The Thrill returns


AUGUSTA, Ga. – On Sunday, three Mickelsons returned to action – Phil, Amy and the Thrill  – and was announced with authority with a roping 6-iron from pine straw right of the 13th fairway to 4 feet.

Winged Foot seemed like a long time ago as Mickelson’s caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay beamed in the glow of his boss’ third green jacket in seven years.

“He played incredibly aggressive all week,” Mackay said. “He would not have won this tournament without doing the things he did.”

As for where this Masters ranks on a list of lofty accomplishments, Mackay didn’t hesitate: “I have to think that this win, at least for me, will mean more than any victory he’s ever had.”
