Phil Mickelson’s struggles continue. He just lost to Justin Rose, 3 and 1, in the second round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championships in Arizona.
Phil was spotted working with swing coach Butch Harmon on Tuesday, even though his swing coach is Rick Smith. It looked like Phil was back on track with the win at Pebble Beach, his first since his collapse at Winged Foot in the U.S. Open. But, after squandering a one-shot lead with one hole to go at the Nissan Open last week and losing Thursday, Phil will be hard-pressed to defend his title at the Masters in April, which is about six weeks away.
Tiger Woods easily defeated Tim Clark, 5 and 4…His bid to keep his consecutive win streak is still alive. If he wins match play, it will be eight consecutive PGA Tour events.
