Pebble Beach Notebook: ‘New’ New Phil Wins Easily

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:

Mickelson Stats
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.

Sure enough. Now if he can sustain a high-level of play through the season we may have something ... a rivalry.
