Phil Mickelson just added some extra Augusta crystal to his already impressive collection.

The three-time Masters champ began his hunt for a fourth green jacket Thursday with an eagle-3 at the par-5 second when he ripped his drive around the corner, found the back of the putting surface with his approach, and rolled in this 42-footer that skirted the fringe and broke towards the hole:

Mickelson won the green jacket in 2004, 2006 and 2010. He was the runner-up to Jordan Spieth in 2015 and has finished third five times.
