Pebble Beach: Phil Mickelson takes two-shot lead

February 12, 2012 | 11:41 am


Charlie Wi, four-putting the first hole for a double bogey in a display of nerves that left even Wi shrugging his shoulders, finally lost the lead he'd held since the first round with a bogey on the fifth hole at the AT&T Pebblle Beach National Pro-Am on Sunday at Pebble Beach.

And it is Phil Mickelson who is starring in a glamour pairing with Tiger Woods as Mickelson eagled No. 6 to take a two-shot lead over Wi, Woods and Kevin Streelman, who played the front nine in 31 shots.

Mickelson is at 14 under for the tournament. Woods, Streelman and Wi are at 12 under.

Woods, who missed three birdie putts within 10 feet early in the final round, birdied No. 6 in an effort to keep pace with Mickelson.

Three shots off the lead are Kevin Na and Ken Duke at 11 under while Ricky Barnes, Padraig Harrington and Dustin Johnson are at 10 under.
