Tiger Woods - World's #1

Phil Mickelson - World's #2

Mickelson sandwiched birdies at two and four around a bogey on the third, but his back nine was a horror show. He notched a triple-bogey at the par-4 10th and a double at the par-4-17th to go with two bogeys and a birdie. The perennial No. 2 in the world ended up with an ugly 76 and a tie for 25th. “It was a frustrating back nine for me,” Mickelson said. “I got off to a poor start, tripling 10.” Mickelson would not bite on discussing his elusive search for the top spot. “I’m just trying to get my game right now, and today I took some positives -- not from the day but from the week,” Mickelson said.

Long journey. Veteran journeyman Tom Gillis played his way onto the front page of this week’s leaderboard, and into the BMW Championship later this week, with two closing 65s. e 42-year-old Gillis, who considered hanging up his sticks in 2007 and played with no logo on his golf cap, credited his putter with his surprising leap up the scoreboard to finish in a tie for fifth. “I rode that putter all weekend,” he said. “I made everything I looked at.” Emily Kay is a regular contributor to New England Golf Monthly.
