Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 22 and two-time Genesis Open champ kicked off his 16th appearance with a 4-under-par 35-32=67, T4 on the live leaderboard, one back of early clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson.
The 46-year-old is making his first visit to Riviera CC since a T21 in 2013. He won back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2009, and is also a two-time runner-up, both playoff losses (2012, 2007). The Hall of Famer is playing his fifth straight week on TOUR, following three top 25s with a 65th- and last-place finish last week at Pebble Beach. He circled five birdies today on nine (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, three from between 11 and 29 feet, adding a pitch-in 3 at the par-5 17th. Mickelson squared three bogey-5s, all on failed scrambles, but posted a stellar 1.300 putts per GIR and 22 putts total. Feb 16 - 5:15 PM

World No. 20 and 3-time champ Phil Mickelson styled a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day total of 10-under 203, up 19 spots to T9 with play still in progress.

The Hall-of-Famer is making his 28th appearance, claiming victory in 2013, 2005 and 1996. He arrived off T21 (CareerBuilder) and T14 last week at the Farmers. After kicking off in 68-70, the 46-year-old began T28 on 4-under. He squared a lone bogey-5 at the ninth (failed scramble), but otherwise was blemish-free, circling seven birdies on eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR.

Phil Mickelson torched the Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA WEST with a 6-under-par 32-34=66 during round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge, landing on 10-under 134 heading into the weekend four shots off the pace.

Lefty split just eight (of 14) fairways and found a mediocre 12 greens in regulation. For the second straight day his short game carried him across the finish line. Most notable was an eagle splash at the par-5 11th early in his round and then a hole-out birdie from the greenside bunker at the par-4 first, just after the turn. Mickelson arrived as a big question mark given his recent hernia surgeries, but he's answering in a big way through two days. Fatigue often plays a big part of rust when a golfer returns to action, so it will be interesting to watch how Lefty finishes out over the weekend.

Phil Mickelson showed no signs of his recent hernia surgeries as he styled a 4-under-par 32-36=68 at La Quinta Country Club to open his week at the CareerBuilder Challenge.

Lefty must have been practicing his putting stroke with all the downtime from surgery, as he opened with six one-putts on the front nine before making the turn at 4-under 32. Mickelson was blemish-free at that point and remained that way until the par-4 17th bit him when he found a fairway bunker off the tee. Just before that he holed out from just off the green to save par at the 16th. That was the story of the day as Lefty found just 11 greens in regulation but went 6-for-7 getting up-and-down. The Hall of Famer won't end the day inside the top 10, but fans should take this as a very promising start, playing his first competitive round since the Safeway Open in October.

Returning from two sports hernia surgeries, Phil Mickelson officially gives his infamous thumbs up ahead of this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

Mickelson has been committed to the field but left his definitive commitment in question until now. George Savaricas of Golf Channel reported via Twitter saying, "Phil Mickelson WILL make his 2017 debut @ CB Challenge according to a source, a bit "rusty" but feels good enough to give it a go." Lefty had two surgeries over the holiday break, so a little rust should be expected as he plays his way back into form. At the same time, this has always been an event that is kind to Mickelson as he ranks second on the Career Money List at the CB Challenge, buoyed by a pair of wins (2002, 2004) and just two missed cuts in 13 tries.

Hall of Famer and 42-time PGA TOUR winner Phil Mickelson finished 16th in the FedExCup standings last season, making it to the TOUR Championship for the first time since 2013.

The 46-year-old went 2-1-1 at the Ryder Cup a week after finishing a disappointing 22nd of 29 players at East Lake. Two weeks later, he opened 2016-17 with a rare start at the Safeway Open, posting a T8 (69-69-69-67) in just his second appearance. Lefty has gone under the knife twice since then, having sports hernia surgery in October and then again in December. His timetable for a return is up in the air. The Californian was winless last season in 22 events, the third straight season he's gone without a title, dating back to his win at the 2012 Open, but did record three runner-up finishes, the most he's had in that category since posting four in 2001. In 72 rounds last season, Mickelson led three times after any round. He was the 54-hole leader at Pebble Beach before finishing solo 2nd (to Vaughn Taylor), and was the first- and second-round leader at The Open before finishing solo 2nd (Henrik Stenson).

With preferred lies in effect, Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Safeway Open to wrap up his second appearance on 14-under 274, up one place to T9 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Mickelson ended up in a five-way T8, and of the 12 players who finished in the top 10, he was the ONLY player to emerge from the LATE/early part of the draw.

The 46-year-old, making his 549th career start, has only teed it up at the Safeway on one other occasion, missing the cut at the 2007 inaugural at Grayhawk GC in Scottsdale, where he's a member. The California native and resident began the finale on 9-under (T10), six in arrears to 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire. He split a week-best nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.651 SG: Putting. For the week, he tallied one eagle and 19 birdies (five in R4), against seven bogeys.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson pieced together a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in Saturday's third round of the Safeway Open to put 9-under 207 on the board, six in arrears to 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire, who completed his third-round 66 on Sunday morning.

At World No. 15, the 46-year-old is the second-highest in OWGR at the Safeway (Paul Casey No. 12). En route to his third straight 69, he raced out to a 3-under start thru five holes, circling birdie-3 at the first from 9'1" and sinking an 8-footer for eagle on the par-5 fifth. The Californian stalled out from there, exchanging back-to-back birdies at 15 and 16, both from inside of 10 feet, with bogeys at 6 and 18 following trouble off the tee. With lift, clean and place in effect in rounds 2 and 3, he's mustered just 11 of his last 28 fairways and is currently T69 (of 70) in that stat for the week at 38.10 percent (16/42).

