Mickelson got to within two shots at two under par thanks to birdies at eleven and twelve, and then rain forced the suspension of play for nearly 45 minutes.
Tiger didn't show any ill effects of the interruption. At thirteen he gives it a great roll but comes up just short on the eagle try. A tap in birdie got him to 5-under.
Tiger had it on cruise control at 18. The approach is a safe play to the middle of the green, and despite making bogey on two of the final three holes, Tiger Woods wins his 8th major and 2nd U.S. Open by three shots.
