California Hailstorm Delays Final Round of Pebble Beach Pro-Am Golf Tournament

The final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was delayed Sunday by the kind of weather that once gave this event its reputation, including a hail storm that covered the greens in white.

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.

A rain delay and bad light forced Mickelson and Casey to return on Monday and the 48-year-old retained his three-shot lead to seal glory at the site of this year's U.S. Open - the only major he is yet to win and has finished as runner-up in six times. After Casey rolled in a short par putt on the 16th green upon resumption of play, both men parred the par-3 17th to afford Mickelson an easy stroll up one of the most scenic fairways in golf.

Mickelson wanted to try and finish Sunday, but neither Casey nor the solar system was willing to go along.

"It's been a very special week for me and this is a very special place to me". Along with an outside chance at forcing a playoff, finishing alone in second instead of a tie is a difference of $152,000, along with world ranking points and FedEx Cup points.

Casey returned to knock in a four-foot putt to save par at the 16th and leave the pair separated by three heading to the par-three 17th, where both fired tee shots to within eight feet of the flag.

Victory was sealed by Mickelson with a gain on the iconic par-five 18th, completing a seven-under 65 to finish on 19 under for the tournament. He won that summer's British Open at Muirfield and last year's Mexico Championship.

After his 9-iron into a foot at No. 9 to get within one shot, Mickelson holed a 12-foot birdie on the 10th with a drive that hugged the right side of the fairway and likely would have bounced into the ocean if not for conditions so soft from rain that balls plugged where they landed.

He just didn't want to stay another day. "We had a chance to come out today on fresh greens, better weather and be able to see a lot better".

"I get where Paul is coming from", Mickelson said. Jason Day and Si Woo Kim tied for fourth place (13 under), rounding out the top five.
