Casey can't catch Mickelson, finishes second at Pebble Beach

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Paul Casey’s bid to catch Phil Mickelson in Monday’s resumption of the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am began with a 3-foot putt for par.

That’s what he had left at the 16th hole when darkness fell Sunday, suspending play.

Casey made the putt in chilly 40-degree temperatures and chuckled.

“That’s one of the worst 3-footers I’ve had to hit,” Casey said.

It didn’t matter.

Casey, who lost the three-shot lead he had to start the final round, couldn’t make it up on Mickelson over those final two holes Monday morning.
