Another big win for Mickelson
PEBBLE and that BEACH, Calif. — Phil Mickelson took all the thrills out of Pebble Beach, was just fine by him.
Despite back-to-back bogeys that gave the final round Sunday about five minutes of intrigue, Mickelson won for the second straight week by closing with a 1over 73 to become the first wire-to-wire winner in the 68-year history of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
The only thing he didn’t do on a cold, damp day along the Pacific was set the tournament scoring record. Mickelson finished at 19-under 269, missing by one shot the record set seven years ago by Mark O’Meara.
Still, it was the first time in his career he had won in consecutive weeks. Even more alarming is the margin of victory, especially for a guy who usually keeps it entertaining to the very end.
He won by five shots last week in Phoenix and wound up winning Pebble by four shots over Mike Weir.
Going into this year, Mickelson had won his previous eight PGA Tour events by a combined nine shots, three of those in playoffs.
