Phil Mickelson came up from a dreadful start to remain in the race with a 2-under 70 on Thursday at the ongoing PGA Championship.
The 50-year-old five-time major champion made four bogeys over his first six holes. It appeared he was on the way to a missed cut instead of up the leaderboard. But he made five birdies without a bogey over his final 12 holes at the Ocean Course.
He is currently three shots behind leader Corey Conners and one in back of a large group that includes two-time PGA winner Brooks Koepka.
Mickelson last clinched the championship in 2005.
