LOS ANGELES (AP) — Phil Mickelson opened with a par Thursday at the Genesis Open before wet conditions halted play at Riviera after less than an hour.

Typical of Mickelson, it was no ordinary par.

Mickelson drove into a bunker on the short par-4 10th when the horn sounded to stop play. Because the weather presented no danger, players were allowed to finish the hole. Mickelson went over the green into a slightly plugged lie in the bunker behind the green. Unable to control the spin, his shot rolled over the green into a third bunker.

And right when it looked as if he was headed for a big number, Lefty holed his fourth shot for par.

He walked back to his caddie and said with a wide smile, “How about we go in now?”
