On a shot you'd normally expect him to hit the flop shot only Phil can pull off, he putts it, maybe gets a slight graze off the intermediate cut, and it goes in.
Q. We know you're a magician on the greens, but on No. 7, was it really your intention to bank the putt off the collar of the fringe and into the hole?
PHIL MICKELSON: Yes. (Laughter.)
I had to putt 20 feet through the fringe. That was the challenge of that was to judge the speed where half the putt is through fringe and half is on the green.
I got lucky to have made it, obviously. I was just trying to 2 putt it. It was doing fairly quickly when it got to the hole, probably would have been six, eight feet by. I was very fortunate to make a 2 there. With Brandt in there close, that was a big momentum change for us.
With the win--his 41st and one that tied for the second lowest score in PGA Tour history Mickelson helped move the news cycle away from Vijay's deer antler spray and back to golf, says John Strege.
Mickelson also moves to No. 10 in the world and Brandt Snedeker, runner-up, moves to No. 6, wrties Jason Sobel.
