Phil only plays well when he wants to
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- For the first time in his 20-year Hall of Fame career, Phil Mickelson has gone seven straight rounds without shooting par or better on the PGA Tour.
And the latest 2 over-par means he will likely miss the 36-hole cut for the second year in a row at the Greenbrier Classic.
Mickelson shot consecutive 1-over 71s at the Old White TPC to finish at 142. His second round also included a penalty stroke on his second hole of the day when he dropped his marker on his ball, causing it to move.
The penalty turned out not to have a bearing on the cut, as Mickelson was expected to miss the weekend by three strokes at the Greenbrier Classic.
As for his play of late, Mickelson admitted it has been poor, with few explanations.
"I really have been (off)," he said. "I don't know what to say about that. 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 some 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."
