He trailed Paul Casey by three shots entering Sunday's play before Mother Nature poundered the course with an unprecedented hail storm and delayed play by more than two hours.
The victory, Mickelson's first since the WGC-Mexico Championship last March and first on US soil in six years, carries special significance for him. Before he won, he marked his 500th PGA Tour cut made on Friday.
Undoubtedly Mickelson will be the subject of considerable conjecture when the golf world returns to Pebble Beach in June for the 119th playing of the U.S. Open, the major that defines Lefty's bouts of futility more than anything. "We could finish 17, I could tee off on 18", Mickelson told official Mark Russell after he finished play at 16, with darkness descending.
His mistake-free round has included six birdies, but he will have to hold off Paul Casey, who is at 15 under and has three holes to play.
With light fading, Mickelson was keen to finish the round, saying: "I can see fine" but England's Casey opted not to putt on the 16th. "Sometimes I get in my little bubble and don't see the bigger picture". He won that summer's British Open at Muirfield and last year's Mexico Championship. He played the final 26 holes in cold, damp, and windy weather without a bogey. "This golf course, it looks very gettable [but] it can expose you". Casey had great par saves, and then Mickelson took off. And it is where he will turn 49 on the final day of the 2019 U.S. Open.
The four-time Pebble Beach victor nearly holed out from the ninth fairway to leave a tap-in birdie and complete a front-nine 33, before rolling in from 12 feet at the next to move into a share of the lead. We had a chance to come out today on fresh greens, better weather and being able to see a lot better. "But I totally get where he's coming from".
Whether it was continuing to be a part of U.S. Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup teams, finding a new workout routine, changing coaches, discovering a healthier diet, befriending - and needling - tour players who are young enough to be his son, Mickelson did his best to stay young.
