It’s the “new” new Phil. A slimmed-down, rejuvenated Phil who went about his work on a calm Sunday afternoon at the Pebble Beach Golf Links with the precision of a brain surgeon.
The result was a tidy 66 and record-tying 20 under total for Mickelson’s third career victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Kevin Sutherland finished second five strokes back.
If you didn’t see it, the numbers tell the story:
Driving distance: 4
Driving accuracy: T4
Greens in regulation (GIR): T1
Putts per GIR: 1
Nice playing by older guys Davis Love, Corey Pavin and Tom Watson.
This week: Nissan Open at Riviera in Los Angeles.
