Phil Mickelson was closing in on a fifth win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California when play was suspended due to darkness.

The American, who started the final round on Sunday at Pebble Beach three shots back, ended with a three-shot lead with two holes left to play.

After a rain-delayed start, Mickelson had produced a blemish-free round and holed six birdies to move to 18 under at the top of the leaderboard before play was called off.

Scot Russell Knox closed at nine under after a fourth-round level-par 72, one shot clear of Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell.

Play will resume at 8am (4pm GMT) on Monday.
