Phil finishes poorly at Scottish- but looks forward to British Open

filesmall European Tour | commentmall Written by BigRed

In his first tournament after finishing in a tie for 18th at the US Open four weeks ago, Phil Mickelson did end the Barclays Scottish Open at Loch Lomond Golf Club T38. The only real thriller during the four days in Scotland was Phil’s magnificent

hole-in-one during Friday’s second round.

That shot did spark a series of birdies and left Phil only five shots off the lead at halfway-point. However, nothing went into the right direction during the weekend and Lefty slipped off the leaderboard with rounds of 71-73. The title went to Northern Ireland’s Graeme McDowell who cashed in 630,000 € and secured his place on the European side for this year’s Ryder Cup.

In a post-round interview on Sunday Phil said that despite his poor showing at Loch Lomond he is looking forward to this week’s British Open at Royal Birkdale. He went there to practise for three days prior to the Scottish Open and thinks that the set-up of the golf course suits his game.

I will tell you more about the 2008 British Open and my personal favourites before the tournament kicks off on Thursday morning.
