ICYMI: Mickelson Was Pure ‘Mickelson’ During Round 2 of the Safeway Open

There is no Tour player who enjoys the challenges of playing golf under duress more than Phil Mickelson.

Wearing his signature double gloves, Mickelson fired another 3-under par 69, while taking on all that mother nature and the golf gods threw at him.

Whether it was playing his ball out of a lie in the front of a concession stand.

Or simply managing recovery shots in a downpour, Mickelson always seems to thrive.

Afterwards, Mickelson said it was one of his better rounds in terms of iron play, given the lousy conditions. That’s saying something for a player who’s won 42 times on the Tour.

And we couldn’t agree more!

Mickelson stands at 6-under for the tournament through two rounds. He is tied for 10th place at the time of this posting.
