Phil's wild ride
Went out and followed Phil Mickelson for much of his third round. The best way to describe Phil's day was a roller-coaster ride, one where he probably wanted to get off about halfway through the ride. Mickelson started the day with a great chance to grab control of the 72nd Masters if he could post even a moderate score of 2 or 3 under. Instead, Mickelson may have let his chance to win a third Masters title slip away after playing one of the poorest rounds of his Masters career.
Meanwhile, Tiger Woods gave himself a chance to win his fifth Masters title, by coming up with a 4-under 68. Woods rounds could have been much better than it ended up had a few makeable birdie putts fallen. But Woods figures to be within shouting distance of the leaders and if he can get out quick on Sunday, it could put a lot of pressure on.
