Mickelson crushes Tiger and wins Pebble Beach February 12 2012

Neither a six-shot deficit at the start of the final round, or having to play alongside Tiger Woods troubled Phil Mickelson as he fired a last round -8 under par 64 to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.  Mickelson stomped his playing partner and calmly and coolly raced by everyone else to win on a damp, soggy Sunday by the Pacific Ocean. Phil was delighted with his effort; "It feels just amazing.  I felt my game was right there at the start of the year but I came out and just shot some horrendous scores. I finally played like I thought I was going to play like this year. This has been a really big week for me for a number of reasons, but it does give me a lot of confidence in my game because I've known that I've been practicing well; that I physically feel terrific, that I'm able to practice hard, work hard and yet when I get off the course, I wasn't shooting the scores. You have to perform on the course and I haven't been doing that, and so it gave me some doubt, and this week erases doubt."   Tiger Woods, who started the day in third, looked lethargic throughout, and didn't look anything like his old self during a three-hole bogey stretch mid-round, and fell all the way down into a tie for 15th with a 75. Tiger said about his day and his missing five putts from inside 5  feet ; "I didn't hit it as bad as the score would indicate but I just putted horrible. Anything I tried to do wasn't working, as a result, I made too many mistakes on the greens. Phil played really good today. He was hitting it flush, and his wedge game was right on the money. Every shot that he had a wedge in there, he hit it inside 10 feet. What was frustrating was that I had a chance and all I had to do was get off to a good, solid start and I didn't do that. Phil was 5-under through six. It was the kind of start I was looking for. At the start of the day I thought I'd have to shoot 67 to win, and it wouldn't have been enough." Charlie Wi became the third player in the last three tournaments, who was trying for his first Tour win, to lose a big 54-hole lead. Charlie began by  four-putting the first green from 35 feet but fought back to salvage a 72, and a total of -15, two shots off the lead.
