Mickelson, Bradley co-lead heading into Sunday


Phil Mickelson carded 1-under 70 Saturday at the Northern Trust Open to keep his hopes of back-to-back wins alive.

Mickelson is tied with Keegan Bradley at 7-under par, after Bradley carded a 5-under 66 in the third round.

Mickelson and Bradley will play together on Sunday for the first time on the PGA Tour. Bryce Molder will fill out the trio in the final group at Riviera.

Three players are tied for third at 6 under, including Molder, Jonathan Byrd and Pat Perez. 

Defending champion Aaron Baddeley leads the group tied for sixth and trailing by two. FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas and Dustin Johnson round out the trio on 5 under.

Mickelson is shooting for wins in consecutive starts for the fourth time in his career and in consecutive weeks for the third time in his career. He last did it in 2006, when he won the BellSouth Classic and the Masters. 

Tiger Woods was last to achieve the feat on the PGA Tour, back in 2009.
