With plenty of sunlight and no drama, Phil Mickelson finished off a 7-under 65 to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Monday and match the tournament record with his fifth victory.

CBS will provide live coverage of the event via its website, with coverage starting at 11 a.m. ET and continuing until play is finished.

"We were not going to get 18 (holes) done; it's very dark and I couldn't see", Casey said. Before he won, he marked his 500th PGA Tour cut made on Friday.

"There's still a glimmer", Casey said of his chances.

"So at the end of previous 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.

Phil Mickelson was not happy at having to return on Tuesday to play the final two holes after bad light stopped play.

Mickelson had not won on United States soil since the 2013 Phoenix Open. I'm hitting drivers and trying to bomb it down there and hit wedges in, and the rough will be so different and the greens will be so firm it will be a whole different golf course.

"As much as I would like to finish, it's probably a good thing", Mickelson said.

The Portrush man turns 39 in July and while he lost his PGA Tour card a year ago and must rely in invitations to fill out his schedule, he wants desperately to be at Royal Portrush for The Open.

Mickelson began by calmly knocking his tee shot on the par-three 17th to inside 10 feet and Casey followed suit, but when the 41-year-old failed to sink an eight-footer for birdie his hopes of snatching the win were effectively ended. Before long, the greens were filled with tiny pellets, and workers went from using squeegees for excess water to power blowers to remove the hail.

The four-time Pebble Beach victor nearly holed out from the ninth fairway to leave a tap-in birdie and complete a front-nine 33, before rolling in from 12 feet at the next to move into a share of the lead.

He just didn't want to stay another day. "I wanted to keep going", Mickelson said.

"The name of the game is you've got to make putts and you've got to roll it", Woods said after the second round, according to ESPN. He birdied five of the first seven holes in a bogey-free round.

American Scott Stallings is third at 14 under, while South Korea's Si Woo Kim and Scott Langley are a shot back.
