“If you ain’t moving forward, you’re moving backwards” or so goes the old saying. With Augusta National still yielding plenty of birdies Phil Mickelson was unable to take advantage of the day and shot a mediocre par 72. Still having trouble with his driver, his short game looked pedestrian also. He said afterwards that he had at least six up and downs that he would normally convert but wasn’t able to get it done today.
He’s hoping for a repeat of last Saturday when he shot a sizzling 63 to propel him on to win at Houston. He’ need to go low to catch the leaders but he has done it before so don’t count him out yet.
