Phil Mickelson “Masters” Another Major

With the return of Tiger Woods at Augusta Golf Club for the 2010 Masters it was one of the most watched and anticipated golf events in history. With stars such as Phil Mickelson, Anthony Kim, returning champion Angel Cabrera and many more greats in the field it was going to be a battle to the finish.

After one day of play, 50 year old Fred Couples had the low of the day with a 66 giving him the edge by one stroke. But it wasn’t long until Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter (both from England) were taking the lead heading into the weekend. Tiger Woods was not far behind just trailing by 3 strokes.

Heading into Saturday it was looking like there was no man that was going to get into the way of Lee Westwood, until Phil Mickelson stepped foot on the thirteenth hole where he eagled. Then at the fourteenth hole with the shot of the tournament Mickelson eagled again making a shot 120 yards out. Phil never looked back from there and almost made another eagle on the fifteenth and ended up in second place, one shot behind Lee Westwood going into the final round.

With players making runs such as Tiger Woods, K.J. Choi, Fred Couples and Anthony Kim, the green jacket was up for grabs on that beautiful Sunday. However once Phil stepped on Augusta Golf Club that evening, he knew that jacket belonged to him. Shooting a 67 with no bogeys on the day of the 2010 Masters and the green jacket once again belonged to the great lefty Phil Mickelson.
