Mickelson backs up on moving day

Three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson went the wrong way on moving day.

The third round started well enough for Mickelson as he picked up birdies on the first two holes. But at No. 3, the shortest par-4 at Augusta National, Mickelson made double bogey after finding a fairway bunker off the tee and missing the green.

It didn’t get any better as Mickelson carded bogeys at Nos. 6, 8 and 9. He played the second nine in 1-under with a birdie at No. 15, but it still added up to 74.

Mickelson enters the final round tied for 21st.
