CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Phil Mickelson kept it entertaining to the very end Thursday and finished one shot behind Angel Cabrera in the Wells Fargo Championship.
Cabrera played in the morning and thrived on the new Bermuda greens at Quail Hollow. He made seven birdies in a round of 6-under 66. It’s his lowest score of the year and only the fourth time he shot in the 60s.
The wind was strong and swirling in the afternoon. That didn’t stop Mickelson. He made birdies off the pine straw, made a long par save on one hole and three-putted another. Mickelson finished with a 6-iron from a tough stance in the bunker that led to par and a 67.
Martin Flores also shot 67.
Stewart Cink and Charlotte resident Webb Simpson were at 68.
