SAN DIEGO (AP) – Phil Mickelson had another easy time with the South Course at Torrey Pines and is one round away from winning on the course that once felt like home.
Despite making only one birdie on the par 5s, Mickelson shot a 4-under 68 and was tied with Bill Haas going into the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. Haas missed a 4-foot par putt on the par-5 18th and shot 71.
Tiger Woods shot himself out of the tournament by making careless mistakes. He shot a 2-over 74, ending his streak of 21 rounds at par or better on the South Course in PGA Tour events.
Woods wound up eight shots behind.
Mickelson is a three-time winner at Torrey Pines, but he hasn’t won here since 2001.
