Phil Mickelson slipped back to ninth position at the Barclays Singapore Open after entering the final round T3 and only four shots behind the rather unknown tournament leader Chapchai Nirat of Thailand.
Phil shot a final round 75 (+4) that included a triple-bogey 8 on his front nine.
Once again the players had to cope with difficult meteorological conditions: After play was suspended several times due to bad weather, most players had to play the end of their third round and the entire fourth round on Sunday.
The tournament was won by India’s Jeef Milkha Singh by a stroke over world-class players Padraig Harrington (IRE) and Ernie Els (SAF). Both Harrington and Els failed to birdie the Par-5 72nd hole and thereby missed out on a sudden-death play-off.
Despite his disappointing finish, Phil won prize money of $110,000 for his last official tournament in 2008. However, his next showing will be at the LG Skins Game, which will be held at Indian Wells Golf Resort over Thanksgiving weekend.
