How Many Wins Does Mickelson Have at Pebble Beach?
This marks Mickelson's fifth victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-AM. As we mentioned, with the U.S. Open returning to the famed Pebble Beach in June, Mickelson seems to have the inside track on this course and the momentum to finally take home the title and complete the career grand slam.
How Many Runner-Up Finishes Does Mickelson Have at the U.S. Open?
Mickelson has finished as the runner up six times at the U.S. Open. In 1999 at Pinehurst No. 2, 2002 at Bethpage Black, 2004 at Shinnecock Hills, 2006 at Winged Foot, 2009 again at Bethpage Black and 2013 at Merion.
At 48-years-old, Mickelson grabbed his 44th-career win and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down.
Yes, all of the young guns and Tiger Woods will be playing in the U.S. Open, many of whom have seen some form of success at Pebble Beach, but not many of them can match the motivation to get the win as Lefty should have.
At (+2400), there is some value on a guy who has every reason in the world to finally get the win. He's definitely someone to keep monitoring as the tournament approaches.
