Lefty regroups at the Cialis Western Open

Remember back just 3 weeks ago. Phil Mickelson needed only par on 18 to secure his first US Open and 3rd career major. I'm sure if you're reading this blog you already know what happened to him on 18 unless you've been stuck in a closet. I'm not going to explain what happened, lets just say that watching Phil on 18 was reminiscent to watching the movie "Tin Cup" when Kevin Costner (Roy McAvoy) took aim at 18 at the US Open. In the movie Roy McAvoy needed birdie to win where Phil only needed par, well lets just say that Roy missed, and missed, and missed and missed some more. He wound up with a 12 over par to blow his chance at the US Open. I wonder if Phil has watched Tin Cup lately?

Well at any rate, you would think that blowing such a huge tournament would set someone back a while. Well Phil took the last 2 weeks off to regroup himself after calling himself an "idiot" for his shot selections on 18. But in true lefty fashion he seems to have gotten over that nightmarish hole and now finds himself one shot from the leader at the Cialis Western Open. He almost pulled of the shot of the tournament if not the year when he reached the green on a par 5 in only two shots. The second shot missed the cup by inches and would have been a double-eagle, instead he settled for an eagle on #9, his last hole of the day.

To say he's got some momentum behind him is an understatement. Look for Phil to take charge of this tournament early tomorrow and claim the championship. Looks like there is no let down hang over for Phil as many expected.

Here's a look at the leaderboard. Tiger sits at +1, 6 shots back.
