Phil Mickelson Shoots 60, Lips Out Putt for 59 on Last Hole.

Phil Mickelson Putt for 59

PHOENIX – Phil Mickelson had an opportunity to become just the 5th player to ever shoot 59 in an official PGA TOUR event, but it was not to be. Mickelson needed to birdie just one of his last two holes to get to 12-under-par. Mickelson lipped out a putt from 25 feet for birdie on the 18th, to agonizingly miss the magic number 59. Mickelson started his round on the back nine shooting 29(-7). Mickelson then closed with a 31(-4) on the front nine to shoot a first round 60(-11) at the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Al Geiberger, Chip Beck, David Duval, Paul Goydos, and Stuart Appleby are the only players to shoot 59 on the PGA TOUR.
