Mickelson Gets Hot in Arizona… But Closes Cold


Phil Mickelson was on fire in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

At one point, Mickelson, who teed off on the back-side, made 4 birdies over a string of five holes (17,18, 1, 3) to get to 6-under.

Mickelson, however, struggled down stretch, dropping three bogeys (along with a birdie) over his final 6 holes, to close at 4-under-par.
