Phil Mickelson found himself in contention early on Friday but slid way down the leaderboard after ballooning to a 7-over-par 39-40=79 during round two of the 82nd Masters Tournament, placing him right on the current cut line at 5-over 149 at the midpoint.
Lefty started his day with a birdie at the par-5 second which got him to T3 on the live leaderboard but it was all downhill from there. Most of the damage was done at the par-4 ninth where an errant tee ball left him in trouble and then he pelted a tree in his rescue attempt. He walked off with a triple-bogey 7 at the hole. Lefty bounced back at the 10th with a birdie but added three more bogeys and a double before his day was done. At 5-over-par, Mickelson is straddling the cut line on the live leaderboard. The cut-line rules call for top 50 and ties this week as well as anyone within 10 shots of the lead. Mickelson is currently T49 on the live leaderboard and 10 shots behind the current leaders on the course. There is a good chance he's safe to play the weekend but a lot can happen this afternoon.

Phil Mickelson heads to the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club searching for his fourth-career victory at the Georgia major, and he practiced with four-time champ Tiger Woods on Tuesday.

According to the Golf Channel, it was the first time since 1998 that Lefty and Tiger practiced together in a non-team event. Mickelson was fitted for green jackets in 2004, 2006 and again in 2010, so it's been a while since the tailor has taken his measurements. FIGJAM is playing with renewed confidence after posting a win in a playoff at the WGC Mexico Championship, and he hopes the resurgence continues at the first major of the season. He should be rejuvenated, as he has recently started prepping for majors by cutting back to nine holes of practice per day. He birdied five straight holes starting at 13 on Tuesday. Perhaps that's a good sign of things to come. You know he'll be in the hunt come Sunday.

Phil Mickelson, the 14th seed, won the final three holes to come from 4-down and snatch a dramatic 1-up victory over Satoshi Kodaira on day two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin CC, staying in the tournament with a 1-1-0 record.

Japan's Kodaira made all the early running and three birdies along with a Mickelson concession put the 40th seed 4-up after just seven holes. The momentum swung back to the American with wins at 8, 9 and 10 (17-foot birdie) but bogeys at 11 and 14 allowed Kodaira to walk to the 16th tee 2-up with three to play. Staring at an early exit, Mickelson pitched to two feet for a winning birdie at 16 and holed putts of just inside eight feet at both 17 and 18 to put what seemed an unlikely point on the board and eliminate Kodaira (0-2-0). To progress to the last 16, the three-time Masters champion will need to beat Charles Howell III in Friday's final group game and then win a play-off. If not, his curiously poor record in this event (never gone beyond the quarter-finals) will continue.

Hall of Famer and World No. 34 Phil Mickelson enjoyed a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the WGC-Mexico Championship to match Justin Thomas on 16-under 268, and then defeated him with par on the first hole of sudden death, the par-3 17th.

The 47-year-old, a pre-tourney 25/1 outright, bags his 43rd TOUR title in 578 career events (560 pro), first since the 2013 Open 98 starts ago. It's his third WGC title in 53 appearances, joining two wins in 2009, though his win at the 2009 HSBC was an unofficial event. The Californian finished T7 here last year and won the 2009 edition at Doral as 54-hole co-leader. He's now 7-for-8 on the season with six top 25s and five top 10s, recording four straight top 10s for the first time since 2005. The ASU alum improves his record to 8-4 in extra time, and this was his first playoff win since the 2005 BellSouth Classic (reduced to 54 holes). He began in a four-way T2, two back of leader and playing competitor Shubhankar Sharma, and offset two bogeys with seven birdies, including the equalizer from 19'4" at the par-4 16th. In extra time, Thomas was eliminated after a failed scramble and Mickelson two-putted from 17'3" for the victory.

Phil Mickelson heads down to the WGC-Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec in search of his fourth consecutive top-10 finish.

Mickelson has been on a roll, including a runner-up finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am a few weeks ago. FIGJAM is posting big numbers, as he ranks fifth on the PGA Tour in Birdie Average (4.67 per round) while checking in 11th in Scoring Average (69.787). He has been helped out by amazing scrambling ability, and he is on fire with the putter. Lefty ranks first overall on the PGA Tour in Putts Per Round (26.96), including a No. 2 ranking in Final-Round Putting (26.17). Mickelson might be playing some of the best golf of his career and he is good. Just ask him.

Taking on the South Course at Torrey Pines, Mickelson was spraying it all over the park, like he often does. He signed his fair share of gloves today.
