Mickelson bogeys No. 17

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The 17th hole again has proven to be Phil Mickelson's nemesis, and may have cost him his long-awaited first Wells Fargo Championship win.

Mickelson, who had just bogeyed the 16th hole to fall back into a three-way tie for the lead, hit his tee shot on the par 3 guarded by water to the fringe, some 65 feet from the pin. He putted to 9 feet and then missed the putt for par.

So he heads to the 18th hole needing a birdie to join PGA TOUR rookie Derek Ernst, the fourth alternate this week, and England's David Lynn in a playoff.

Mickelson is now 14 over for the 40 times he has played the 17th hole.
