Crowd willing Mickelson into contention


FARMINGDALE, N.Y. – It really is amazing to see how this New York gallery continues to support Phil Mickelson. It's almost as if they've willed him into contention.

After making birdie on the 16th hole to get under par for the championship he received a thunderous ovation on his way to the tee on the thrilling par-3 17th.

He didn't disappoint with a tee shot that hit the ridge in the middle of the green and started to trickle towards the hole, ending 10 feet away.

Cheers of 'Let's go Mickelson' serenaded him to the 17th green as the gallery was in a near frenzy.

He missed the putt, though. If it would have gone down the ground would have shaken from here all the way into the city.
