Phil Mickelson: Will Lefty Find Consistent Swing To Contend At TPC This Weekend?
Phil Mickelson Makes A Move On Friday At The Players Championship
Phil Mickelson started The Players Championship is less than dramatic fashion by shooting a 1-under par 71 on Thursday and tied for 44th place. He was good but inconsistent with his shot. He had four birdies, but he also had two bogies and one double-bogey that derailed his round.
Things have gone a bit better for lefty in the second round. He still hasn't found a consistent swing, but he hasn't had a crippling double-bogey in this either. As things stand right now, he is at 2-under par for the day and 3-under for the tournament. He is tied for 23rd place with seven other players.
Mickelson has had a good year so far, with one win and four top-10 finishes in 10 events played. But he continues to make mind-boggling decisions with his driver that cost him strokes.
If he can put away his pride and stop trying to out drive everyone on tour, he could have a couple more wins this year. Just last week at the Wells Fargo Championship, he was in good shape until he fired a 74 on Saturday derailed him and he finished ninth in that tournament.
David Toms is leading The Players Championship right now at 10-under par. Assuming that things stay as they are right now, Mickelson will have to make up a lot of ground.
The good news for him is that there are some low scores to be had out there. The bad news is he isn't taking advantage of them right now, and he continues to looking way up at the leader.
If the driver doesn't work for Mickelson, he better make sure that his putter doesn't let him down on Saturday and Sunday if he wants to win The Players Championship.
