He carded three bogeys and one double bogey and missed the cut after finishing 2 over for the tournament.”Yeah, I didn’t play very well today,” Mickelson said after his round, via USA Today. “It’s a penalizing course if you don’t hit very good shots, and I hit some terrible shots today. That’s probably the score I deserved.”The fairways are tight, the rough is thicker, and I start to steer it and I start to make horrific swings. I haven’t hit some of the shots I hit today in a long time.”Rickie Fowler barely made the cut after carding 1-under 71 on the day. He opened his round with three bogeys in the first four holes and a double bogey on the par-5 6th hole.
