Phil Mickelson’s 44th career PGA Tour victory came at the same event as four of his other wins, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Monday. Holding a three-shot lead with two holes to play, Mickelson stuffed a tee shot on the par-3 17th and made a birdie on the par-5 18th to outrun Paul Casey.
Mickelson’s 7-under par final round was the best round of the day — matched by Kevin Streelman — and featured seven birdies against no bogeys. Now with 44 wins on the PGA Tour, Mickelson is only one behind Walter Hagen for eighth-most all-time.
After trying out the new Callaway Epic Flash in Phoenix, Mickelson went back to his Rogue Sub Zero driver at the Clambake, and it paid off.

Despite a great day driving the ball at Monterey Peninsula C.C. on Thursday in which Phil hit all 13 fairways, his iron play was the portion of his game that took him above the rest. Mickelson picked just shy of seven shots on the field average over his two rounds at Pebble Beach to lead the field in strokes gained: approach to the green.
