Phil Mickelson has put on a show this week at the WGC-Match Play, winning each of his first three matches in blowout fashion, 5 & 3, 5 & 4, and 6 & 4. Mickelson closed out his matches on the 15th, 14th and 14th holes, and though he’s likely plenty pleased with the performance, he’ll be winging it on those holes to some extent when he finally gets the chance. "I don't know the last three [holes]," Mickelson said Thursday after his win over Daniel Berger.
