For the second consecutive year, Phil Mickelson will miss the weekend at The Greenbrier Classic. For the first time in his career, has hasn't broken par in seven straight rounds.
Mickelson shot 1-over 71 on Friday at the Old White TPC to guarantee a missed cut.The over-par effort is the seventh such PGA Tour round in a row for Mickelson - a career worst.
“I don’t know what to say about that,” said Mickelson, who also had three birdies, two bogeys and a double for the second straight day. “It hasn’t been great. The parts don’t feel that far off, but I haven’t been putting them together.
"It doesn’t feel bad off the tee; it doesn’t feel bad with the iron play; it doesn’t feel bad chipping or putting. But I’m making a lot of loose drives here or there, some loose iron shots here or there, missing some short putts here or there, and just haven’t been putting it all together.”
Adding insult, Mickelson incurred a one-stroke penalty on the 11th green - his second hole of the day - when Miceklson's bar marker fell onto his ball, moving it.
“First time that’s happened to me," Mickelson said of the incident and, unintentionally, his recent performance, "I think, that I can ever remember.”
