The last hole made Phil Mickelson less than 15 strokes after the opening round of the PGA Tour event in Texas on April 1.
The tournament took place on Oaks, par72 golf course belonging to TPC San Antonio golf complex with a prize fund of 7.7 million USD. Mickelson started from hole 1, while the “tunnel collapse” at hole 18 par5, 591 yards long.
Initially, he played nice, was 306 yards, down to the right of the fairway. The second shot was 269 yards away from the flag, he used a wooden stick but the ball did not come but entered the creek, hugging the right side of the green and then encroached to the end of the fairway.
After dropping the ball with a free-kick, the PGA Tour’s ShotLink system recorded Mickelson 23 yards from the hole. He hit a fourth shot but lacked force and the ball hit the ground and then down the rough grass. Particularly in this place, he took two shots but not escaped. In the seventh shot, the clubhead “scoops the ground” so the ball hits the edge of the green and then slips down the rock.
After using the free-kick with a second free-stick, the American golfer, born in 1970, went up to the bottom of the hole in his ninth and finished with a 4.5-meter pass – 10th. Before this quintuple bogey, Mickelson had two birdies left, four bogeys. With 79 strokes in the first match, he scored +7, 15 strokes less than Camilo Villegas at the top of the table (score -8).
Before the Texas Open 2021, he had twice 10 strokes for a hole – major US Open and 2018 and Arnold Palmer Invitational 2000. Houston Open last November, Mickelson also quintuple bogey but that time at hole 9 par3, closing day.
And 10 strokes for hole 18 yesterday ranked second in Mickelson’s list of “most lost strokes” over 640 PGA Tour events with the worst of 11 strokes in hole 14 par5, Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2008.
Mickelson joined the PGA Tour since 1992, now owns five major in 44 PGA Tour championships and 10 European Tour Cup. In terms of bonuses in the first class golf arena in America, he earned $ 92.3 million, just behind Tiger Woods with $ 120.8 million.
Mickelson entered the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2012.
