Phil Mickelson leads as play suspended at Pebble Beach
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am will finish on Monday due to darkness, with Phil Mickelson in the lead.
The American moved to 18 under for a three shot cushion over third round leader Paul Casey, who is tied for second with Scott Stallings on 15 under, the latter of which has finished his round.
Mickelson surged to the lead following six birdies and no bogeys in his 16 holes, before the darkness set in late on Sunday. Earlier in the day, there was a one hour delay to the start of play then another two hour break for a hail storm. California is not for sissies.

“I’ve got two difficult holes coming up and it’s been a great day so far,” said the veteran.
“I love playing this tournament, but I think the postponement is a good omen because the first time I won here was ’98. We had a…suspension of the tournament, came back and finished the final round and I had my first victory here.”
Casey, Mickelson’s playing partner, stumbled mid round ending a string of pars with back-to-back bogeys on the 11th and 12th. But a birdie on the 14th has given the Englishman hope.
“There’s still a glimmer,” said the 41-year-old.
“I need to do something special.”
Further down the leaderboard, former world number one Jason Day and rising South Korean star Si Woo Kim finished tied for fourth on 13 under.
