The tournament was played alongside a men's event. Cold, wet weather that produced a hailstorm forcing a two-plus hour delay derailed his momentum.
"I'm looking forward to getting back at it at Bay Hill", Day said. A frightful tee-shot was followed by a chip that failed to find the green and a third that wasn't much better and after a fast start, which had seen him birdie the first two holes and three of the first five, and following a run of 11 straight pars, the 38-year-old Aussie missed his bogey attempt and tapped in for a double-bogey five.
"It means a lot to me to play the final round as focused and as well as I did", said Mickelson, who started the final round three strokes behind Casey. This could open the floodgates for Law, while David Drysdale's tie for fifth place made it a very good week for Scottish players in Victoria.
"Here I'm trying to hit the ball as far as I can, not anxious too much about the rough, balls plugging and we're able to clean it".
"There's still a glimmer", said Casey said of his chances, who was level par for his round when play was suspended.
Jennifer Lopez Defends Heavily Criticized Grammys Motown Tribute
Once you take a look at JLo's health regimen, you can see she shouldn't have any trouble keeping up pace traveling the country. Speaking to the confusion behind her involvement in the tribute, Lopez said, "The thing about music is that it inspires all".
"So at the end of previous year, even though I played poorly, I had something happen where it seemed like overnight - it had really been in the works - where my driver speed shot up 5, 6 miles an hour, which rarely ever happens to anybody, let alone somebody in their late 40s", he said. Mickelson marked his ball all week with a silver coin given to him by his grandfather, Al Santos, one of the original caddies at Pebble Beach in 1919. The old rule of thumb of backing Phil repeatedly until the US Masters has paid off again and the icing on the cake was laying Casey at odds-on too with a round to go.

Will Lefty finally bag a US Open?
Phil Mickelson does not believe heading to this year's U.S. Open with a win at Pebble Beach already in the bag increases his chances of completing a long-awaited Grand Slam. He has gone 28 years since his first PGA Tour victory and his 44th, and he joined Tiger Woods as the only players to surpass $90 million in career earnings. Mickelson has been runner-up at the U.S. Open six times in his career and finished fourth the last time the tournament was at Pebble Beach, in 2010.
"But (coming back) is a good thing; we'll play the last couple holes in flawless conditions".
Day earned a top-five finish at the US PGA Tour event on California's famed Monterey Peninsula but admits an uncharacteristically cold putter let him down. I'll be back tomorrow with the previews.
