PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) A strong wind was more than just a menace at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. It brought the tournament to a halt Saturday because of two holes on one of the courses, and set up a Monday finish without the amateurs.

Keith Mitchell made it through the worst stretch of wind at Pebble Beach, so strong that he hit an 8-iron on the 106-yard seventh hole. And right when he thought he was off the hook by getting through the ocean holes, the horn blew to stop play.

"We knew going into today that those were going to be the tough holes. That was going to be the hardest stretch potentially all week," Mitchell said. "If we could make it through that stretch in a relatively good score, I would be set up for the weekend."
