Hall of Famer and World No. 30 Phil Mickelson styled a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round of the Safeway Open to conclude on 12-under 276, up four places to T3, three adrift of back-to-back champion Brendan Steele.
The Californian was the top-ranked player in OWGR and the pre-tourney fave outright (14/1). This was his third Safeway, brushing aside a previous-best T8 last year. After missing the cut on debut in 2007, he returned last season to post four red numbers and repeated that this week. After kicking off in 69-69-68, the 47-year-old began T7 on 10-under, four short of 54-hole leader Tyler Duncan. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he conjured three (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, gaining 0.477 strokes approaching and 1.952 around-the-green. The Arizona State product squared three bogeys at Nos. 2 (3-putt from 60'6"), 7 and 17, outpaced by five circles at 8, 10, 13, 16 and 18. His split included three conversions from between eight and 32 feet, posting 1.600 putts per GIR and 1.411 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. This is Lefty's 103rd top-3 finish in 571 career events (553 pro) and his best finish since solo 2nd at the 2016 Open. Oct 8 - 9:23 PM

Hall of Famer and World No. 30 Phil Mickelson navigated a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the Safeway Open to reach the three-quarter pole on 10-under 206, up eight spots to T7, four adrift of 54-hole leader Tyler Duncan.

The top-ranked player in Napa mustered two (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.479 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 2.496 approaching-the-green. He squared three bogeys at holes 2, 12 and 17 (missed par-saver from 4'2"), overshadowed by seven circles at 4-7, 9, 13 and 18, two from between 10 and 28 feet. The 47-year-old posted 1.417 putt per GIR and 0.691 SG: Putting, taking 25 total putts.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Hall of Famer and pre-tourney odds-fave Phil Mickelson orchestrated a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the second round of the Safeway Open to reach halftime on 6-under 138, up two places on the live leaderboard to T10, one shy of six 36-hole clubhouse leaders.

This is the Californian's 571st career event and just his third appearance, posting a MC in 2007 (Scottsdale, AZ) and T8 here last year (69-69-69-67). He finished 34th in the FedExCup standings last season, missing the TOUR Championship for the third time in the last four years. The 47-year-old went 20-for-22 with 13 top 25s and five top 10s but had no stroke-play top 5s (T5, WGC-Match Play). He checks in off a 3-0-1 record as a Captain's pick at the Presidents Cup, where he became the all-time points leader in the biennial event. Lefty carded six circles on Day 2 at holes 12, 15-17, 4 and 8, taking some luster off with double bogey-6 at 14 (3-putt from 59'0") and bogey-4 at 7. At 30th in OWGR, he is top-ranked in the 144-man field as well as a 14/1 pre-tourney outright.
Oct 6 - 4:25 PM

In the final match to be decided, Captain's pick Phil Mickelson dispatched Presidents Cup rookie Adam Hadwin 2-and-1 in Sunday singles, producing a final score of 19.0 points for Team USA versus 11.0 for the Internationals.

The US held a commanding 11-point advantage entering Sunday but only garnered three match wins out of the 12. Mickelson and Rickie Fowler won in the final two matches of the day, while Daniel Berger, playing in Match No. 4, won the deciding point earlier. Mickelson trailed after only one hole, losing the first to Hadwin's bogey-5, but squared the match with birdie-4 at No. 2 from 6'2". He went 1 UP with a par win at 3 and would not relinquish the lead the rest of the way. Lefty went 2 UP with birdie-4 at 4 and 3 UP with birdie-3 at 5, before Hadwin won the 7th on concession. Mickelson built the lead back to 4 UP with concession wins at 9 and 10, lost the 11th to Hadwin's birdie-3, and lost the 16th to Hadwin's par, but the proceedings would end at the 17th with Hadwin conceding a 2'11" par putt. Mickelson departs with a 3-0-1 record, tied with four other American's for the second-highest point total, while Hadwin mustered .5 points with a 0-2-1 record.

Phil Mickelson and Kevin Kisner defeated Emiliano Grillo and Jhonattan Vegas 2-and-1 in Saturday morning foursomes at the Presidents Cup, buoying Team USA to a dominate 11.0 to 2.0 point lead.

