Golfer Phil Mickelson hasn’t played a final round as good as the one he posted today since winning the British Open. Mickelson shot a 65 in his final round and finished his day at 9 under par and only 3 strokes off the lead.
When asked if he thought 9 under would be reason for him to hang around in case of a play-off, Mickelson said no. But you never know. Mickelson said there was plenty of talent left on the course that should be able to keep scoring.
Phil was only 1 under par when he started his final round. He has played great final rounds before but he usually doesn’t take it this low when he is not in contention. Mickelson started making his birdies on the front 9.
He birdied holes, 6-8 & 9 to go out with a 3 under 33 on the front. He then picked up 4 more birdies on the back on holes, 10-11-13 & 15 before making his only bogey on the 18th.
Just think how good it would have been to post a 10 under par in the club house. If Mickelson didn’t bogey the 18th he would be sitting around double digits under par for the tournament and that could have been a little more interesting than 9 under par.
It was good to see Mickelson play well today, his putter was on fire.
