Mickelson wins the AT & T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Phil Mickelson easily won the AT & T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am by five strokes. His children, Amanda and Sophia, raced out to embrace their dad after he captured the title. Mickelson had the low round of the day with a 66 (Matt Kuchar, tied for sixth place, and Ryan Moore, tied for 19th place, also shot 66 today). He also won Pebble Beach in 1998 and 2005 and matched the tournament record. It was his 30th career win.

"I've had a great week. To come out on top, to start 2007 out right .. I can't wait for next week. I can't wait for some of the majors," Mickelson said in post-interviews. "I knew I needed to work on my driving. That's what helped me win this week, I drove the ball really well."

Mickelson's grandfather used to caddy at the course when he was eleven years old. A golf fan had a picture of Mickelson's grandfather and his brother and sent it to Mickelson.

Kevin Sutherland took second place.

John Mallinger, finished in third place and was 14 under for the week, "I took some stuff from this week and, hopefully, I'm going to grow." He hit the ball nicely all week. "My putting was so-so, but I played great all week."

Mickelson and his partner, Harry You, also won the Pro-Am. Tom Watson and his son took second place in the Pro-Am competition.
Vijay Singh is now at the top of the FedEx Cup leader board. Phil Mickelson is in seventh place. Tiger Woods, with only one event, is in eighth place.
