PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Defending champion Phil Mickelson has just put two shots in the Pacific Ocean at the 18th hole on the way to a triple bogey.
The 8 on the scenic par 5 completed a disappointing 73 and dropped Mickelson back to 1 under for the tournament. He made up six strokes in the final round a year ago but right now trails Brandt Snedeker, playing a group behind, by 11.
To add insult to injury, Mickelson slipped on the rocks and fell on his posterior as he searched the beach for his errant drive.
