Phil Mickelson Whiffed On A Shot

Phil Mickelson Whiffed On A Shot

Whoever leader Patrick Reed will tee off at 2:30 p.m. ET (1830 GMT) using a two shot guide over playing competitor Marc Leishman of all Australia.

The 14-time Major victor was the butt of some Twitter banter before he headed out for last night's final round, sandwiched between names like Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples and Vijay Singh - three former champions with a combined age of 173. "I just made too many mistakes out there".

He would convert the eagle putt to get back to 7 over for the tournament.

"I haven't had big numbers this year, and then these last two weeks I've had a lot of big numbers". Mickelson eventually chipped it out sideways, but the damage was done and it led to a triple bogey 7. 8 and 11, Mickelson closed strong.

China Starts Diluting N.Korea Sanctions
The two Koreas have seen a significant thaw in ties since the North's participation in the South's Winter Olympics in February. North Korea came dangerously close to war with the USA past year as Trump promised "fire and fury" in response to Kim.

With nothing to lose - not that that ever matters for the aggressive lefty - Mickelson attempted a daring driver-off-the-deck shot for his second into the par-5 8th.

It'll be a sad day when Phil Mickelson's time on tour comes to an end. "It's not like I was knocking down the stick". And given all his near misses (six runner-up finishes) and his age (47), he knows his opportunities are dwindling.

"I'm going to take a little break for sure", he said.

It was not the "homecoming" Woods and his fans were hoping for as he teed it up at Augusta - although given Mickelson's impressive form it might have been tempting to settle for finishing in front of him. "But these next two US Opens, Shinnecock and Pebble Beach give me good opportunities". "In the past, I've been on at Shinnecock [runner-up in 2004], and I'm hopeful to do it again".
