Phil Mickelson thoroughly outplayed Tiger Woods on Sunday to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.  The two rivals were grouped together in Sunday’s final round, with Tiger starting the day in third place and Mickelson in fourth. Mickelson was on his game with a final-round 64 and Tiger was not, making five bogeys in a dismal round of 75 and falling into a tie for 15th place.

According to Mickelson’s wife, just finding out on Saturday night that he would be paired with Tiger was enough to get Phil all fired up. “I know he wanted that pairing, let’s put it that way,” said Amy Mickelson. “He loves to play with Tiger. They have a history. I’m sure Tiger wanted it too, or I would guess he did. They’re competitors. I think they enjoy it.”

“I love playing with [Tiger], and he brings out some of my best golf,” said Phil, who with Sunday’s victory became the ninth golfer to win 40 PGA Tour events. “I just seem more focused. I know that his level of play is so much greater when he’s playing his best than anybody else’s, that it just forces me to focus on my game more intently and hit more precise shots.

Tiger, of course, was far from his best on Sunday.  “It was frustrating,” said Tiger, who started the day four shots off the lead and has now gone a career-long 23 straight PGA Tour events without a win going back to 2009. “I was looking for two or three under though the first six or seven holes, and Phil is the one who got off to that start.”
