Adam Scott has taken a 4-up lead over Phil Mickelson in their singles match Sunday at the Presidents Cup - without having to putt on the first three holes. Mickelson hit his opening tee shot into rough, bladed his second under the spectator stands and conceded when his par putt missed. On the par-5 second, he was in a greenside bunker for two, but took two shots to get out and gave Scott his two-footer for birdie. On the par-3 third, Mickelson's tee shot was short and in a gully. His first chip rolled on the green and off, back nearly to his feet. His next effort went into a bunker, and he again conceded. The pair halved the fourth hole - with bogeys - and Mickelson, who was rested Saturday afternoon in fourballs, bogeyed the fifth to go 4-down.
