Though Phil Mickelson was unable to register a victory in his name at the Deutsche Bank Championship but still he thinks that he has played quite well. Now he thinks he is ready to get started with the FedEx Cup playoff event.
Mickelson recorded a 5-under par 66 after opening his account with three 68s. He tied for the fourth place with 14 shots behind. This was Mickelson’s best finish since the Masters where he tied for the third place. In fact he was unable to finish higher than the 36th spot since May when he tied for the seventh spot at Byron Nelson.
Mickelson reported he was happy with his game as his putting was good and he drove the ball according to his wish. Crooked Stick, the BMW Championship site, will be a whole new experience for him as he hasn’t ever played there. But he has been successful at the TPC Boston. While talking about TPC course he said that the course is full of birdie holes. There are also several par holes which are really tough.
Phil Mickelson is under some doubts about the new TPC course as it has been reconfigured by Gil Hanse, the architect. The size of the course has been reduced to 4100 square feet from 6500 square feet. But he is quite sure that it won’t create much trouble as he is getting back to his form. He scored birdie of 18 recently and also recorded two pars.
Hanse has been termed as one of the best ground architecture by Mickelson. But then he is not sure about the 18th hole as most of the measured shots are failing to reach the hole. Phil Mickelson can be the best in his day and he proved it by making only a single bogey which counts to six for the week. According to his opinion he prepared himself for four rounds and didn’t want to make any silly mistakes.