This was the third match of the morning and the third win of the day for the US. The Americans won hole 1 with birdie-3, lost the third with bogey-5 (all square), before the Internationals went 1 UP with par 3 at the seventh. Team USA leveled the match with birdie-3 at eight and went 1 UP with par at 14 despite an errant tee ball by Mickelson. Lefty atoned with a 93-yard approach at 15 for a Kisner tap-in birdie-3 from 26 inches to go 2 UP, but Grillo nearly aced the par-3 16th, leaving a kick-in 2 from 23 inches for Vegas to climb back to 1 DOWN. Mickelson delivered another approach at the par-4 17th from 120 yards to 7 feet and Kisner dropped the birdie-winner.

Phil Mickelson and Kevin Kisner halved their match against Marc Leishman and Jason Day while playing the foursomes format, moving the score of the 2017 Presidents Cup to 3.5 to 1.5 in favor of the Americans after day one.

It was a tale of two halves today as Presidents Cup rookie Kevin Kisner announced himself loudly with a 34'1" birdie splash at the opening hole. The Americans looked like they may run away with this match as they would win four of the first six holes to lead 3-up but the tides turned at the par-4 eighth as the Internationals started a four-hole rally. That gave the Aussies a 1-up lead thru 11, and the United States never regained the lead. Mickelson had a chance to secure victory with a 7'7" par attempt at the closing hole but couldn't convert. After the dust settles, the United States Team leads 3.5 to 1.5 after Thursday Foursomes. Mickelson is now 20-11-10 in the team format of this event.

Phil Mickelson fired out of the gate at the BMW Championship, styling a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 to position himself inside the top 10 on the early leaderboard.

Mickelson wasn't smothering flagsticks today but he did use his strong short game to glue this round together. Lefty had just two scoring chances inside 10 feet, converting on both. He added six more looks from inside 20 feet, converting on three birdies from the 11-to-14 foot range. Mickelson went through a rough patch this summer, posting over-par scores in 10-of-12 rounds, starting at the Open Championship. Since then, he has now rattled off five straight under-par rounds and looks re-energized ahead of the Presidents Cup. The Hall of Famer started the week 36th in the FedExCup standings, so he won't need a monster finish this week, but he will need to keep racking up birdies if he wants to jump inside the top-30 bubble to advance onto the final event of the Playoffs.
Sep 14 - 4:16 PM

Past champion Phil Mickelson made one final push for the Presidents Cup captain's pick, styling a 3-under-par 33-35=68 during round four of the Dell Technologies Championship to end the week on 11-under 273, good for a current spot inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

Lefty arrived with four straight finishes outside the top 35 but righted the ship this week, citing a meeting with his doctor that helped him regain his energy levels. Mickelson looked fully charged at TPC Boston this week, ending inside the top 30 in all four sub-categories of strokes gained statistics, including top 10 in off-the-tee and around-the-green. Mickelson is no stranger to success at TPC Boston, winning the 2007 edition and picking up a pair of top 10s since. However, his current form was leaving him as an outsider for the final Presidents Cup pick, which is set to be made by Steve Stricker this Wednesday. Mickelson is now one of the favorites to receive a pick. He also jumps inside the top 40 in the FedExCup standings.
Sep 4 - 5:37 PM

Past champ and World No. 32 Phil Mickelson pieced together a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship to post 8-under 205, down three places to T9, four shy of 54-hole co-leaders Justin Thomas and Marc Leishman.

The 2007 winner striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.185 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.891 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-6 at No. 7, offset by three circles at 1, 6 and 18, two from between 10 and 13 feet. The 47-year-old registered 1.786 putts per GIR and -0.698 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. His most recent of 42 TOUR titles came at the 2013 Open Championship where he erased a one-shot deficit with 5-under 66 to win by three.
Sep 3 - 7:30 PM

Past champ and World No. 32 Phil Mickelson fashioned a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship to reach 6-under 136, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to T3, one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Adam Hadwin. UPDATE: With play completed, Mickelson is T6, three back of leader Jon Rahm.

The Hall of Famer found nine (of 14) fairways and conjured nine greens in regulation, losing 0.661 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 2.124 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 12, camouflaged by four conventinal circles at Nos. 2, 10, 13 (from 24'7") and 18, adding a chip-in birdie-3 at 14 from 26'11" away. The 2007 winner recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.934 SG: Putting, taking just 24 total putts.
Sep 2 - 1:35 PM

Past champ and World No. 32 Phil Mickelson is at TPC Boston for the Dell Technologies Championship and checks in 54th in the FedExCup standings and 17th in the Presidents Cup standings.

