Phil Mickelson’s Hybrid From 128 Yards
PHIL MICKELSON WAS IN TROUBLE on the 427-yard par-4 9th hole at TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas. Phil parked his tee shot behind some trees to the left of the fairway. Instead of playing it safe (not a Lefty trademark), he reached for a hybrid and punched a low one under and around the trees that ran up on the green 16 feet from the cup. And, yes, he made the putt for a birdie.
Mickelson went on to shoot 69 and is at 1 under at the midway point of the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Jason Dufner, 7 under after two rounds, leads by 1 stroke over Ryan Palmer, Chad Campbell, Matt Kuchar, Pat Perez, Dicky Pride and Marc Leishman.
