PGA Championship 2011: Phil Mickelson's Final Round Underway

As Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele wait to tee off as leaders of the PGA Championship at seven-under par, Phil Mickelson has just hit the course at even par. Lefty is  looking to make up some serious ground on the leaders during the final round Sunday at the Atlanta Athletic Club, and will certainly have his work cut out for him to do so. 

Phil shot his only under-par round of the tournament of Saturday, fining a one-under 69 that included four birdies and three bogies. Lefty continues to struggle on the par-4 18th though, bogeying or double-bogeying that hole in all three rounds thus far. Hopefully he can get it figured out today. 

Lefty teed off just a bit before 10:00 am on Sunday, and has two pars through the first two holes of his round today. The PGA decided to use their shortest layout of the week on Sunday at only 7,236 yards, which hopefully will play into Mickelson's power game. But no matter what, he needs to get it done in the final stretch of the course as he is four-under on holes 1-14 for the week, but is four-over on holes 15-18.
