Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson conjured up a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open and with a 36-hole total of 4-over 148, will not make the cut.
Second-round play is still in progress at TPC San Antonio but Mickelson is currently in a tie for 125th place and will not be playing the final two rounds. To his credit, he's up 20 spots on the live leaderboard with a three-birdie two-bogey effort, but his first-round 77 was too big a hill to climb. That opening 77, which he completed in double-bogey, bogey, chased a 79 in R2 of the Masters in his last start, missing the cut at Augusta National by one. The 45-year-old, who was making just his fourth Valero appearance, will miss consecutive cuts on TOUR for the first time in over 14 months, last occurring in February, 2015, at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the Farmers Insurance Open.

Three-time champ Phil Mickelson ballooned to a 7-over-par 39-40=79 in today's second round of the 80th Masters and with a 36-hole total of 7-over 151, missed the cut by one stroke. A total of 55 pros and two amateurs made the cut of 6-over 150.

This was the Hall of Famer's 24th Masters and just his third missed cut (1997, 2014). At a pre-tourney 18/1 outright, he wasn't the highest up the odds food chain to miss the weekend (14/1 Rickie Fowler), but that won't be any consolation for the 45-year-old and 18th-ranked player in the world. Mickelson opened with a four-birdie four-bogey 72 and was 1-under on his loop thru six holes in R2, before playing his final 12 holes in 8-over, including doubles on Nos. 7, 15 and 16. Joining Mickelson with early exits are: 151- 2008 champ Trevor Immelman; Marc Leishman ... 152- 2011 champ Charl Schwartzel; Branden Grace; Tom Watson; 2007 champ Zach Johnson ... 153- Ernie Els; Graeme McDowell; Rickie Fowler; Jason Dufner; 2000 champ Vijay Singh ... 155- Ryan Moore ... 157- Andy Sullivan.

Phil Mickelson outlasted Daniel Berger 1-up in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play to reach 2-0-0 on the week.

Mickelson and Berger traded pars on the first three holes before Berger handed over a bogey on the par-3 fourth hole. Lefty tacked on an 8'1" birdie roll on the par-4 fifth hole to go 2-up. There was just one more birdie circled on the round, it came from Lefty at the par-4 ninth hole. The match was all squared entering the 18th. Berger was forced to concede the hole after tweaking his wrist when striking a large boulder on his downswing. Gamers should keep an eye on for any further news regarding Berger's wrist. Mickelson called this a hollow win as neither golfer had their best stuff today. He will need to tidy up the game before tomorrow's match with Patrick Reed (2-0).

Phil Mickelson took care of business with a 5-and-4 win over Matthew Fitzpatrick in round one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Lefty never trailed at any point throughout the match today. He can thank the Englishman for that, as Mickelson only needed to circle two birdies in route to his 5-and-4 victory. The putt that might have sealed the deal was a 14'8" par-saver at the par-3 seventh hole to put Lefty 3-up. He backed it up with a birdie from just inside 14 feet on the par-4 eighth hole. This is a great start from Mickelson, but his game has a lot of room for improvement as the week progresses.

Phil Mickelson takes his talents to Austin, Texas, in anticipation of this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

Lefty enters the week with a strong track record at this event (16-11) but he's been assigned a tough draw in group stages, caged in with Patrick Reed, Matthew Fitzpatrick, and Daniel Berger. Mickelson also sports a 3-5-3 singles record at the Presidents Cup and is 5-5-0 at the Ryder Cup. If experience was the leading factor this week, he is the man to beat, but unfortunately it takes more than a lengthy match-play resume to advance to the bracket stage this week.

