Mickelson: The Major Record of 63 Will Be Broken This Weekend

Phil Mickelson fired a 2-under 68 and is at 1-under after three rounds of the 98th PGA Championship.

After his round, Phil stopped and took a few questions from Amanda Balionis of TNT. The video at the PGA is about 4 minutes, but in this clipped excerpt below, Phil predicts that the all time major championship record of 63 will be broken this weekend.

Phil says, “The course is susceptible to low scoring. I think somebody is going to break that major record of 63 these next two days. I think somebody’s going to shoot 61 or two. I think it’s out there.”
