Phil Mickelson hits driver off the deck to six feet, makes eagle

10 April 2018

Lefty came into Augusta with a shade of momentum after winning his first tournament in almost five years when defeating Justin Thomas in a playoff to claim World Golfing Championship in Mexico, in March, but a 79 in round 2 all but killed his chances of claiming a fourth green jacket this weekend. Patrick Reed used a pair of back-nine eagles to fight off a spirited charge from Rory McIlroy yesterday and open up a three-shot cushion going into the final round of the US Masters where he will try to capture his first major title. And not only does he attempt one of the toughest shots in golf, he executes it to perfection.

But that early miss was followed by three more from inside six feet - including two on the the seventh green, where he missed a short one for birdie and also fluffed a four footer for par. A wayward first drive of the day saw the American's ball end up under a large overhanging branch. A big finish beckoned but instead, he closed out with a three-putt bogey for a 69, two shots worse than Mickelson (47).
