Phil Mickelson isn’t happy with his results after returning to golf back in June. Phil just can’t seem to find the right form and it seems like he needs some time. “I’m certainly frustrated because I’m playing well at home and I’m not bringing it out here; I feel I’m closer than it looks even though the scores have been atrocious,” Mickelson told Golf Digest on Friday.
The LIV Golf Invitational Boston was another indication that Mickelson can’t show everything he knows. There are many mistakes he makes in his game. “It’s the little things,” he said. “I’m forcing it a little bit out here.
[For example] hitting a great shot on the very first hole today to 25 feet and three-putting [for bogey]. Just little mistakes like that, I’ll have to clean up”.
Phil Mickelson: I’ve had lows in my career
However, Mickelson is aware that the time will come when he will show everything he knows.
Phil had many ups and downs in his career, and this is just another experience. “I’ve had lows in my career, and I fought through them. I’m excited to fight through this one, too,” Mickelson said. “I’m motivated.
I’m having fun. I’m enjoying playing. I’m working on my game and I’m excited to compete. I’m hitting a lot of shots that make me optimistic. Back home, I’ve been playing well, and I just need to bring it from home out here”.
Mickelson’s LIV team, Hy Flyers GC still plays a bit better, especially his two teammates “The great thing about this teams [concept] is we’ve got Matt and Bernd who have put us on top of the leaderboard even though I played terrible today,” Mickelson said. “[But] I can contribute tomorrow and I’m going to see if I can turn it around and do that”.
