Veteran left-hander Mickelson started his final round of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Sunday three shots off the lead but ended up sealing victory by as many strokes in a weather-delayed finale on Monday.

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, gunning for a 44th US PGA Tour title, was unfazed by the uncertainty.

His first one also was a Monday finish, when players returned in August - more than six months later - to finish the third round of the weather-plagued tournament to make it official. He played the final 26 holes in cold, damp, and windy weather without a bogey.

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

The victory, Mickelson's first since the WGC-Mexico Championship last March and first on USA soil in six years, carries special significance for him. "This golf course, it looks very gettable [but] it can expose you".

"It's been a great day so far (but) it's not over, we've got to finish it off", Mickelson said.

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

She added that Motown producer Berry Gordy and producers of the 61st annual show, were "thrilled" about her involvement. When the Grammys announced that tonight's show would include a tribute to the music of Motown , it was fitting.

The U.S. Open will be at Pebble Beach this year but Phil Mickelson does not think winning there on Monday will aid his Grand Slam chances.

Casey called Mickelson's effort "a phenomenal round of golf" but added: "It's not over yet". 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.

At 18, Mickelson put the ball in the fairway twice, and dropped his approach six feet from the cup to set up his final birdie putt. Mickelson's first goal is that fourth green jacket and he believes that even now, at the age of 48, he has the power and the putting touch to give McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and the rest a run for their money in eight weeks' time.

He just didn't want to stay another day.

"It's nothing like the course we'll see", Mickelson said. "In all honesty, it's a good thing to play the last two holes in fresh conditions".

With a total of five bedrooms and seven baths, four bedroom suites open to ocean-view terraces, including the master suite that includes a sitting room, glamorous marble bath and closets.

American Scott Stallings holds the clubhouse lead on 15 under after his six-under par 66, with Jason Day finished on 13 under, level with South Korea's Kim Si-woo.
