Mickelson, Casey book Monday PGA finish

Wade Ormsby, a pre-tournament [80.0] chance, hit a low of [1.18] during the fourth and final round of the ISPS Handa Vic Open on the European Tour yesterday but long odds-on players got their fingers well and truly burnt. Jimmy Demaret rolled out of his bed at the Lodge, looked at the 18th green and said, "I know I had a lot to drink last night. but how did I end up in Squaw Valley?" He played the final 26 holes in cold, damp, and windy weather without a bogey. Cold, wet weather that produced a hailstorm forcing a two-plus hour delay derailed his momentum.

The 48-year-old American picked up three strokes in his first nine holes, then three more coming home to put him in pole position for the Monday finish. All of a sudden, Ormsby needed an eagle of his own just to tie.

Making it even more special is Pebble Beach, where he made his pro debut at the US Open in 1992, where he won the first of his five titles in another Monday finish in 1998, this one in August because of rain.

Phil Mickelson had to wait an extra day to finish off his win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Monday.

At 18-under-par and with a three-shot lead, a frustrated Mickelson wanted to race through the par-3 17th and par-5 18th despite Englishman Casey admitting he couldn't see.

Phil Mickelson won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am by three strokes on Monday, equalling Mark O'Meara's record of five victories in the storied northern California event. I was very appreciative of that.

Broncos to trade for quarterback Joe Flacco
The trade can not become official until March 13, so by league rules, the Broncos can not publicly talk about the move until then. The Ravens have reportedly struck a deal to send QB Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, according to industry reports.


I've received stick for years for backing Mickelson repeatedly in tournaments he likes but it's paid off yet again and I've already backed him for this week's Genesis Open too. "We weren't going to get 18 done". That was in 1998, when rain soaked the Monterey Peninsula in February, and the PGA Tour made a decision to play the third round the day after the PGA Championship ended up the Pacific coast at Sahalee. The US Open remains the final piece missing for him to complete the career Grand Slam, though Lefty was quick to caution that this week had no bearing on this summer.

Mickelson finished with a 7-under 65 to win the tourney, matching the tournament record with his fifth victory. He's traded at odds-on on numerous occasions but his biggest fail came at Winged Foot 13 years ago. In fact, he's finished second six times.

"But (coming back) is a good thing; we'll play the last couple holes in ideal conditions". I'll be back tomorrow with the previews.
