Wild finish for Mickelson, wet one for Spieth at Pebble

Wild finish for Mickelson, wet one for Spieth at Pebble Phil Mickelson survives a wild finish to his round of 4-under 68. Jordan Spieth endures the worst of the rain and hung on to join him atop the leaderboard until it was too wet to finish the second round Friday in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Mickelson made a 12-foot birdie on the fifth hole at Spyglass Hill, then got wild off the tee and made three straight bogeys. He birdied his last hole to reach 10-under par, joining Lucas Glover (66 at Pebble Beach) and Scott Langley (69 at Spyglass Hill). The rain was slow to arrive, but Spieth caught the brunt of it.

Big news dropped for PGA Tour golfers on Monday (and no, we’re not being sarcastic here): Players will be able to wear shorts for practice and pro-am rounds. That will allow players’ lower limbs to breath before they have to be put under pants again during tournaments.

Speaking of which. . . Phil Mickelson ’ s calves : Phil Mickelson apparently hasn’t been skipping the latter. Look at these sculpted beauties! With the West Coast Swing in the books, the PGA Tour heads south of the border for the WGC-Mexico Championship, AKA that event Phil won last year.

Big news dropped for PGA Tour golfers on Monday (and no, we're not being sarcastic here): Players will be able to wear shorts for practice and pro-am rounds.

That will allow players' lower limbs to breath before they have to be put under pants again during tournaments. Judging by the reaction by golfers to the breaking news (see below), it's a welcome rule change.

It's also a big deal for Phil Mickelson and fans of the left-handed golfer. Because we get to see his famously sculpted calves a lot more than we used to.

In fact, Mickelson tweeted this hours after the rule change became official:

The reaction was fantastic:

This isn't the first time Mickelson's legs turned heads:

Finally, here's some reaction from PGA Tour pros to the news:
