What Couldve Been

Speaking of Mickelson, I don’t buy that he wins on Sunday if he doesn’t hit his tee shot in the water on the par-3 12th and makes double bogey there. I say that because those short putts he missed on Nos. 15 and 17 would’ve been much harder if he were 12-under par and in the lead at the time, or tied for the lead. Still, think about how close he was to shooting 61 or 62! If his ball stays up on No. 12, and he makes the 4-footer on No. 15 for eagle and the 5-footer on 17, he’s 10-under for the day heading into the closing hole. Let’s not forget his putt on No. 14 nearly dropped!
