Over the past year or so, Phil Mickelson seems to have lost his way somewhat in terms of his world ranking. The consistency that he had long shown had somewhat subsided. However, he seemed as if he might have turned a corner this weekend.
Mickelson showed solid form throughout the Masters at the weekend and ended up tied with Justin Rose for 2nd place, four strokes behind leader Jordan Spieth. Mickelson has won at Augusta three times in the past.
“This is the first week that I’ve got the score out of myself that I thought I should,” Mickelson said after finishing his final round.

“I needed to shoot something in the mid to low 60s to have a chance and just didn’t do it,” Mickelson said while reflecting on his performance. “I just didn’t play the exceptional round that I needed, and Jordan didn’t help any of us trying to catch him. He played an extremely solid round.”
