Rarely was it rough going for Phil Mickelson in the final round, when Lefty -- despite this choppy moment -- shot a bogey-free 64 to come from six strokes down to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and become the ninth player to reach 40 PGA Tour victories.

Mickelson's putting was clutch all day. He made two long par putts on the back nine that ended up being essential to his two-stroke victory.

Woods did have some positives to take away from Pebble Beach. He began the tournament with three rounds in the 60s to put himself in contention to win again.

A more outgoing Woods shared a laugh with Mackay, but he wasn't happy after his round. "All I had to do was get off to a good, solid start today. And I didn't do that,'' Woods said.
