Mickelson finishes off win

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif.—With plenty of sunlight and no drama, Phil Mickelson finished off a seven-under 65 this morning to win the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and match the tournament record with his fifth victory.

Mickelson had a three-shot lead over Paul Casey with two holes to play when it was too dark too finish last night because of delays from rain and a hail storm.

Cold weather cuts electric car range

DETROIT—Cold temperatures can sap electric car batteries, temporarily reducing their range by more than 40 percent when interior heaters are used, a new study found.

“I think this is great,” Davis said yesterday as he walked down the 16th fairway.

“Because this is nothing like it will be [in] June.”

While the New England Patriots bested the L.A. Rams yesterday in Atlanta during Super Bowl 53, brands also were winning and losing off the field.
