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.

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.

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.

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.
Feb 24 - 9:57 PM

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.
Jan 27 - 8:33 PM

Phil Mickelson settled for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in his opening round of the Humana Challenge at La Quinta Country Club.

Fitter and stronger since the last time we saw him at the Ryder Cup, Mickelson opened with three birdies on his first six holes today. That set included a hole-out from a bunker at the par-4 fourth. However, he regressed to even par with bogeys at 12, 14 and 16. A birdie-3 at No. 17 helped salvage the round. However, even though La Quinta is the hardest of the three tracks, its scoring average usually lands under 71, so the lefty will need to gain ground in the next two rounds to make a run. In Friday's second round, he gets Nicklaus Private at PGA West, which was the easiest course on the PGA TOUR in the last three seasons.

Phil Mickelson ranks second in all-time earnings at the Humana Challenge and returns this week to pad that total.

Lefty is a perfect 9-for-9 since missing the cut in his first two Humana starts in 1993 and 1994. That stretch includes a pair of victories ('02 and '04) and four other top 20s. It would be an understatement to say Mickelson feels comfortable on these tracks. Gamers should target him in all formats this week but also be aware that he hasn't teed it up since his 2-1-0 Ryder Cup performance in the fall.
Jan 20 - 2:52 PM

Phil Mickelson opted against competing in any of the 2014 events on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR schedule.

That's not to say that Lefty has been bored. As reported by Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner on November 11, Mickelson has taken on the role of interim assistant golf coach at Arizona State University. His brother, Tim, is the head coach. Gamers shouldn't sweat Phil's decision to invest in his alma mater. It's been established throughout the years that things like this, which could be a distraction for some, tend to energize him. Expect him to jump into the PGA TOUR fray at some point on the West Coast Swing.

Phil Mickelson defeated Stephen Gallacher 3 and 1 in singles at the 40th Ryder Cup.

This was a good match. Mickelson won six holes to the Scot's three. Five of Lefty's wins came via birdies. He won 15, 16 and 17 in birdie-birdie-par. Gallacher's only miscue was a bogey-4 at 17 where he would shake hands with the American. Prior to that, the rookie was bogey-free with four birdies. Mickelson's victory reduced the U.S. deficit to 13-9. He went 2-1-0 for the week in what felt like a final chapter of sorts given his limited play. Gallacher was a non-factor at 0-2-0.

Phil Mickelson is hoping history doesn't repeat itself as he readies for the 40th Ryder Cup.

Lefty enters the week with a disappointing Ryder Cup record of 14-18-6 after nine appearances. A record way too low for a golfer of his cachet. While his 2013-14 form was perceived to be rotten due to just one top 10, the eight finishes of 11th to 20th place proves that this old dog still has a few tricks up his sleeve. With a lot of new faces on the American team, look for Mickelson to lead by example this week as they try to redeem themselves from the mishap at Medinah.

Phil Mickelson withdrew from the BMW Championship prior to the start of the third round after completing 36 holes in 6-over-par 146.

Mickeson has made a concerted effort to keep some gas in the tank over the last few weeks, choosing to forgo practice rounds in an attempt to stay fresh. It appears the Ryder Cup is now his main focus. "My primary goal is to rest and prepare for the Ryder Cup," he said in a statement. "Without a chance to contend at the TOUR Championship, the most important thing for me now is to prepare for the Ryder Cup." Mickelson will conclude a PGA TOUR season without a victory for the first time since 2003. Entering the week 56th in the FedExCup standings, this is the first time in the FedExCup Playoffs era he's missed the TOUR Championship.
