PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Phil Mickelson made a bid, but he could never get closer than two strokes on Sunday during the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Mickelson got to 10 under for the tournament when he made a 3-footer for birdie at the 10th hole. Steve Marino, at the time, was leading at 12 under. But Mickelson couldn’t go any lower, making two bogeys coming in on the way to a 71 and an 8-under finish.
Mickelson now has two top-10s in three starts as he heads to Los Angeles for the Northern Trust Open, which begins Thursday at historic Riviera Country Club. He also said after his round Sunday that he will play in the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship in two weeks.
