'Lefty' is Right Again at Pebble PROFESSIONAL GOLF Maybe his nickname can be the 'Baron of Pebble Beach.' Phil Mickelson shot a final round 7-under 65 in early February to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, tying Mark 'The Prince of Pebble Beach' O'Meara's record of five titles at the event. Due to a heavy dose of 'Crosby Weather', the tournament finished Monday morning, with Mickelson and runner-up Paul Casey completing their final rounds. "This (Pebble Beach) really is a special place for me," said Mickelson, who at age 48 also became the oldest winner of the AT&T. "It's been a lot of work, but days like this make it worthwhile." In the Pro-Am portion of the event, Casey and amateur partner Don Colleran, the executive vice president of FedEx, won with a score of 34-under 253. AP