Hall of Famer Phil Mickelson conjured up a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship for a 72-hole aggregate of 9-under 279, down one place on the day to solo fifth.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome with eventual champ Adam Scott, the 2009 winner began his final frame five back of 54-hole leader Rory McIlroy. After a four-birdie two-bogey final frame, he ended three shy of his playing partner. The 45-year-old, making his 14th overall appearance on the Blue Monster, birdied both par 5s on his first half and added a fist-pump birdie at the par-3 ninth from 15'9" to pull to within one, reaching the midpoint on bogey-free 3-under. He immediately gave one back on the par-5 10th (tee shot into the water), and could only muster one more circle from 25 inches at the drivable par-4 16th. Mickelson was two down to Scott on the 18th tee, and drove wildly right -- into a fairway bunker on the first hole -- and squared bogey. However, he held on for his third top-5 finish of the season in six starts, accomplishing that for the first time since 2005.

Former champ Phil Mickelson authored a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to for a three-day aggregate of 7-under 209, up three places on the leaderboard to T4.

The 2009 winner began his third frame in a two-way T7 on 5-under, five adrift of 36-hole leader Adam Scott. He ended five shy of a new leader after three days, Rory McIlroy. The 45-year-old birdied both par 5s on his first half -- both from inside of five feet -- to overshadow his lone bogey at the difficult par-3 fourth (failed scramble). He didn't add another until a 23-incher at the drivable par-4 16th missing his only other scoring chance from less than 13 feet all day with a missed five-footer at the par-5 12th. Mickelson improved to 10 (of 14) fairways and 28 putts (from 31 in R2), but dipped to week-low 12 greens in regulation.
Mar 5 - 7:28 PM

Phil Mickelson settled for an even-par 32-40=72 in the second round of this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, putting himself five strokes off the pace through two days.

Lefty was clicking on all cylinders on the front nine as he rattled off a four-hole birdie train that started on the par-4 fifth hole with an 8'10" roll. The train got him to 9-under where he shortly held a three-stroke lead. The putter hung him out to dry from there, as he missed three straight birdie opportunities from inside 12 feet, starting at the par-5 10th hole. Then on the par-3 13th, he missed a 4'1" putt to save par. Despite these struggles, he still held a two-shot lead as he stepped on the par-3 15th tee box. With just a wedge in hand, he splashed his tee ball and made a mess of the recovery pitch shot, resulting in a double bogey. Mickelson would surely like a mulligan on that entire back nine today, but luckily he still has 36 holes to play catch-up.
Mar 4 - 6:15 PM

Phil Mickelson cruised to an opening-round, 5-under-par 32-35=67 to kickoff his week at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Lefty opened his round on the back nine, immediately splashing a birdie roll from 14 feet on the par-5 10th hole. He added two more birdie-putts from outside 14 feet to offset a pair of bogeys, making the turn at 1-under 35. Most notable was the 30-footer on the par-4 16th hole. Mickelson cruised into the clubhouse from there, adding four more circles to his card, without a putt falling from outside 7'1" on his second nine. It was a tale of two nines as his flat stick carried him initially while his ball-striking took over before the round was over. Lefty continues his strong play, and is surely satisfied with this effort despite finding water on the difficult, par-4 18th hole.
Mar 3 - 3:46 PM

Phil Mickelson backed up with a 4-over-par 36-38=74 in today's second round of The Honda Classic for a two-day total of 3-over 143, down 48 places on the live leaderboard to T62.

The Hall of Famer has had worse days but this one goes into the books as his first birdie-less loop since the first round of last year's WGC-Cadillac Championship. He hit 10 greens in regulation but swallowed a dismal -2.678 in strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. The 45-year-old, making his first start since a "disappointing" solo second at Pebble Beach, missed birdie tries from 6'9", 9'6" and had two other scoring chances from inside of 13 feet but missed them all. He also missed a five-footer for bogey at the 14th. With play winding down, Mickelson will make the cut, most likely on the number, and in his 25th season on TOUR, is playing the Honda for just the sixth time.
Feb 26 - 6:15 PM

Phil Mickelson opened up his week at the Honda Classic with a 1-under-par 37-32=69 to sit two strokes off the co-leaders on the live leaderboard.

