Mickelson Surges At BMW Championship For Share Of Lead

There was a stretch this season where Phil Mickelson went 12 straight rounds without shooting under par.    It seems that he has put those days way behind him as he shot an 8 under par round of 64 to tie Vijay Singh for a share of the lead going into Sunday.

Vijay Singh carried a 1 shot lead over Rory Mcllroy and Tiger Woods going into today’s round.   Rory was able to keep pace though Tiger shot a 1 under par round to fall to 3 shots back.    Another weekend round of golf for Tiger that he watched the field make a move, and he was unable to follow suit.

Phil had a stretch on the front nine where he put up 5 birdies in a 6 hole span.   Same with the back nine also.   He sprinkled in two bogeys, but when you put up 10 birdies you can afford a couple bogeys.  His 8 under round was the best round of the day.    Mickelson will be paired with Vijay Singh who has played extremely well down the stretch of the regular season and now  into the playoffs.

Another  player that stood out today and made a significant move was Adam Scott as he shot a 6 under par round of 66 that pulled him to within 2 shots of the lead tied along with American Robert Garrigus.    I spoke of Rory earlier as he is only one shot back; he shares that spot with Lee Westwood whom played well today also.   Lee finished today with a 4 under par round of 68.

Other notables would be Dustin Johnson who shot a 5 under round to pull him to within 2.   Zach Johnson, Graeme McDowell and Bo Van Pelt all are within 4 shots tied at 12 under.

Sunday is setting up to be a tremendous finish, though if all goes to plan, at least one player at or near the lead will collapse.   That has been a trend all season now, and I would not expect to see anything different tomorrow.
