Phil Mickelson carded a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's final round of the 79th Masters to post 14-under 284, good for a share of second place with Justin Rose.
Lefty would have needed a 65 today to catch champion Jordan Spieth today. If it's any consolation to the three-time Masters' champ -- and it isn't -- no one went lower than 66. Mickelson hit a week-low 11 greens in regulation and picked off four birdies before holing out for eagle from a greenside bunker at the par-5 15th. He squared a trio of bogey-5s. Disappointment in the majors is nothing new to the 44-year-old. This is his 10th second-place finish in the majors, but it's his first at Augusta National where he has 15 top 10s in 23 starts. Six of those runner-up results have occurred, infamously, at the U.S. Open. Of course, that's the next major on the docket. Like Rory McIlroy at the Masters this week, Mickelson will be attempting to achieve the career grand slam at Chambers Bay on June 18-21. Apr 12 - 7:35 PM

Three-time Masters' champ Phil Mickelson spun a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's third round of the 79th Masters to post 11-under 205, which was good for outright possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Mickelson signed his card with a share of second place, five strokes in arrears of Jordan Spieth, who has one hole to play. So, the Hall of Famer may draw the 21-year-old on Sunday. In what was a vintage walk around Augusta National, Mickelson totaled 15 greens in regulation and buried seven birdies. His most impressive was the last one. After landing his tee ball at the par-3 16th over 40 feet from the hole, he curled in the uphill try into the side door to elicit a roar from the massive crowd. For all of the waning expectations of Mickelson contending on a weekly basis, he still has the mettle to rise to the occasion on the game's biggest stages.
Apr 11 - 6:51 PM

Phil Mickelson backed up his opening 70 at the Masters with a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in today's second round to post 6-under 138.

He's eight strokes adrift of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth, but Mickelson is playing some spirited golf this week. He stood over 12 opportunities to break par and circled five birdies to cover a lone bogey at the par-3 fourth hole. The lefty is bogey-free 7-under on the par 5s this week. Today's score is his lowest at Augusta National since a third-round 66 en route to a T3 in 2012. He'll have to pursue a similar number tomorrow if he's going to collect his fourth green jacket this week.
Apr 10 - 7:31 PM

Phil Mickelson turned back the clock with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his opening round of the 79th Masters.

OK, so he's not quite worthy of an old-timer's game, but this is his lowest score in his last eight at Augusta National Golf Club. He also has only one top 10 in his last 31 PGA TOUR starts; granted, it was a solo second in the last major (2014 PGA Championship), but that total is a clear indication that he's in the twilight of his career. He went 4-for-13 in scoring chances today. That set was highlighted by a kick-in eagle at the par-5 eighth. He played the quartet of par 5s in bogey-free 4-under. The three-time Masters' champ signed his card sitting only three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Apr 9 - 4:18 PM

Phil Mickelson twirled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Shell Houston Open to reach the midpoint in 11-under 133, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It was déjà vu for the left-hander. For the second straight day, he piped 10 (of 14) fairways, landed 14 greens in regulation and buried seven birdies. The only difference is that he squared two bogeys today instead of just one. Mickelson converted on three looks ranging 18-25 feet today and leads the field with his 14 birdies. At last check, he ranked inside the top 11 in both strokes-gained stats. He may not hold the lead outright at the conclusion of two rounds, but he wouldn't trade positions with anyone within one week before the Masters.
Apr 3 - 6:50 PM

Phil Mickelson enjoyed a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

This is a breath of fresh air. Mickelson didn't waste any time inhaling it, either. He opened the tournament with an 11-yard hole-out from off the green for birdie at the par-4 10th. He added birdies at 12, 13 and 15 before drilling a 20-footer at the par-4 17th for his fifth and final birdie of his outward nine. Birdies at 2 and 8 followed. Alas, Lefty couldn't get to the house without a blemish. He found a greenside bunker off the tee at the par-3 ninth and settled for bogey. Overall, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and totaled 14 greens in regulation. Not only does this match his lowest aggregate of the season (second round, Humana Challenge, Nicklaus Private), but the timing is outstanding with the Masters next week.
Apr 2 - 2:02 PM

Phil Mickelson put together a 2-over-par 40-34=74 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and enters the finale at even-par 216.