Lefty entered the week on the heels of back-to-back top 15s. He picked up right where he left off, following a week of rest. Mickelson landed 13 greens in regulation but struggled with the flat stick throughout the round. It all started when he missed a 3'10" par-saver on the par-4 second hole. He added a three-jack on the par-4 sixth to pile onto the putting woes. There was a little redemption for Lefty when he splashed in a birdie from 29'9" on the par-3 15th. Overall, he was right around field average putting while gaining nearly four strokes:tee-to-green. The ball-striking is an encouraging sign for whats to come this week.
Feb 25 - 2:20 PM

Overnight leader Phil Mickelson settled for an even-par 36-36=72 in today's final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a 72-hole total of 16-under 271 (68-65-66-72), one shy of champion Vaughn Taylor who shot 65.

In a move that will puzzle most pundits, Mickelson brought in his swing coach directly following a bogey-free 65 in R3 that vaulted him into the 54-hole lead by two over Hiroshi Iwata. Whatever transpired, it didn't work as the Hall of Famer, who was vying for a record-tying fifth AT&T Pebble Beach title in his 20th appearance, finished off with a nervy four-birdie against four-bogey finale. The first signs of trouble began with an errant tee shot and approach to the third but he saved par from 7'10" before squaring back-to-back bogeys at four and five with failed scrambles. The 45-year-old bounced back from 2'11" at the par-5 sixth but missed birdie from 9'1" at seven before connecting from 4'8" for birdie-3 at eight. Another par save (from 8'7") followed at nine to turn even and later exchanged bogeys at 11 and 14 (failed scrambles) with birdie at 13 and a clutch 12-footer at 17. He had a chance from 5'1" at the last to force a playoff but lipped out.
Feb 14 - 7:15 PM

Four-time AT&T champ Phil Mickelson smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to post 16-under 199, up two spots on the day and good for the 54-hole lead by two over 36-hole co-leader Hiroshi Iwata.

The tournament's all-time money leader opened his 20th edition with 4-under 68 on Spyglass Hill GC and 6-under 65 on Monterey Peninsula CC to sit one adrift of Iwata and Sung Kang after two days. He began day three on Pebble Beach Golf Links off the 10th tee and kicked off with birdie from 11'0" at the par-4 11th before back-to-backs on 17 (from 10'5") and a chip-in birdie-4 at the signature 18th hole. After the break, he connected three straight circles on Nos. 5-7, the latter dropping from 19'1". Remarkably, the 45-year-old landed just seven (of 14) fairways and only nine greens in regulation but kept his march to the top intact with a pair of seven-foot par putts (sand saves) at the 14th and again at the first.
Feb 13 - 6:50 PM

Phil Mickelson tore apart the front nine of Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course on his way to a 6-under-par 29-36=65 during round two of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to grab a share of the clubhouse lead at 10-under 133. UPDATE: With play completed, Mickelson is one back of 36-hole co-leaders Sung Kang and Hiroshi Iwata.

Lefty went on early-59 watch as he birdied four of his first five holes to reach 8-under on the week and throw his name into contention. He rolled in a birdie on the par-4 eighth to make the turn at 5-under 34. An eagle-3 on the par-5 10th raised the stakes of the round, but that's where the fun stopped. Mickelson got in trouble on the 12th hole to square a disappointing par-5 bogey. He played the par 5s at 6-under up until that point. He was forced to scramble for bogey on his final hole, just his third bogey of the week. Mickelson walked off the 18th green with a share of the lead as he readies for a Saturday tee time at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Feb 12 - 4:57 PM

Phil Mickelson smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day total of 8-under 205, up 31 places on the live leaderboard to T6. UPDATE: With play completed on day three, Mickelson sits solo sixth, five adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee.

Mickelson was in the third threesome off No. 10 tee and began Moving Day T37 (2-under) after 69-71. He opened with five straight two-putt pars before breaking the ice from 15'8" at the par-5 15th and added a second circle from 10'11" for birdie-3 at 18 to turn 2-under. The three-time WMPO champ went back-to-back rolling in a 12-footer at the par-4 first before ringing-up par breakers at Nos. 3, 7 and 9, the latter two from 22'3" and 29'0", respectively. Mickelson striped 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation registering 1.667 putts per GIR.
