Thursday 31 January 2013
Phil Mickelson fell agonisingly short in a spectacular bid to become only the sixth player to dip under 60 on the PGA Tour when his birdie putt for a magical 59 horseshoed out at the Phoenix Open in Scottsdale, Arizona.
"The last six feet it was right on line and slope, it should have been right in the middle," Mickelson said. "To have that putt on line, I am kind of mortified that it didn't go in."
