Mickelson Erases 6-Shot Deficit in 6 Holes: Phil Mickelson turned a six-shot deficit into a two-shot lead in only six holes at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Sunday, winning over third round leader Charlie Wi. In the second-to-last group with Tiger Woods, Mickelson ended up beating him by 11 shots. Woods shot a final-round 75, worse than his amateur playing partner Tony Romo. "In one of the most shocking rounds we've seen from him since his first-round implosion at the 2011 PGA Championship, Woods completely lost it at Pebble Beach," writes Jonathan Wall of Yahoo's Devil Ball Golf.

I watched that as someone who is fan of Tiger's hoping he'd win and who doesn't particularly care for Mickelson, but I couldn't help rooting for him. I don't think it was necessarily one for the ages but it sure was impressive.

The recent trend is that Phil owns Tiger in these final round match ups, however, I was still surprised to see the level at which this was true on Sunday. Phil excelled, Tiger fell apart.
