In the final round of the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Phil Mickelson carded seven birdies and managed to go bogey-free during play on Sunday and Monday to snag his eighth win at Pebble Beach. Casey's 16-under total left him three behind Mickelson and one shot ahead of Scott Stallings, who completed a final-round 66 before sunset Sunday.

Mickelson closed out the victory in style, with a birdie on the iconic par-5 18th hole, closing out a 7-under 65 to finish at 19 under for the tournament.

Mickelson returned to Pebble Beach Golf Links bright and early to close out his record-tying fifth A&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am victory, holding off Paul Casey in the weather-delayed finish to the PGA Tour event.

"It's been a very special week for me and this is a very special place to me", Mickelson said afterward.

"I thanked Paul this morning for letting us finish today", Mickelson said Monday of the delayed finish.

But the current death toll is believed to be the deadliest outbreak since a similar case killed 172 in West Bengal in 2011. Twenty-two people were admitted to hospitals in Saharanpur but were in stable condition, Pandey said.

Casey finished with a birdie that was worth $152,000 because he wound up alone in second place.

But Casey told GolfChannel.com that he "genuinely" couldn't see. Casey and FedEx executive Don Colleran had a one-shot lead in the pro-am. "Sometimes I get in my little bubble and don't see the big picture".

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

As for that "longest event in PGA Tour history", it's a mark that seems destined to stand. Mickelson won at the course for the first time in 1998 and the tournament was suspended for six months because of a several days of poor weather on the Monterey Peninsula. He won that summer's British Open at Muirfield and last year's Mexico Championship. "I totally get where he's coming from", he told reporters Sunday. He preferred to suspend play with his ball on the 16th green, resuming the tournament on Monday when the greens, which took a beating from rain Saturday night and an impressive hailstorm Sunday, would be fresh. "I have pretty good vision, I'm playing well and I wanted to continue".

Jason Day closed with a 68 and was tied for fourth at 13-under 175 with Si Woo Kim (68).
