The television cameras surprised Mickelson and Casey talking to the tournament officials about whether they would stop playing or try to keep playing despite the sun falling on Pebble Beach. In addition to current golf, the ongoing exchanges between Mickelson and Casey have created a fascinating visual experience.
Phil Mickelson says "I can see" a few moments after Paul Casey said it was too dark to see his top
Good for Paul Casey, insisting that it was too dark to continue. Mickelson did his best to work his muscles and keep playing, but Casey exercised his right to stop. They will be back tomorrow morning at 8 am, and Casey will play at number 16. Mickelson leads by three @attproam
Phil Mickelson was doing his best to finish the tournament. A player smaller than Casey could have felt obliged to continue and be fair if he had kept his pro-am partner.
The weather did not cooperate on Sunday, a hail storm caused a significant delay and led to the suspension. According to San Francisco Chronicleof Ron Kroichickthe storm itself lasted only 10 minutes, which was more than enough to cause chaos. The greens soaked with hail made a surreal scene.
As a result, things deteriorated further after night rushes forced tournament officials to start the final round an hour later than planned. As a result, there was little chance that the entire group would finish the round before darkness became a factor.
Nobody will be more disappointed with the suspension than Mickelson, who was riding Sunday while Casey was in the standings.
Casey had a three-shot lead over Mickelson on 54 holes, with Lucas Glover and Scott Piercy tied for third place and four shots back.
His round started pretty well when he managed a birdie on the second hole to go to 16 under. Casey got stuck there for the rest of the first nine, which opened the door for Mickelson. Back-to-back bogeys for Casey at the 11th and 12th holes then put him in a draw for second place.
Mickelson, on the other hand, is slowly closing the gap. He went around and opened the last nine with a birdie at No. 10. The hole was a perfect example of how everything broke in favor of the five-time winner.
His training seemed to hang right but still land on the fairway to keep him on track for the birdie.
Lefty lives on the edge.
What a bird, PhilMickelson. 👏
Mickelson opened a little more leeway on Casey with birdies on numbers 13 and 14.
Mickelson essentially has a hand on the title at this point, but stopping the game allows Casey to keep some hope. Although the odds are slim, Mickelson would throw a three-shot lead in just two holes, it's not mathematically impossible.
Casey is probably the only golfer to pose a threat to Mickelson.
Scott Stallings went six sous on Sunday to reach 15 cents for the tournament, putting him tied for second place. Stallings has already finished his last round, so he will have to sit at the clubhouse while Mickelson and Casey complete.
