PHIL MICKELSON, AFTER MISSING THE CUT for the 3rd time AT THE GREENBRIeR CLASSIC
“It's my distance control with my irons I haven't figured out yet,” he said after hitting 24 of 36 greens in regulation over two days. “We're at a couple thousand feet, [but] we've been practicing at sea level, so obviously it's going to go longer. It's the same altitude as Phoenix but it goes a different yardage and I haven't quite figured it out. I've posed over a lot of iron shots today and they end up not just a yard or two off from where I figure, but they're 10 or 12 yards off from where I figure. I think as I look back on these last three years, that's been the biggest issue for me is distance control with the irons.”
“I’ll give you an example that sets the tone for this week: On 16, the par 4, I hit a great drive and an iron shot that I thought was going to hit the pin coming down,” he explained. “Not only did it not hit the pin, it flew a yard from the back edge and went over the green and into the rough. It caught me off guard to fly seven yards off the number I was expecting. I just have not been able to get my distance dialed in here. The elevation change, I haven’t been able to adjust to it.”
“Look, I’m looking for advice from anybody, because it’s giving me problems...”
