2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Saturday play live blog

2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Saturday play live blog Here is a live blog covering the PGA Tour golf AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am from play on Saturday.

Phil Mickelson and the remainder of the field chasing him will resume play in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Monday at 11 a.m. Eastern time.

Mickelson stands at 18-under and leads Paul Casey and Scott Stallings by three shots with two holes to play.

As daylight faded above and around the Monterey Peninsula Sunday, Mickelson quickened his pace of play.

"We could finish 17, I could tee off on 18," Mickelson said while lobbying official Mark Russell after completing the 16th hole. "Let's play 17 and see how it goes. I can see fine."

Casey wanted to stop play with his ball on the 16th green and conclude in Monday daylight after the greens would be repaired and revived.

Lefty, who had moved on to No. 17, was not happy when the horn sounded.

Casey's ball was on the 16th green, about four feet from the hole. He'll play that shot when the horn sounds Monday.

"I get what Paul's saying," Mickelson said. "Why hit a four-footer when you get a freshly mowed green. The greens are pretty rough right now."

When Mickelson won at Pebble Beach for the first time in 1998, the event was suspended for six months due to multiple days' worth of bad weather. Officials gave up on Feb. 2 and play resumed and concluded on Aug. 17.

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.
