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.
Phil Mickelson had every reason to wear the big smile spread across his face after a final-round 5-under 67 Sunday at the Masters.
He said: "I hit one good shot this whole week, it was the 7-iron on 17, which went exactly as I had wanted to". Still, in contention or not, he pulled off one of the shots of the tournament in the rain at No. 8.
The missed five-footer for birdie at the first, the fluffed pitch from the first cut at the third and the three-putt that followed the otherworldly cut around the trees at the seventh were reminders that the once superhuman, red-shirted wonder is no longer the same player. After two-putting the 13th for birdie, he eagled the 15th from 30ft. "I just made too many mistakes out there".
"I'm going to take a little break for sure", he said. "I feel like I'm driving it better than I have all year, but I am not capitalising on it".
Disappointed in his showing this week, Mickelson will turn his attention toward the next major - the U.S. Open, which will be held June 14-17 at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club in NY. "It's the best event in all of golf and the opportunity to play it was something I had missed for a few years". Now he sets his sights on the U.S. Open in June at Shinnecock Hills, where he will have another chance to complete the career grand slam.
