Phil Mickelson clinched a group stage hat-trick of wins with a 6-and-5 demolition job on J.B. Holmes; he progresses to the knockout stages of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin CC.
Having trounced Si Woo Kim 5-and-3, then dumped Daniel Berger 5-and-4, Mickelson completed a stunning first three days of the tournament with his work Friday, an effort that laughs in the face of his previous log book in the event (which lacks even one semi-final appearance in 12 attempts). But is that the true picture? Mickelson played the first 11 holes in just "1-under" (thanks to a 29’1" birdie at No. 2) and yet was 6-up courtesy of Holmes making three bogeys and conceding another two holes. After that the pair shared two holes with pars, more than sufficient to draw the last breath from Holmes. Mickelson will play Lee Westwood, Pat Perez or Marc Leishman in the round of 16.

Phil Mickelson made it two wins from two at the 2017 World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas by easing past fellow American Daniel Berger 5-and-4 in Thursday's second round of group play.

A 5-and-3 victor over Si Woo Kim on day one, the left-hander raced out of the blocks at windy Austin CC today with a winning birdie at 1 after wedging to kick-in range and a par at the next was good enough to double his advantage. After the next two holes were shared, Mickelson raced clear with birdies from 7'3" and 5'8" respectively at 5 and 6 before Berger had his only success of the day with a birdie-2 at 7. The quality of the match dipped after that as Berger lost the 8th to a par and the two players shared the 9th (bogey) and 12th (bogey) with 6s. Mickelson stayed 4-up after both bogeyed again at 13 and Berger conceded the 14th and the match after finding water at 14. Mickelson will have to play better than this to go deep into the tournament but a win over J.B. Holmes in his final group 14 match tomorrow would send him to the last 16 with a perfect 3-0 record.

Phil Mickelson opened the 2017 World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play by dispatching tournament debutant Si Woo Kim 5-and-3 at Austin Country Club.

Mickelson entered the week having never made the semi-final stage of this tournament in 12 appearances and in truth he did little Wednesday to suggest he’ll break that trend this week, given that he was handed many holes by his inexperienced rival. Indeed, Mickelson reached the fifth tee 1-over-par and yet two holes to the good, a consequence of Kim making double bogey at 2 and bogey at 3. A two-putt birdie at the par-5 6th stretched Mickelson’s advantage and a 12’9" birdie at the next gave him a lead of 4-up. Kim’s 10’6" par breaker at 11 claimed a hole back, but Mickelson’s 95-yard approach to the 13th was conceded for birdie and the hole. From that point it was only a matter of time and the end came with a beautiful 95-yard pitch from the winner to 2’9" for birdie. Elsewhere in the group Daniel Berger thumped J.B. Holmes 7&5. Mickelson will take on Holmes in round two, Kim faces Berger.

First-round co-leader and World No. 23 Phil Mickelson patched together an even-par 38-33=71 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship for a four-day total of 10-under 274, down four places into a three-way T7, four in arrears to champion Dustin Johnson.

After beginning in 67-68-68, the 46-year-old began in a two-way T3 on 10-under, two adrift of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas, one back of Johnson. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he found nine (of 14) fairways but just seven greens in regulation, losing 0.659 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.831 tee-to-green. The Hall of Famer went out in 3-over, outpacing birdie-4 at six with bogeys and 1 and 7, and double bogey-6 at eight. He settled in on the back half, eagling the par-5 11th (from 3'2") and circling the par-5 15th from 37 inches. For the week, Mickelson carded one eagle and 18 birdies against eight bogeys and one double. He was 2nd in SG: Putting (7.029) but T68 in driving accuracy (28/56) and T58 in GIR at 56.94 percent (41/72). It's his second top 10 of the season (T8, Safeway) in seven starts and 17th WGC top 10 in 49 career events.
Mar 5 - 7:37 PM

First-round co-leader and World No. 23 Phil Mickelson bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship for a 54-hole total of 10-under 203, down one place into a two-way T3, two adrift of leader Justin Thomas, who shot 66.

After opening in 67-68, the Hall of Famer began in a three-way T2 on 7-under, two back of 36-hole leader Rory McIlroy. Playing out of the final threesome, he mustered just four (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation, losing 3.610 strokes off-the-tee. Lefty was all over the yard but in typical fashion, was able to escape with just three bogeys, gaining 1.580 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.803 around-the-green. The 46-year-old carded six birdies, two from off the green, and also saved par with a third hole out at the par-4 14th (from 29 feet). He circled three straight on Nos. 15-17, but gave up a spot in Sunday's final group with a walk-off 5 at the par-4 18th. Phil's chasing his 43rd career title in 555 starts, first since the 2013 Open Championship, where he came from one back with 5-under 66 to win by three.
Mar 4 - 7:05 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, overnight co-leader Phil Mickelson tacked on a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's second round of the WGC-Mexico Championship to reach 7-under 135, down one spot to solo 2nd but good for the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Mickelson is in a three-way T2, two back of leader Rory McIlroy, who shot 65.

The Hall of Famer co-led with five others after an opening 67. He landed six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining just 0.444 strokes tee-to-green but 2.344 with the flat stick. The 46-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at 14 (trouble off the tee), but erased it with birdies at Nos. 12, 15, 6 and 8, posting 1.769 putts per GIR and 29 putts total. He converted two from greater than 11 feet with a long of 27'6" at the par-4 eighth that completed his scoring.
Mar 3 - 5:21 PM

Phil Mickelson breezed through Club de Golf Chapultepec during round one of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship, piecing together a 4-under-par 34-33=67 to join a five-way share of early clubhouse leaders with play winding down for the day.

Lefty split nine (of 14) fairways and also landed 13 greens in regulation. In typical Mickelson fashion, he was also a perfect 3-for-3 from greenside bunkers. After his round he cited his love for playing in altitude including his strong track record at The International, the now-defunct Stableford event played at Castle Pines Golf Club in Colorado. He won the event in 1993 and 1997. If Mickelson can hold onto the co-lead by day's end, it will be his first lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR since R2 of last year's Open Championship.
Mar 2 - 6:33 PM

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.
Feb 4 - 4:15 PM

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.
Jan 20 - 6:07 PM

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.
Jan 19 - 4:57 PM

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.
Jan 18 - 11:55 AM

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).
