Australia's Jason Day is battling to stay in touch with leaders Paul Casey and Phil Mickelson during the final round at the weather-delayed Pebble Beach Pro Am.

Forget the pain of those six US Open runner-up finishes.

Now a victor at that level, his tour card is safe for two years, which will give him a completely different outlook.

"I've written down a goal of winning L.A. and I had an outside chance of winning this one - I had a very good chance of winning this one", Casey said.

I didn't get involved before the event Down Under and my three in-play picks all drew a blank but the AT&T worked out very nicely.

"I have such great memories here, I would love to add to it". But that's so far down the road.

"All I'm focused on is the Masters. That's where I am right now mentally".

Hale Irwin, who won the 1990 edition of the US Open at 45 years and 15 days old, is the oldest US Open victor to date so the stats are really against Phil Mickelson, who turns 49 on the Sunday of this year's edition. "But I totally get where he's coming from".

"My putting is the best it's been in my 28-year career, and my swing speed is as fast as it's ever been".

The trial testimony lasted almost three months and the jurors have were tasked with deciding on 10 separate counts. The defense has accused prosecution cooperators of making him a scapegoat for their own crimes.

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.

"It's been a lot of work - bio-mechanic swing studies, taking weaknesses and making them strengths, time in the gym - but days like this make it worthwhile".

He was at his best at Pebble Beach, and no one had a chance. "I wish we could do it tonight".

Day has picked up two shots through 14 holes of his final round to climb to 11 under, sharing sixth place but five shots behind Casey. "We weren't going to get 18 done".

This was a fantastic win for the 27-year-old, a protege of fellow Aberdonian and former Open champion Paul Lawrie.

"So at the end of past year, even though I played poorly, I had something happen where it seemed like overnight - it had really been in the works - where my driver speed shot up 5, 6 miles an hour, which rarely ever happens to anybody, let alone somebody in their late 40s", he said. "I get sometimes in my own little bubble, and I don't see the big picture".

"My game is definitely there; I just need to put four rounds together and if I can, I will definitely win. So to come and play this solidly this week, was really pleasing".
