PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Phil Mickelson bogeyed the 18th Saturday at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
He three putted from 28 feet at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
The iconic par 5 was another birdie chance gone awry for Mickelson. It was like losing two shots to co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Ted Potter Jr.
Instead of starting three shots back Sunday, Mickelson will start five back.

It’s been a strange week for Mickelson, because that closing bogey was his first since Thursday morning, his first over his last 47 holes. He has been playing well, and yet he knows he has squandered chances that could have left him so much less work in the final round.
There have been a lot of birdie chances that haven’t ended up in the bottom of the hole.
“I had a lot of opportunities I let slide,” Mickelson said. “I hit a lot of good shots. … I probably let three or four shots slide that would have moved me right up the leaderboard.”
Mickelson has won this event four times.
“I have a shot tomorrow with a good, hot round,” he said.
