Phil Mickelson One Shot Off The Lead At The Masters
The opening round of the 2012 Masters at Augusta did not go well for Phil Mickelson. He has roared back in the second and third rounds and is just one shot off leader, Peter Hanson.
It wouldn’t be the Masters without a little drama and excitement. Right now Peter Hanson sits atop the leader board at -9, but watch out, because Ole Lefty is right on his tail.
Mickelson finished Saturday’s third round at -8. A big come back for Mickelson who basically had a meltdown on Thursday after is poor play. Mickelson is in the final group at the masters for the fourth time in nine years.
Other players continue to struggle. Rory McIlroy started off Saturday in good shape, but fell aprat and is now 10 shots back. Tiger Woods isn’t anywhere close to the top, going 26 consecutive holes on the back nine without a birdie.
