Phil Mickelson has got some mojo for the Masters. Before first major of the season that is set to start from next week, however, Phil is focusing on staying in competition in Humble, Texas. He shot a 6 under sixty-six in his first round of Shell Houston Open earlier on Thursday. The five-time major winner is just 3 shots behind early topper Scott Piercy. Phil’s round might be a good omen for Masters.
Mickelson told that it was a great round – very good start for the tournament. The scores are going to be quite low, and people have seen a great bit of low scores because the greens are soft and rolling true. Good 1st round for him. He is looking forward to 3 more.
The World Golf Hall of Fame member, who counts 3 Masters among his forty two titles on PGA Tour, has not won since snatching his 5th major at the British Open in 2013. In thirty five events, he has ended inside the top ten just twice.
In 6 2015 beginnings, he has missed 2 cuts as well as counts a T17 as his great finish. He has fallen to No. twenty one in the world golf rankings. Earlier on Thursday, Phil’s day began on number ten at the Golf Club Houston and it began on a great note.
After letting the green go off his hands on the par he had the flag pulled and chipped in for birdie. Phil told that he got off to a great beginning, birdieing three of the first 4 holes and kept it going.
