PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) Phil Mickelson has that winning feeling again. He's a winner on the PGA Tour for the 30th time in his career, but for the first time since his 18th hole collapse at the U.S. Open seven months ago. Mickelson birdied 6-of the first 11-holes to break out of a tie and win the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in a runaway. Mickelson fired a 6-under 66 to finish the 20-under par. That was 5-shots in front of Kevin Sutherland. Rookie John Mallinger finished third at 14 under.

The three were briefly tied for the lead early in the round, before Mickelson started to pull away.

Both Sutherland and Mallinger shot final-round 71s.
