Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson handed in a 3-under-par 35-32=67 after today's final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic for a four-day total of 10-under 270, three back of champion Daniel Berger.
The 45-year-old, four days shy of his birthday (June 16th), began the final round and ended it in the same position, a three-way T2. He was trailing 54-hole leader Berger by three after opening his sixth appearance in 70-65-68. The 42-time TOUR winner, who hasn't won since the 2013 Open Championship at Muirfield, exchanged bogeys at two and nine with birdies at six and eight to turn even. He added circles on 10, 12 and 16, but alas, couldn't catch the young Berger, despite being No. 1 in SG: Putting (cumulative 11.502). This is Mickelson's second runner-up in Memphis (2013) and third top-five finish (T3/2015). It's also his second runner-up of the season in 14 starts (Pebble Beach). Jun 12 - 9:36 PM

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson carved out a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to reach the three-quarter mark on 7-under 203, up one place into a three-way T2, three shy of 54-hole leader Daniel Berger.

The 45-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on June 16th, began Moving Day on 5-under (T3), four back of overnight leader Berger. He joined the lead on 8-under total after birdies on Nos. 5, 8 and 16, each from inside of nine feet, but squared bogey on the 17th on a failed scramble and had to drop an 18-foot par-saver from the fringe on the last to avoid back-to-backs. Mickelson continued his dismal performance off the tee with five (of 14) fairways, currently T59 for the week at 45.24 percent, but he's No. 1 in SG: Putting at 9.366, including 1.571 in R3.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson authored a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to reach 5-under 135, up 38 places on the live leaderboard into a three-way T2, four shy of 36-hole leader Daniel Berger.

The 45-year-old opened his sixth visit with an up-and-down 70 but returned for round two on a mission. His 65 is one shy of the day's best -- shot by Berger in the morning wave -- but it's one of the better laps among the P.M. ranks and matches a personal best at TPC Southwind in 20 career rounds, most recently R4/2015. Mickelson landed seven (of 14) fairways and improved to 12 GIR, making the most of his chances with a tidy 1.500 putts per GIR. Lefty's lone blemish was bogey-5 at the 13th but overpowered it with birdies on holes 2, 4, 6, 10, 11 and 16. Five of the six traveled between six and 12 feet with a long of 31'3" at the par-3 11th. He currently leads in SG: Putting at 7.793, including 3.467 in R2.

Phil Mickelson finished with three straight birdies for a 3-under-par 34-35=69 on Day 2 of the Memorial and a 36-hole total of 7-under 137, up three places to T10 with play still in progress.

The Hall of Famer has not fared particularly well at Muirfield Village with three top 10s in 15 tries. His best is T4 10 years ago and finished T49 in 2014 and T65 last year after rounds of 72-68-78-75. The 45-year-old, who turns 46 in 13 days (June 16th), began with a six-birdie two-bogey 68, highlighted by three straight birdies on holes 7-9. He birdied the same three today, ending his round with a birdie-birdie-birdie finish. Mickelson is the TOUR-leader in par-3 scoring at 2.94 and birdied three (of four) in the second round. He lost some luster with a -1.075 in SG: Around-the-Green.

Phil Mickelson enjoyed a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 7-under 281, up 14 on the live leaderboard to T5 and good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Mickelson finished in a four-way T4, two shy of a two-man playoff involving James Hahn and Roberto Castro.

Were it not for a third-round 76 that ended with an ugly quadruple bogey-8, Mickelson may have finally been the winner at Quail Hollow in his 13th visit. He rebounded on Sunday to circle five on 12 greens in regulation, all from inside of 11 feet, and added an eagle-3 at the seventh from 27 inches. The 45-year-old's one blemish was a 3-putt bogey-5 at the eighth from 23'3". Despite that hiccup, he's currently No. 1 in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative 8.493, including 2.427 in R4. Lefty is off to THE PLAYERS where he's the 2007 champ but has missed his last three cuts.

Phil Mickelson tacked on a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in today's second round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 5-under 139, up six spots on the live leaderboard to T3.

The Hall of Famer began his second frame off No. 10 tee. He opened with six straight pars but had to get up-and-down four consecutive times on holes 11-14. Mickelson broke the ice from 6'10" at the par-4 16th, adding a 15-footer on the par-4 18th to turn 2-under. He kicked-off his inward half in the same fashion with six straight pars, brushing-in par-savers from 6'6" at the second, 8'0" at the fourth and 12'6" at the par-5 fifth. The 45-year-old circled a 38-incher at the seventh before dropping his lone shot at the ninth on a failed scramble for a disappointing walk-off 5. However, he did stay in contention after going 8-for-9 in scrambling.
May 6 - 1:29 PM

Phil Mickelson won the Thursday battle with Quail Hollow Club, signing for a 3-under-par 36-33=69 to kick off his week at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Lefty started slow, finding himself short-sided in a greenside bunker at the par-3 second hole, swallowing an early bogey. In predictable fashion, he circled birdies at both of the par 5s before finding tree trouble at the par-4 ninth. On that ninth hole, he found himself in the pine straw and elected to go with driver and nearly hit a perfect shot. Instead, his recovery attempt pelted a tree and he was forced to square his second bogey of the round. Coming in, he added two more birdies on the par 5s (playing the par 5s at 4-under on the day) and also splashed in a 24'9" birdie bomb on the par-4 14th hole. This goes in the books as Mickelson's 20th sub-70 round at Quail Hollow, with tomorrow being his 50 round here. Despite the remarkable course history, he is still searching for his first victory at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson looks to get back on track at the Wells Fargo Championship and checks-in at 26th in the FedExCup standings.

