I don't know....it's a very penalizing course the way it is setup. I see Sergio is already +5, Bubba too. I'd be surprised if Phil is less than +4.

I just don't understand why Phil is so terrible in driving accuracy with 3 different instructors in the course of his career. He's scored well here but the rough is 2 inches longer this week.

Shaky start. Four poor iron shots in the opening four holes. Does not look sharp.

Phil is clearly frustrated and when he needs a fairway on par 5 7th he missed and gets terrible break and looks wet.

Just brutal golf since he decided to part ways with Bones. Very disappointing, but I guess it shouldn't be shocking considering his age. His days as a top golfer are done. I was hoping for a big win or two. Seems unlikely.

Don't think his head is screwed on straight

If your watching Phil online featured group you can see his poor play is getting to him. Can't seem to forget previous bad shots.

His short game is awful. As poorly as I've ever seen Phil chip the ball. MC coming.

It's a combination of old age..4 year winless drought and needed a good finish to make President cup points. Plus we will never know what the arthritis situation is. He can't use it as an excuse because he's getting big bucks to promote it. As a fan it's tough to accept the inevitable.

gee whizz, nothing is working. Can't even get a middle of the fairway from 110 yards onto the green (in bunker).

It is hard. To cope, I've been becoming a Spieth fan. He has a lot of Phil in him, but with Nicklaus-like efficiency

Online coverage said Phil playing too fast not taking practice swings and on 11th hole almost hit out of turn. Apologized to Duffner.

I don't think Phil will be a Captain's pick. They seem to be writing his epitaph with this showing:

Mickelson (79) shoots worst round of PGA career

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Making his 100th major start and playing his 95th round at a PGA Championship, Phil Mickelson on Thursday signed for his worst career score at the year's final major.

The 2005 PGA champ and five-time major winner made eight bogeys and zero birdies en route to an 8-over 79.

It marked only the second time Mickelson has failed to make a birdie in a round at the PGA, with other occasion being 1998's third round at Sahalee.

This is now the second time in his last three major rounds that Lefty has failed to circle a hole on his card, as he went birdie-free in the first round of last month's Open at Royal Birkdale, where he missed the cut.

Should he also fail to advance to the weekend here at Quail Hollow, it will be only his second missed cut in 25 starts at the PGA and his first MC since 1995 at Riviera.

Mickelson is a combined 20 over par in his last seven PGA Tour rounds, breaking 70 just once last Sunday at Firestone.
