Phil Mickelson is among the most heralded golfers in the world, so it’s natural for crowds to follow him no matter how he’s playing. Thus far in the Byron Nelson Championship, he’s not too pleased at all with his round of 69 lately and his overall standing at one-under after two rounds. Going into today, he’ll hope to climb the leaderboard and make up ground on overall leader Jason Dufner.

“I hit it terrible today, there was no other way around it,” Mickelson said. “I’ve just got some mechanical issues where I was not striking the ball very solid. I was able to hit decent shots on the backside to make birdies and make a run, but that last hole stunk.”

Local golfer Gary Woodland is at two-under and remains five strokes off the lead. Chez Reavie did not make the cut. Six players are tied at six-under for second place which shows just how tight things are at Four Seasons Resort in Dallas.