Lefty squared two bogeys and a double bogey on the front nine at TPC San Antonio, not making his first birdie until the par-4 11th hole. His highlight, and only other par breaker, was a 3'4" eagle at the par-5 14th hole. He would drop a final shot in the form of a bogey at the par-3 16th after flying his tee shot into the gallery. At this point, he is probably out of contention for a victory, but a top-10 finish is certainly still in play.
Mar 28 - 5:31 PM

Phil Mickelson signed for an even-par 36-36=72 following his second round of the Valero Texas Open.

This was quintessential Lefty. He piped eight (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation, circling four birdies along the way. The set featured a chip-in from nine yards away at the par-4 fourth. However, Mickelson also three-putted the green at the par-4 12th from 69'9" for bogey. He squared another bogey at the par-3 16th where his tee ball landed in the bunker inside the green. And he doubled the par-4 sixth after finding trouble well left of the fairway off the tee. However, at 2-under 142, he's positioned four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead and poised to pounce on the weekend.
Mar 27 - 3:20 PM

Phil Mickelson posted 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, coming to rest just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Mickelson always like to enter the Masters warm and competitively fresh. The bonus is when he plays well. So, he checked both boxes at TPC San Antonio today. He went 5-for-9 in birdie chances with a 15-footer at the par-4 fifth hole and a 10-footer at the par-4 17th. However, Mickelson garnered attention mostly due to the fact that the clubhead of his 8-iron came off on his second shot from a fairway bunker at the par-4 12th hole. (You can view the video at the link below.) He'd go on to bogey the hole.
Mar 26 - 7:56 PM

Phil Mickelson will give the Valero Texas Open another shot after bowing out early in last year's edition.

Lefty hung up his spikes early last year after pulling an oblique muscle on the 47th hole of the week. TPC San Antonio did not treat him kindly during his debut as he was greeted with a 5-over 77 before posting a 2-under 70 to make the cut on the number. Mickelson is not getting any younger but still ranks 35th in driving distance and can scramble his way out of the toughest of lies. That makes him a very appealing top-tier play as many gamers will look straight past him this week.

The final round of The Honda Classic resumed as scheduled at 8:00 a.m.

Perfect scoring conditions greeted the 71 golfers that returned to PGA National this morning. Phil Mickelson promptly whiffed on his par try from 10'1" at the par-4 ninth hole to turn in even-par 35. He's 3-under for the tournament, four strokes off the pace of co-leaders Paul Casey and Ian Poulter.
Mar 2 - 8:08 AM

Phil Mickelson conjured up a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The Honda Classic to join Paul Casey in the clubhouse lead at 3-under 207.

Mickelson bagged five birdies to go with two bogeys and a double bogey on his trot around PGA National's Champion Course. Three of those birdies ranged from between 10 and 17 feet. He had to scramble, as he only landed 10 GIR, but the putter propped him up. He had gained over three strokes with the flat stick at the time of his posting. He will need to have it clicking on all cylinders if he is to hoist the hardware on Monday.
Mar 1 - 3:32 PM

Phil Mickelson posted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of The Honda Classic to reach the midpoint in 2-under 138, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Mickelson's two-day second round is his first red number in five scores. His last was an opening 69 at the WM Phoenix Open. His 67 at PGA National featured five birdies, including a chip-in from the rough 13 yards away at the par-4 14th. His longest of the conventional variety disappeared from 16'8" at the par-4 eighth. Overall, the lefty has piped just 14 (of 28) fairways and hit 21 greens in regulation, but he compensated for six bogeys with eight birdies. His last top 10 was a solo second at the PGA Championship last August, and that was his only top 10 of 2013-14.
Feb 28 - 10:54 AM

Phil Mickelson missed the cut in The Honda Classic in 2014 and is back for another crack at PGA National's Champion Course.

Lefty has actually played in this event three times prior to 2014, but all were at a previous venue. After a T24 at the Humana Challenge to start his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, he has failed to cash a check in his other two starts. His 1-over-par 141 tally at PGA National last season only missed the cut by one, so it's certainly not out of the question for him to stick around for the weekend this time around.

Phil Mickelson is a three-time champion of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and returns looking for number four this week.

Mickelson should be considered armed and dangerous at TPC Scottsdale, having tied for the lead with 26 birdies in the Humana Challenge last week. The elementary math says that he would have been in line for a win if he could have limited the bogeys. The same will likely be the case this week. It would not be a roll of the dice to plug Lefty into any lineup.
