While Phil Mickelson got most of the attention going into the Dominion Energy Charity Classic as he tries to open his senior career with consecutive victories, Mike Weir was a little better on a 36-hole day after rain washed out play Friday. The Canadian shot 68-63 to reach 13 under and take a three-stroke lead over Mickelson into the final round.

Phil Mickelson doesn't want to risk playing in front of fans before Masters

  Phil Mickelson doesn't want to risk playing in front of fans before Masters Phil Mickelson is almost ready for the Masters, which was rescheduled from April to November this year due to the COVID-29 pandemic. Mickelson, who usually preps for the Masters by playing in a tournament the week before, told the Associated Press that he is considering scrapping his plan to play at the Houston Open next week. Why? “I think that they will do a very good, safe job in having 2,000 people at the Houston Open,” Mickelson told the Associated Press Wednesday at the Zozo Championship at Sherwood. “However, for me personally, I don’t like the risk of having that happen the week before the Masters.

On his way to winning again, Phil Mickelson almost drove the 13th green, put his sand shot inside 5 feet and made the putt. Lefty and Justin Leonard closed out Goosen and Scott a couple holes later to win 3&2 in the first match of the day. The following foursome on 13 found Mike Weir chipping out of

“I’m super happy with the way I played today,” Weir said. “My mindset going into today, knowing we had 36, I wanted to get in a nice rhythm for the day because there’s so many holes. If you get in a nice rhythm, you can kind of ride it and I did that. I kind of stumbled a bit on my 18th hole the first round, but maybe that gave me a jump start to just like not be too bothered and just say, `Hey, I’m playing good and let’s just keep the pedal down.’”

Recently Phil Mickelson has posted huge gains in swing speed. At 48 years old, Phil Mickelson should be entering the twilight of his PGA Tour career. Younger players are starting to dominate the game with their explosive power and athleticism.

“Having carts makes playing 36 a lot easier,” Mickelson said. “I certainly enjoyed the day and don’t feel all beat up like we normally would. I thought it went OK. I let a lot of shots go and I’m going to go work on it now,, but I’m in a good position heading into tomorrow and hopefully I’ll put together a good round.”

He tried to be aggressive.

“I’m trying, man. I’m trying to attack,” Mickelson said. “I’m trying to hit drivers and get after this course, but it’s hard to do from the rough.”

Could Phil Mickelson-Jim Furyk become a Champions rivalry? The stats say so.

  Could Phil Mickelson-Jim Furyk become a Champions rivalry? The stats say so. It took 21 years for a second PGA Tour Champions player to win his first two starts since Bruce Fleisher accomplished it for the first time in 1999. That was Jim Furyk last month when he won the Pure Insurance Open at Pebble Beach, after winning the Ally Challenge in Grand Blanc, Mich., on Aug. 1. © Provided by Golfweek Phil Mickelson became the third less than a month later. Furyk and Mickelson have dominated the PGA Tour Champions since both became eligible by turning 50 years old in June. Mickelson made it 2-for-2 in his starts by winning last week’s Dominion Energy Classic at the Country Club of Virginia.

The records stem from a 2015 defamation suit filed by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, which was placed under lock and key after the case was settled in 2017, but was recently unsealed, as a result of a lawsuit brought last year by conservative blogger Mike Cernovich and the Miami Herald newspaper.

One thing you can count on Phil Mickelson to do is interact with fans. Case in point: last year's Dell Technologies Championship pro-am at TPC-Boston "I like the way you think," said Mickelson , who almost certainly was going to take that route anyway. And after Mickelson successfully executed the

“It’s been a long time.” Weir said. “It would take me a while to come up with when the last time that was. It’s been a long time, so it feels good.”

Fellow major champion Retief Goosen was third at 8 under with Brandt Jobe. They each shot 68-68.

“The course is great,” Goosen said. “It’s playing obviously a lot longer than last year, much cooler and wet fairways. And the par 3s are playing long, they’ve got the par 3s back today. Yeah, with this north wind, you play all the par 5s into the wind, too, and they’re long, you’ve got to hit two good ones to get there.”

Bernhard Langer, the first-round leader after a 67, was 7 under with Wes Short Jr. (69-68) after a second-round 70.

Ernie Els, the 50-year-old former major champion coming off his second victory of the season last week in North Carolina, shot 72-66 to get to 6 under.

Jim Furyk, another 50-year-old former major champion who won in his first two senior starts, was 5 under after rounds of 71 and 68 alongside Mickelson and defending champion Miguel Angel Jiménez.

Jiménez was 1 under, shooting 74-69.
