Found August 12, 2013 on
We’ve all been there. We’ve all been there many, many more times than we’d like. On Sunday at Oak Hill in the fourth round of the PGA Championship, all-world golfer Phil Mickelson joined all of us. For one shot at least, Mickelson felt what just about every casual golfer feels far too often. Mickelson felt the embarrassment and frustration of hitting one really, really bad shot. Lefty had a rough weekend at the PGA that started with a frantic rush to register and check in and ended with a disappointing 12-over finish. Mickelson finished tied for 72nd place, 22 shots behind winner Jason Dufner. The lowlight of the weekend for Mickelson, though, came on the 10th hole on Sunday. Facing a pretty poor lie in some tough rough, Mickelson topped his second shot on the par 4. The difference between Mickelson and us, though? He still somehow ended up making par.

Lefty reminds us he's not immune

Phil Mickelson followed up his win at last month's Open Championship with a dreadful showing at the PGA Championship, firing a 12-over-par 292, the lowlight of which was a 78 in Saturday's third round.

It was such an all-around bummer that Mr. Everyman didn't talk to reporters after recording a 78, one of his worst rounds in 10 years. Remember, Mickelson had some...

Phil Mickelson ties worst score ever at PGA Championship

Phil Mickelson had hoped he would shoot a 64 or 65 at Oak Hill Saturday and run up the leaderboard.  But that didn’t happen. According to, Mickelson’s third-round eight-over 78 ties his worst score ever in a PGA 

Jason Dufner Wins PGA Championship at Oak Hill While Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson Struggle

PITTSFORD, N.Y. – Jason Dufner has won his first major title with a two-stroke victory over Jim Furyk at the PGA Championship. Dufner bogeyed the final two holes Sunday for a 2-under 68 that was good enough to hold off the 2003 U.S. Open champion. The winning score was 10-under 270. Henrik Stenson finished three shots back. Dufner made up for the heartache of the 2011 PGA, when...
