  Opinion: Phil Mickelson is confident he can make a run at the Masters — if he fixes his putting Three-time Masters champ Phil Mickelson, sitting at 5-under, can envision another green jacket -- if he's able to improve his putting at Augusta.“I’m striking the ball exceptional, and I’m putting horrific,” the 50-year-old Mickelson said after firing a 2-under-par 70 in his second round after a 3-under 69 in the opening round that stretched across Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. At 5-under, he is tied for 19th, four strokes behind a quartet of leaders, including Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas.
