Phil Mickelson did it.

Though Brandt Snedeker tried to give Lefty a run for his money, it ended up not being close. Mickelson finished with a -28, four strokes better than the next competitor. He only had one Bogey, and that was early in the round. It could have been a bad omen for Mickelson, however he took it like a professional and finished out the round with a -5.

It was not close to being his best round of the tourney of course, but it was more than enough to claim his victory. Snedeker finished with a  -6 on the day. He claimed second place, and has been played very well. He is consistently finishing in the top ten, and will continue to grow his prestige. He has done very well for himself thus far in 2013.

Mickelson was hesitant to comment on his future tournament dates.  It is likely that he will reel his schedule a bit, so that he can be fresh when the majors occur. You really can not blame him however, after all he is in his 4o’s.

It was a great victory for the San Diego native.

Next week, we will bring you the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from Pebble Beach, California.
