From ESPN: Phil Mickelson rallied from six shots behind to win for the fourth time at Pebble Beach, a final round made even more memorable by the guy in a red shirt who was among the first to congratulate him Sunday on the 18th green.
Turns out that Tiger Woods was just along for the ride.
Mickelson closed with an 8-under 64, beating Woods by 11 shots in a one-sided showdown at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
"I just feel very inspired when I play with him," said Mickelson, who has posted the better score the past five times he has played alongside Woods in the final round.
"I love playing with him, and he brings out some of my best golf. I hope that he continues to play better, and better, and I hope that he and I have a chance to play together more in the final rounds."
Woods, one shot out of the lead on the sixth hole after 54-hole leader Charlie Wi fell apart early, followed his first birdie of the final round with three straight bogeys, starting with a three-putt from 18 feet on the par-3 seventh.
It never got much better from there.
He finished a miserable day with another three-putt on the 18th for a 75, the only consolation coming from belief that he's closer than ever to putting it all together. http://espn.go.com/golf/story/_/id/7568923/phil-mickelson-roars-tiger-woods-win-pebble-beach
Phil Mickelson just trounced Woods today, beating him by 11 strokes, almost 1 stroke a hole. Wood's score is almost like he played me- he probably played about 11-15 strokes better than me, when I play my best.
Tiger Woods is showing that he is now, just an average pro golfer and that golfers are not afraid of him now and he will not beat Jack Nicklaus's all time record of Grand Slam wins.
Just like Whitney Houston threw away her career with drugs, Woods threw away his career because of his infidelity. Women and their temptations have taken down many important men because some men are so weak when it comes to the fairer sex. Woods is just another "victim" of the fairer sex trap.
And no, Woods is not close to putting it all together.
