Phil Mickelson is sizzling this weekend as he finished Saturday’s round at the Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Arizona at seven under par. According to Yahoo Sports, on Feb. 2, 2013, Mickelson is way out in front as his low scoring has made him a force to be reckoned with today.
The third round saw Mickelson staying true to form, as he’s kept his scores consistently low throughout this tournament. He had a “near-perfect” day of golf on Saturday, reports Yahoo.
Mickelson birdied the final four holes and five of the last six for a 7-under-par 64. This gave him a six-stroke lead over Brandt Snedeker. After putting a 15 footer in for a birdie, the celebration started for the left-hander with a fist pump in the air.
He came in one shy of hitting the PGA Tour low for 54 holes. He finished the third round with a "24 under total of 189," according to Yahoo Sports.
Mickelson has been a big name in the PGA for years and he’s held his own in many a tournament, but this weekend of golf is a feat worth watching as all eyes are on him today. He is truly on fire and can easily win this tournament this weekend.
