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.

Mickelson was keen to finish despite darkness approaching on Sunday, but Casey opted to mark his ball on the 16th green and the Englishman brushed in the three-foot par putt first thing on Monday to send the event to its final two holes.

Scott Stallings, who took the clubhouse lead on Sunday by getting to 15 under, was third, with Jason Day and Kim Si-woo tied for fourth at 13 under. It's where his grandfather, Al Santos, was among the first caddies when the course opened in 1919, and Mickelson still uses as a marker the 1900 silver dollar his grandfather kept in his pocket to remind him he was not poor. Casey and FedEx executive Don Colleran had a one-shot lead in the pro-am. "But I'll deal with that in [four] months".

Mickelson was standing on the 17th tee when he heard the horn sound to stop play, and he shook his head.

"I was coming here this week with a little trepidation", said McDowell, who does not get to join McIlroy or Seamus Power in Los Angeles for this week's Genesis Open and will be playing in opposite field Puerto Rico Open next week rather than the $2.25 million WGC Mexico Championship.

He also became the oldest-ever PGA victor at the famed California coastal layout.

Taylor Swift Supports Joe Alwyn After BAFTAs 2019 | Joe Alwyn, Taylor Swift
Alwyn, 27, walked the red carpet alone but linked up with the 29-year-old singer at an afterparty, witnesses on social media said. If you don't know, Joe hit the red carpet at the 2019 BAFTAs earlier in the evening without Taylor .

He believes power and the short game are the keys at the Masters and Pebble Beach confirmed not just that he's on track to contend at Augusta, but that there's hope for golf's 40-somethings, including Tiger Woods.

The American is on 18 under with two holes left to play, with playing partner Paul Casey on 15 under.

Casey has never won in three previous times he had a 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour, all of them by two shots or more, and he was holding his own against the relentless pursuit of Mickelson, who missed three straight birdie putts from the 12-foot range by the slimmest margins.

And while the fairway lines already have been cut much tighter at Pebble, the conditions were so soft that balls plugged in the fairway when they landed and greens easily held shots even from the rough. Officials chose to complete play Monday, a decision that CBS's Gary McCord said had Mickelson "fuming". "This golf course, it looks very gettable [but] it can expose you". Mickelson poured it on, showing his skills have not deteriorated a bit at age 48, controlling spin beautifully to back pin positions.

"I thank Paul for having us come back out here this morning", Mickelson said. This time, he closed with a 71 and lost to Mickelson's 65, which matched the low score of the final round.
