Phil's 63: Not a belly revolution
Phil Mickelson fired an eight-under 63 Sunday morning to surge up the leaderboard at the Deutsche Bank Championship. There’s been quite a bit of chatter regarding his decision to play with the belly putter this week, but his great round today wasn’t necessarily due to his prowess on the greens.
The longest putt he made was an eight-footer on No. 11 for birdie, but he also didn’t miss any short putts or any within eight feet — the distance he was struggling from — which perhaps can be credited to the belly putter.