Mickelson has accomplished just about everything at Quail Hollow except win. He's played all 72 holes in 12 previous visits with an eye-catching eight top 10s. Mickelson probably should've have won in 2010 on 11-under 277 (70-68-71-68), but finished runner-up to winner Rory McIlroy who raced by with a then-course-record 10-under 62. He had another golden chance in 2013, leading after 36 holes and co-leading after 54, but shot 1-over 73 for solo third. The 45-year-old enters the week off back-to-back missed cuts at the Masters and the Texas Open. He ranks 2nd on TOUR in scoring average (69.713) despite being 106th in ball striking.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson conjured up a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open and with a 36-hole total of 4-over 148, will not make the cut.

Second-round play is still in progress at TPC San Antonio but Mickelson is currently in a tie for 125th place and will not be playing the final two rounds. To his credit, he's up 20 spots on the live leaderboard with a three-birdie two-bogey effort, but his first-round 77 was too big a hill to climb. That opening 77, which he completed in double-bogey, bogey, chased a 79 in R2 of the Masters in his last start, missing the cut at Augusta National by one. The 45-year-old, who was making just his fourth Valero appearance, will miss consecutive cuts on TOUR for the first time in over 14 months, last occurring in February, 2015, at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the Farmers Insurance Open.
Apr 22 - 4:23 PM

Three-time champ Phil Mickelson ballooned to a 7-over-par 39-40=79 in today's second round of the 80th Masters and with a 36-hole total of 7-over 151, missed the cut by one stroke. A total of 55 pros and two amateurs made the cut of 6-over 150.

This was the Hall of Famer's 24th Masters and just his third missed cut (1997, 2014). At a pre-tourney 18/1 outright, he wasn't the highest up the odds food chain to miss the weekend (14/1 Rickie Fowler), but that won't be any consolation for the 45-year-old and 18th-ranked player in the world. Mickelson opened with a four-birdie four-bogey 72 and was 1-under on his loop thru six holes in R2, before playing his final 12 holes in 8-over, including doubles on Nos. 7, 15 and 16. Joining Mickelson with early exits are: 151- 2008 champ Trevor Immelman; Marc Leishman ... 152- 2011 champ Charl Schwartzel; Branden Grace; Tom Watson; 2007 champ Zach Johnson ... 153- Ernie Els; Graeme McDowell; Rickie Fowler; Jason Dufner; 2000 champ Vijay Singh ... 155- Ryan Moore ... 157- Andy Sullivan.

Phil Mickelson outlasted Daniel Berger 1-up in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play to reach 2-0-0 on the week.

Mickelson and Berger traded pars on the first three holes before Berger handed over a bogey on the par-3 fourth hole. Lefty tacked on an 8'1" birdie roll on the par-4 fifth hole to go 2-up. There was just one more birdie circled on the round, it came from Lefty at the par-4 ninth hole. The match was all squared entering the 18th. Berger was forced to concede the hole after tweaking his wrist when striking a large boulder on his downswing. Gamers should keep an eye on for any further news regarding Berger's wrist. Mickelson called this a hollow win as neither golfer had their best stuff today. He will need to tidy up the game before tomorrow's match with Patrick Reed (2-0).

Phil Mickelson took care of business with a 5-and-4 win over Matthew Fitzpatrick in round one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Lefty never trailed at any point throughout the match today. He can thank the Englishman for that, as Mickelson only needed to circle two birdies in route to his 5-and-4 victory. The putt that might have sealed the deal was a 14'8" par-saver at the par-3 seventh hole to put Lefty 3-up. He backed it up with a birdie from just inside 14 feet on the par-4 eighth hole. This is a great start from Mickelson, but his game has a lot of room for improvement as the week progresses.

Phil Mickelson takes his talents to Austin, Texas, in anticipation of this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Lefty enters the week with a strong track record at this event (16-11) but he's been assigned a tough draw in group stages, caged in with Patrick Reed, Matthew Fitzpatrick, and Daniel Berger. Mickelson also sports a 3-5-3 singles record at the Presidents Cup and is 5-5-0 at the Ryder Cup. If experience was the leading factor this week, he is the man to beat, but unfortunately it takes more than a lengthy match-play resume to advance to the bracket stage this week.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson conjured up a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship for a 72-hole aggregate of 9-under 279, down one place on the day to solo fifth.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome with eventual champ Adam Scott, the 2009 winner began his final frame five back of 54-hole leader Rory McIlroy. After a four-birdie two-bogey final frame, he ended three shy of his playing partner. The 45-year-old, making his 14th overall appearance on the Blue Monster, birdied both par 5s on his first half and added a fist-pump birdie at the par-3 ninth from 15'9" to pull to within one, reaching the midpoint on bogey-free 3-under. He immediately gave one back on the par-5 10th (tee shot into the water), and could only muster one more circle from 25 inches at the drivable par-4 16th. Mickelson was two down to Scott on the 18th tee, and drove wildly right -- into a fairway bunker on the first hole -- and squared bogey. However, he held on for his third top-5 finish of the season in six starts, accomplishing that for the first time since 2005.
Mar 6 - 8:47 PM

Former champ Phil Mickelson authored a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to for a three-day aggregate of 7-under 209, up three places on the leaderboard to T4.

The 2009 winner began his third frame in a two-way T7 on 5-under, five adrift of 36-hole leader Adam Scott. He ended five shy of a new leader after three days, Rory McIlroy. The 45-year-old birdied both par 5s on his first half -- both from inside of five feet -- to overshadow his lone bogey at the difficult par-3 fourth (failed scramble). He didn't add another until a 23-incher at the drivable par-4 16th missing his only other scoring chance from less than 13 feet all day with a missed five-footer at the par-5 12th. Mickelson improved to 10 (of 14) fairways and 28 putts (from 31 in R2), but dipped to week-low 12 greens in regulation.
