Mickelson Makes It a Clean Sweep in Group-Play at WGC-Dell Match Play

Phil Mickelson, the 14th ranked golfer in the WGC-Dell field, showed the golf world that he still has some serious game left in the tank. Phil completed a clean sweep of his Group 14 opponents, capped off with 6 & 5 blowout over former Ryder Cup teammate J.B. Holmes.

This win followed a opening-round beating of Si Woo Kim, 5 & 3, and a second-round pounding of Daniel Berger 5 & 4.

Mickelson now moves on to the Knockout Round, or the Sweet 16, tomorrow at Austin Country Club.

Afterwards Phil was interviewed by the PGA Tour’s media, where he was posed with the understatement of the day, “Phil, you did what you had to do today…”.
