What Michelson said about it

Phil Mickelson on his disastrous chip shot from 90 feet away on the ninth green, where he chunked it, leading to a bogey: “I’ve practiced that shot a lot (with a 9-iron), and I’ve never had that happen, where the club just digs (into the grass). Normally it slides right underneath.”

Mickelson on losing a three-shot lead: “I had the tournament in control. I just had to par the last hole (he bogeyed). I certainly will look back and say I let a lot of opportunities slip away.”

For Mickelson, this snapped a streak of seven playoff victories on the PGA Tour, the only other defeat coming against Jesper Parnevik at the 2000 Byron Nelson Classic.
