Mickelson (not that one) leads PGA Assistant Championship

first_imgPORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. – Andy Mickelson shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the PGA Assistant Championship. Mickelson (no kin to Phil) is a PGA apprentice at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville, Illinois. He had an 15-under 201 total and has played 47 straight holes without a bogey on PGA Golf Club’s Wanamaker Course. “I am driving it great right now and I’ve hit a ton of greens. So yes, I am staying out of trouble,” Mickelson said. “I’m not putting incredibly well, but if you have enough looks, you’ll find a few birdies. My target number today was 69. I figured if I shot that, I’d have the lead heading into the final round. So I did one better and that’s a big positive.” Adam Rainaud of South Hadley, Massachusetts, was second after a 66. Karen Paolozzi of Atlanta, the lone woman in the field, was tied for 37th at 1 under after a 73.last_img read more
