Earlier this week, Phil Mickelson opened up about his lack of success across the Atlantic Ocean. Lefty has 31 top-10s in major championships over his career, but only one of those came at the British Open, which kicks off next week.
Phil has struggled with links golf his entire career, and he told the Associated Press this week, "... You need to putt with less break and more aggression is what I've come to find. I'm going to try to do that this week and next week and see if that doesn't combat some of the issues that I've had putting here."
After one round at the Scottish Open, it seems Phil needs to find another strategy.
Mickelson had 33 putts on Thursday at Castle Stuart Golf Links, finished with a 1-over 73, and is eight shots back of leaders Lee Westwood and Mark Tullo.
