Making his first start of the calendar year, Hall of Famer and two-time champ Phil Mickelson labored to a 2-over-par 38-36=74 on the Stadium Course and at 4-under 70-68-74=212, missed the cut at the CareerBuilder Challenge by four shots.
A total of 77 players made the scheduled 54-hole cut of 8-under 208. Mickelson, winner here in 2002 and 2004, misses the cut at the CBC for the third time in 15 appearances, first since 1994. At a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, he was tied-highest-up the bookmaker's food chain to exit early, joining 2014 champ Patrick Reed. This was the 47-year-old's third start of season after opening with T3 at the Safeway and T15 at the WGC-HSBC, both back in October. For the week, he totaled 15 birdies against nine bogeys and one double. Other notable early exits include: 209- Chris Kirk; C.T. Pan; Maverick McNealy .. 210 J.J. Spaun; Brandt Snedeker .. 211- two-time champ Bill Haas; Reed .. 212- Brian Stuard; 2006 champ Chad Campbell .. 213- Bubba Watson; Ryan Armour .. 214- Luke List .. 215- Martin Laird; Charles Reither (a) .. 216- Jimmy Walker.

Phil Mickelson will make his first start of the new year at the CareerBuilder Challenge at La Quinta CC this week.

Mickelson, the tournament ambassador, posted a third-place finish at the event in 2016, and he tends to play well on Ryder Cup years. While it's been a while, Mickelson won the event in 2002 and 2004. We haven't seen FIGJAM since the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International when he posted a 15th-place finish. He was also third at the Safeway Open in his only other appearance of the current season. He has had three months off, but rust isn't something to be concerned about with the Hall of Famer. At worst you can expect a Top 30 showing, and at best he'll be in one of the final groups battling for the trophy on Sunday. He doesn't miss cuts at La Quinta.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson has begun the 2017-18 with two top-15 finishes, a T3 at the Safeway and T15 at the WGC-HSBC seven weeks ago.

The 47-year-old checks in at 35th in OWGR, dropping from 19th at the end of calendar-year 2016. He finished 34th in the FedExCup standings last season with five top 10s among 20 cashes in 22 starts, failing to qualify for the TOUR Championship for the third time in the last four years. Notably, the Californian did not log a podium finish for the first time since, well never, he's logged at least one every year since joining in the TOUR in 1992. He's stuck on 42 TOUR wins in 572 career events, last claiming victory at the 2013 Open, 92 starts ago. The Arizona State alum switched caddies in June -- to brother Tim -- who's remained on the bag since. In 80 rounds played last season, he only led/co-led one time, after R1 of the WGC-Mexico, eventually finishing T7.

Phil Mickelson takes his talents back to Sheshan International Golf Club for his fifth appearance at this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Lefty has fond memories of this week's venue, winning the 2009 edition with four rounds of 69 or better. He's returned to Shanghai to finish T41 (2010) and 14th (2014), mixing in a T2 in 2012 which was played at Mission Hills. Mickelson is also making his first start since a strong performance at the Presidents Cup where he posted a 3-0-1 record for the week. With good course history and strong recent play, Mickelson provides plenty of upside for gamers this week.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
