PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. -- Phil Mickelson ended up one revolution shy of a tying birdie at the 17th hole at Riviera.
Mickelson had put his second shot in the greenside bunker, then blasted out to 20 feet as he attempted to pull even with Bill Haas, who had just finished off a 69 and holds the lead at 7 under.
Meanwhile, Mickelson’s playing partner, Keegan Bradley, found the right fairway bunker and eventually missed a 28-footer for his own tying birdie birdie.
There have only been six birdies at the 18th hole on Sunday.
