Mickelson, Bradley force playoff

Phil Mickelson birdies No. 18

Mickelson birdies the final hole to make a playoff.

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. -- No one needed to tell Bill Haas there would be a playoff.

The range where he was hitting balls is about 50 yards from the 18th green. He could hear the roars as first, Phil Mickelson, and then, Keegan Bradley, poured in birdie putts to pull into a tie with him after 72 holes of the Northern Trust Open.

Now the threesome will head back to the 18th hole to decide the winner. The playoff will continue at Nos. 10, 14 and 18, if necessary.

Mickelson’s birdie putt came from 26 feet, 9 inches while Bradley made his from 13 feet, 5 inches. Those putts represented the seventh and eighth birdies there all day.
