Liverpool are going to have to "win every single game" if they are to fend off the challenge of Manchester City and land the Premier League title, says Graeme Souness.

Rain, hail delays final round at Pebble Beach

It is Mickelson and Casey now battling to win the tournament, while Scott Stallings also has an outside chance. And sure enough, he managed to visit unknown parts of the Monterey Peninsula with a few wayward tee shots, endured a soggy, bone-numbing array of 5-plus-hour rounds, waited out a Sunday hailstorm that for a time whitened the course, made up a 3-shot deficit on Paul Casey and then - with victory imminent - all but pleaded to finish when all that would have been visible was his ...
