Mickelson leads as play suspended at Pebble Beach

Rain hail delays final round at Pebble Beach

Rain hail delays final round at Pebble Beach

Mickelson at least wanted to try.

"I can see fine", Mickelson said behind the green, with Russell in the middle of the discussion with Casey.

"It's not over. We've got to finish it off, so I don't want to jump the gun and look ahead".

"I genuinely couldn't see my putt there on 16", Casey said.

Three down to Casey at the start of the day, Mickelson was three shots up and had just holed out for par at the 16th when play was suspended.

Mickelson needs to get through one more day and two more holes if he's to make tournament history and further enhance his World Golf Hall of Fame career. "We had a three-month suspension of the tournament, came back and finished the final round, and I had my first victory here".

Mickelson made his big run starting with a 9-iron to a foot behind the cup on the par-4 ninth.

"I didn't make anything". "Phil has put together a spectacular round of golf so far - 6 under, no dropped shots".

Canadiens play host to Leafs
Andersen made 25 saves in the December win over the Rangers and has won his last three starts against them. Ennis suffered a broken ankle in a game against the New York Rangers on December 22.

Englishman Paul Casey started the round at 15 under, three strokes clear of Phil Mickelson.

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

It also would be his first victory on American soil since the Phoenix Open six years ago.

The changing nature of the elements is a part of the event's character, and in the first three rounds, professionals, celebrities and amateurs were confronted with mist, rain, heavy winds and bone-rattling temps.

PGA Tour tournament organisers resumed play on Sunday at 1pm (local time) as greenkeepers frantically cleared the hail and excess water from the greens and fairways using blowers and brooms.

Golfers, caddies and spectators raced for cover Sunday when hail began to pelt the course at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

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. On Monday, Casey said he'll be hard pressed to keep Mickelson from his 44 title.

"I have pretty good vision", Mickelson said. "And in all honesty, it's probably a good thing, because now we'll play the last couple holes in pure conditions and it will be helpful for us both". He three-putted the 18th trying to finish, jacking a 20-foot putt about 7 feet past the hole, and then missing that and making a costly bogey.
