Phil Mickelson For One Shot Lead After Three Rounds
April 8, 2012 by staff
Phil Mickelson For One Shot Lead After Three Rounds, Phil Mickelson raised the putter in his right hand and slammed down his left fist to celebrate a 20-foot eagle putt that shook Augusta National with the loudest roar on a day filled with them. Peter Hanson knew what was going on behind him without looking Saturday. He also knew exactly what he had to do.
The 34-year-old Swede, playing in only his second Masters, answered by making four birdies over the last five holes for a 7-under 65, the lowest score of the tournament, to take a one-shot lead into the final round.
“I’m standing in the middle of the fairway and I feel him breathing down my neck a little bit,” Hanson said.
He followed with an approach into 2 feet for birdie, a 15-foot putt from the fringe on the 15th, a 30-foot birdie putt over the ridge on the 17th and one last birdie at the 18th with a shot that stopped inside 3 feet from the cup.
