PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Yes, Phil Mickelson likes what Monday’s victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am may portend for the U.S. Open’s return here this summer, but . . .
“All I'm focused on right now is the Masters,” Mickelson said. “That’s all that is in my mind, and what I'm thinking about. So this adds to my opportunity at Augusta, and that's kind of where I'm at right now mentally.”
That doesn’t mean he isn’t fully appreciating what winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a record-tying fifth time might mean in June. He’ll be trying to complete the career Grand Slam on one of his favorite venues.
