Phil Mickelson finished his Masters stroke with 70

Phil Mickelson took two bad blotches with him to the 1st tee earlier on Thursday.

He blocked off one, and might be on his way to finishing the 2nd. Phil, highlighted by an 278-yard three-wood which fixed a tap-in eagle at the par-five 8th hole, opened the seventy ninth Masters with a two-under-par seventy. Dating to the 1st round of the Masters 2013, Mickelson’s last 5 rounds at Augusta National, till Thursday, had all been over par. He escaped the cut here previous year, for just the 2nd time.