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson orchestrated a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in today's weather-delayed second round of the Safeway Open to reach halftime on 6-under 138, up 15 places to T7 with play still in progress.

The ASU alum hasn't played this event since a missed cut in the 2007 inaugural at Grayhawk GC (Raptor) in Scottsdale. He erased a bogey-bogey start on day 1 with five birdies over his final 16 holes to card a 69, and overshadowed three squares on day 2 with six birdies, including three straight on holes 4-6. The 46-year-old, coming off a third straight winless season, landed 13 greens in regulation for a second consecutive lap but improved to 1.538 putts per GIR and 1.730 SG: Putting. He converted all six of circles from between four and 13 feet with two of his three bogeys the result of penalty strokes.

Due to a steady stream of rain over Silverado Resort and Spa, the horn was sounded to suspend round-two play at the Safeway Open. The horn sounded at 8:39 a.m. PT with no timetable for resumption at the moment. UPDATE: Play is now scheduled to resume at 11:15 a.m.

The morning wave had the "fun" of playing through steady rain but the puddles became too much to deal with, especially on and around the greens. Phil Mickelson was one of those golfers and he managed to play three holes at even par to remain at 3-under for the week. Golfers have now been removed from the course and we will provide an update when there is a timeline for play to resume. UPDATE: Play is now scheduled to resume at 1:15 p.m.

From Ryder Cup Task Force (initiator) -- which name-changed to the Ryder Cup Committee (member) -- Team USA and 11-time Ryder Cupper Phil Mickelson was vindicated, completing a 2-1-1 week with a halve in Sunday Singles versus Europe's Sergio Garcia. Garcia wrapped his eighth appearance with a 1-2-2 record and is now 19-11-7 overall.

At the time this epic battle between the Hall-of-Famer and the Spaniard ended with their 10th and ninth birdies, respectively, the U.S. was well on their way to winning the 41st Ryder Cup 17-11, with Mickelson's halve pushing the lead to USA 13.0 Europe 10.0. The elder statesman of the proceedings at 46 years of age improved his career record to 18-20-7, battling Garcia to a draw in an amazing display of golf. In a see-saw contest which never featured more than a 1UP lead for either player, Mickelson circled five birdies on each nine, including four over his final five holes, with Garcia going bogey-free with nine birdies, highlighted by four straight birdies to finish. Mickelson's only blemish was a 3-putt bogey at the 11th.

Phil Mickelson & Rickie Fowler completed a sensational Friday morning foursome whitewash for Team USA in closing out a rollercoaster 1-hole victory over Rory McIlroy & Andy Sullivan in the 2016 Ryder Cup.

Astonishingly this was Fowler's very first full point in the Ryder Cup, in his 9th match, and Mickelson fought with his driver every time he pulled it from the bag, but they were spirited and displayed high skill to overcome a pumped-up European pair. McIlroy and Sullivan assumed an early advantage going 2-up through 6 holes, but ceded it when losing three holes on the bounce before the turn. Sullivan twice holed out from 8' for hole savers at 11 and 12, then McIlroy holed for wins from 9' at 13 and 14. But the Americans were not done and claimed 15 with par, 16 and 17 with birdies, then closed out the match with par at 18. Mickelson admitted on Sky Sports he was tight, as evidenced by going OB from the 6th tee, but he was also controlled as the game wore on and grabbed just his 5th foursomes win in 15 matches. The American pair claimed six birdies, including a hat-trick at 7, 8 and 9 (Fowler chip-in). They made two bogeys at 4 and 11, plus a double bogey at 6.

The 2016 Ryder Cup marks Phil Mickelson's 11th straight appearance in the biennial competition and he's been on the winning side only twice, in 1999 (The Country Club, Brookline, MA) and 2008 (Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, KY).

The 41st Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National Golf Club welcomes the Hall-of-Famer who enters with an overall record of 16-19-6, including a 2-1-0 mark at Gleneagles in 2014. His 41 career matches are the most in U.S. history with teammate Zach Johnson the next-most tenured of this year's squad with 14. The 46-year-old was No. 3 in automatic qualifying and finished a semi-resurgent PGA TOUR season with three runner-up finishes in 22 starts, highlighted by solo second at The Open. He ranked 12th in earnings and 16th in FedExCup points, while 7th in birdie average (4.06) and 1st in par-3 scoring average (2.93).

After a two-year absence Phil Mickelson makes his way back to East Lake Golf Club for this week's TOUR Championship.

The two-time champ (2000, 2009) is no stranger to big finishes here at the Donald Ross venue on tap this week. He would love to find some of that same magic as he's failed to pick off a PGA TOUR win since the 2013 Open Championship. Lefty enters the week ranked 13th in the FedExCup race, so he'll need a lot of cooperation from one through five in the standings in addition to a win if he wants to walk away as the FedExCup champion. More realistically, Mickelson is likely just looking to round his game into top-shape ahead of next week's Ryder Cup competition.

Past champ Phil Mickelson battled to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach 1-under 209, up 21 spots to T40 with play still in progress.

Lefty won the 2005 edition here at Baltusrol GC with a 72-hole aggregate of 4-under 276. He opened that year with two rounds under-par and closed with two rounds over-par. This year, with ideal scoring conditions over the first two days, he'd been over-par since his first hole, sleepwalking his opening 11 holes in birdie-less 4-over before rebounding for 1-over 71. Round 2 began with triple bogey-7 before fighting back to 70, one inside the cut line. The Hall of Famer kicked off R3 with bogey-5 and squared another 5 at the 11th, but outpaced those with circles at 3, 6 and 12. It took 66 holes for him to reach red numbers, adding one more for the good with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 18th.
