Phil being Phil: Mickelson takes lead in PGA Championship


Mickelson was at 5-under 139.

Grace and fellow South African Christiaan Bezuidenhuit (70) were two shots behind, followed by a group at 2-under 142 that included former U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland (72) and Corey Conners, the 18-hole leader who didn’t make a par until his eighth hole and shot 75.

Still to play in the afternoon were Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas, hopeful of making the cut. And with the wind picking up, hopeful of surviving.


“It’s fun in a kind of a sick way,” Ian Poulter said. He was 6 under through 12 holes, the best start of the week, when he noticed a video board behind the 13th green that posted his score and suggested he was in range of the course record.

It’s a wonder Poulter’s eyes didn’t pop out of his head.

“I just started laughing to myself like, ‘Who in the world would write that and put that on a board with that last five holes to play?’” Poulter said.


He bogeyed four of his last six, which feature the four hardest holes on the course, for a 70.

Cameron Tringale was two shots off the lead, playing early in the afternoon, when he took a triple bogey on the par-3 14th, a 10 on the 16th hole, a quadruple-bogey 7 on the 17th and a bogey on the 18th. He shot 48 on the back nine.
