Phil Mickelson does not lack confidence.
Not this weekend, at least.
Winner of 44 PGA Tour events, including five majors, “Lefty” sits tied for 15th after two rounds of the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind. Mickelson teed off at 11:10 a.m. at 3 under.
His performances on Thursday and Friday left him feeling so good, he took to Twitter to proclaim it. Mickelson captioned a photo of himself during Wednesday’s practice round at TPC Southwind with, “Mood heading into the weekend.” It was accompanied by a smiley-face emoji with sunglasses.
Mickelson has only two top-10 finishes since winning the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am in February 2019. He is currently ranked 71st in the world.
Always fond of TPC Southwind and playing in Memphis, Mickelson reiterated both points Friday.
“I really love this golf course, I think it’s the most underrated course that we play on Tour. It’s just a wonderful, fair, fun challenge,” he said.
Later, in response to a question on Twitter about whether or not he plans to visit Germantown Commissary, Mickelson tweeted, “Check.”
Mickelson is chasing Brendon Todd (-11), who takes a two-stroke lead over Rickie Fowler into the third round after firing a 64 Thursday and a 65 Friday. Play began at 10 a.m. Saturday.
