Phil Mickelson


Q.  What happened on the shot from the grandstand?
PHIL MICKELSON:  I hit a crappy drive, hit the cart path and went into the grandstands and my drop was going to be in hay.  I had a clear lie on nice ground there and played it.  I hit it a little too hard, went over the green, hit a bunker shot to 20 feet and made bogey.

Q.  Is that a first from the grandstand?
PHIL MICKELSON:  No.  If you hit it off‑line enough, you're going to see those spots.  Just hit the shot a little bit too far.  I hit it clean.  Just hit it too hard.

Q.  The difficulty of that shot‑‑ even for you?
PHIL MICKELSON:  It wasn't hard to make contact.  It was hard to hit it on that skinny little green and get it to stop.  That was it.  Just a bad tee shot.  It's a great hole.  It's the only hole you can reach it under regulation here.  The par 5s are not reachable.  So you get really excited to get to that hole.  I hit it great yesterday on the green.  Had a great chance for eagle and then today hit a terrible shot.

Q.  Do you sort of relish hitting a shot like that?
PHIL MICKELSON:  I don't mind it.  Yeah, I don't mind it.  It's fun.

Q.  Easier than the cart path shot?
PHIL MICKELSON:  Same.  Similar, yeah.  Doesn't scrap up your club as much.

Q.  You're right on the number right now?

Q.  Was that a 7‑footer on the last?
PHIL MICKELSON:  About.  So I've got to get some rest because I've got an early tee time; or, maybe not, depends.  It's right on the edge of maybe or maybe not.
