The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am consists of six hour rounds that often take their toll on other golfers, but not Phil Mickelson. Always found in the top golf news stories, he actually enjoys the tournaments while admitting that patience is the key to success. It seems that golf news usually surrounds Mickelson and every turn he makes, but that's all a part of being one of the top professional golfers in the PGA and in the world. Many fond memories remain with Mickelson as he recounts previous Pro-Am competitions.
One such recollection includes celebrity saxophonist Kenny G, who was an amateur partner with Mickelson at one point. Of course, there are plenty of other reasons that would lend to his fondness of Pebble Beach, including the fact that he made his professional debut in 1992 at the U.S. Open and ended up winning the longest PGA Tour event in history after a rain delay that put the competition on hold for six months. In 2005, Mickelson enjoyed one of the best performances of his career as he played a 10-under 62 at Spyglass Hill in California. Known as the second most difficult course in Northern California, this is the site that led Mickelson to a memorable victory.
