Play Suspended at Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2019

Don't spike this Rule 13.1c proving handy at Pebble Beach

Phil Mickelson has admitted he held back emotion during the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the weekend to avoid annoying Paul Casey.

Instead, he had to return early Monday morning to complete his 44th PGA Tour victory, claiming a fifth AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am while also becoming the eighth-oldest victor in PGA Tour history.

He drilled a 7-iron into eight feet on the par-3 17th and made par, and then played conservatively up the par-5 18th and finished with a 6ft birdie for a three-shot victory.

I also think Casey's request to play the final two holes on Monday morning was the right one if fading light meant that it would be impossible to conclude on Sunday evening.

However, Mickelson said Monday's win was irrelevant because the course will be completely different in June from the soggy, lush layout that greeted the players during the Californian winter.

The American is on 18 under with two holes left to play, with playing partner Paul Casey on 15 under.

However, the 5-time Major victor hasn't been as animated on the golf course as usual, and he revealed that's down to his personal relationship with Casey. The greens were beat up (on Sunday).

Renault's R.S.19 won't be seen until next week, when pre-season testing kicks off in Barcelona, although the digital renderings seen here are a first draft look at the team's 2019 vehicle .

It was a decision Mickelson clearly disagreed with, visibly shaking his head when the horn blew to officially halt play. "I don't want to put Paul in a bad spot".

"It's been a treat this week", said Casey, who had entered this week with two weeks of rest after a tie for second at the Singapore Open on the Japan Tour.

Casey finished with a birdie that was worth US$152,000 (NZ$225,000) because he wound up alone in second place.

The victory, Mickelson's first since the WGC-Mexico Championship last March and first on US soil in six years, carries special significance for him.

Asked in a greenside interview what the performance did for his confidence, Mickelson said: "Absolutely nothing, because it's nothing like the course we'll see". We had a chance to come out today on fresh greens, better weather and being able to see a lot better. "The rough will be so deep and the greens will be so fast, it will be a totally different course".

"I've written down a goal of winning L.A (the Genesis Open) and I had a very good chance of winning this one". I would love nothing more than to add to it five months from now, but that's so far down the road. Sometimes I just get in my own little bubble and I don't see the big picture and I just wanted to finish. This time, he closed with a 71 and lost to Mickelson's 65, which matched the low score of the final round.
