PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Jordan Spieth is in, Phil Mickelson is still out.
That’s the unofficial projected update for the WGC-Mexico Championship field in two weeks.
Spieth’s hard-closing 5-under-par 67 Sunday earned him a two-way tie for ninth at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. That’s expected to be good enough to move him among the top 50 in Sunday evening’s release of the newest Official World Golf Ranking, which would earn him a spot in the first World Golf Championships event of the calendar year.
Mickelson? He needed to make that last 8-foot putt for birdie at Pebble Beach’s 18th hole Sunday to crack the top 50.
