The final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was delayed Sunday by the kind of weather that once gave this event its reputation, including a hail storm that covered the greens in white.
Golfers, caddies and spectators raced for cover Sunday when hail began to pelt the course at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Phil Mickelson was closing in on a fifth win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California when play was suspended due to darkness. All four players return to Pebble along with numerous game's best, including Jordan Spieth, Tony Finau and Jason Day. Casey said there was no way to finish and they had to return Monday morning.
Both Mickelson and Casey are expected to make the short trip down the California coast to Los Angeles for this week's Genesis Open, where tournament host Tiger Woods headlines a field that will also include seven of the top 10 players in the world. In second is Scott Stallings, who sits at -15 and has finished his tournament.
"So at the end of past year, even though I played poorly, I had something happen where it seemed like overnight - it had really been in the works - where my driver speed shot up 5, 6 miles an hour, which rarely ever happens to anybody, let alone somebody in their late 40s", he said. "Let's play 17 and see how it goes".
As for that "longest event in PGA Tour history", it's a mark that seems destined to stand. Mickelson won at the course for the first time in 1998 and the tournament was suspended for six months because of a several days of poor weather on the Monterey Peninsula. He won the British Open that summer in Scotland, and the Mexico Championship a year ago.
Google Maps Starts Testing AR-Powered Navigation

Paul Casey had a three-shot lead over Phil Mickelson.
Mickelson had no problems with Casey's decision.
"It's dark and we have a chance to come out on Monday on fresh greens".
After a rain-delayed start, Mickelson had produced a blemish-free round and holed six birdies to move to 18 under before play was called off. I have good vision, I can see fine and I wanted to continue.
"I get where Paul is coming from", Mickelson said.
Jason Day closed with a 68 and was tied for fourth at 13-under 175 with Si Woo Kim (68).
