it's not easy to explain why Phil Mickelson's game has slipped in recent years.

Phil Mickelson is going to be 43 years old this year and is almost three years removed from his triumph in the 2010 Masters.

Let’s be clear about something, the man is coming off a pretty darn nice 2012, having won once, posting seven top 10s and earned over $4 million. But he’s not the player he was.

Until last September, Mickelson had been ranked in the top 10 of the world golf rankings. He finished 17th last year and is down to 22nd going into the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Some players have been very successful in their 40s, mostly recently Vijay Singh.

There’s no guarantee Mickelson will ever get back to that top 10 level.

Here are five ways the big lefthander might get going in the right direction in 2013.
