World Series of Golf at Firestone. Woods picked up his 80th career victory at the Tour Championship to end last season. Mickelson won his 44th at Pebble Beach on Monday. If anything raises eyebrows, it's that Mickelson believes their trophy collection will keep growing.
