Phil Mickelson has set the bar high in the second FedEx Cup playoff event of the year.
That's because he fired a 63 in the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston and that has given him the top spot on the leaderboard. Tiger Woods wants the championship himself, and he fired a solid 68, but he has a lot of ground to make up if he is going to catch Phil.
Adam Scott, the Masters champion and the winner of The Barclays last week, never got it going and struggled to a two-over-par finish with a score of 73.
With Phil at the top of the leaderboard and Tiger trying to run him down, it should be an exciting weekend in Boston.
