“Pebble Beach – it feels awesome no matter what number it is,” Mickelson said.
Woods just fell apart.
“I didn’t hit it as bad as the score indicated, but I putted awful,” Woods said. “As good as I felt on the greens yesterday, I felt bad today. Anything I tried to do wasn’t working. Consequently, I made a ton of mistakes on the green.”
When asked how he felt after his win Mickelson said, “It feels just amazing. I felt like my game was there, but coming out the first couple of weeks, I posted some horrendous scores and started to question it. To be able to play the way I did the last 18 holes really means a lot.”
Mickelson will now move to No. 11 in the world finishing at 17-under 269 and earned $1.152 million for his first win since the Houston Open last year.