The Hall of Famer has teed it up in all 10 prior editions, winning on debut in 2007, the first year of the FEC Playoffs. Overall, he's 9-for-10 with four top 25s and three top 10s, adding a T10/2011 and T4 in 2012, while his last four visits have yielded nothing better than T41 in 2013, where he was a first-round co-leader. The 47-year-old is 18-for-20 on the season with 11 top 25s and four top 10s, most recently solo 9th at the FedEx St. Jude six starts ago. His current form reads: T54-CUT-T39-CUT-20. The ASU alum needs a huge week to even sniff the top 10 in the Presidents Cup standings, more likely having to rely on a Captain's pick.

After rounds of 73-77=150 (+10), Phil Mickelson has missed the cut at The 146th Open, with 77 golfers (76 pros, 1 amateur) set to play the weekend after recording scores of 5-over 145 or better.

Playing in his first major since parting ways with long-time caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay, Mickelson opened his week with a birdie-free round. Switching up the game plan, Lefty put his driver back in the bag for round two. It looked like a good move after circling a birdie at the opening par-4 first. However, an errant tee shot led to a triple bogey at he par-4 third hole and he let the round slip away as the conditions toughened. This goes in the books as his first early exit of the season (17th start). Other notables to miss the cut include: 146- Padraig Harrington (2008 champ at Royal Birkdale), Si Woo Kim; 147- Francesco Molinari, Justin Thomas, Russell Knox, Robert Streb (8-over in last six holes); 148- Brian Harman, Kevin Chappell, Patrick Reed, Kyle Stanley, Ryan Moore, Byeong Hun An; 149- Bill Haas, Emiliano Grillo, Charles Howell III; 150- Shane Lowry 152- Louis Oosthuizen, 153- Brendan Steele, Bryson DeChambeau.

Hall of Famer and World No. 25 Phil Mickelson enjoyed a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 6-under 274, up 43 spots on the live leaderboard to T18 and matching the low round of the day with amateur Joaquin Niemann, Alex Cejka and Ryan Blaum. UPDATE: With play completed, Mickelson finished T20.

After opening in 67-72-71, the 47-year-old began T61 on even-par, a distant 14 shots back of PGA TOUR rookie and leader Sebastian Munoz. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and a week-best 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.694 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.885 tee-to-green. The Arizona State alum squared a lone bogey-4 at 15 (failed sand save), offset by seven birdies at Nos. 2, 7, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18, three from between 10 and 34 feet. He recorded 1.538 putts per GIR and 2.119 SG: Putting, taking 26 total putts. For the week, Lefty totaled 18 birdies against 10 bogeys and one double, and should post an 11th top 25 of the season in 16 starts. This was his first cash in four Greenbrier visits.
Jul 9 - 2:48 PM

Playing his first tournament since splitting with long-time caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay, World No. 25 Phil Mickelson returns to The Greenbrier Classic for the first time since a missed cut in 2013 and arrives at 40th in the FedExCup standings.

The Hall of Famer has yet to make a cut at The Old White TPC in three tries but brings star power to a field that features just three players from the OWGR Top 25 and only eight of the Top 50. With brother Tim now on the bag, he's making his first start in four weeks, last posting solo 9th at the FedEx St. Jude (69-67-69-68) and skipping the U.S. Open the following week. The 47-year-old, who's most recent of 42 TOUR wins was the 2013 Open Championship at Muirfield 105 starts ago, is currently co-leading the TOUR in consecutive cuts made with 17. He ranks 164th in total driving and 125th in greens in regulation, but 21st in scoring average (70.185) and 8th in birdie average (4.18).

Phil Mickelson and long-time caddie Jim 'Bones' Mackay have mutually decided to part ways, ending a 25-year golfing relationship, at least on the course.

The duo released a statement this morning saying, "After an amazing 25-year run, Phil and I have mutually decided to go our separate ways." Mickelson would add in his portion of the statement, "Our decision is not based on a single incident. We just feel it's the right time for a change." This duo is basically family at this point, so their personal relationship is definitely not over, but Mickelson will employ his brother, Tim, as his bagman for the foreseeable future. Tim also serves as Jon Rahm's agent, so he will be busy over the next few months. Lefty doesn't have a win on his PGA TOUR resume since the 2013 Open Championship and has entered the final round inside the top 10 just twice this season. How this will translate to the course is a huge unknown, but perhaps a bit of change will light a fire under the 47-year-old.
