PGA Championship 2011: Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson Moving On Up

As the final round of play continues to roll on at the PGA Championship, the number of players in red numbers is growing by the minute, with two of those players being veterans Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia. Both men started in the black before their rounds began, and have used some early birdies to head in the right direction on the leaderboard at the Atlanta Athletic Club.

Sergio moved into a tie for 16th for the tournament with three birdies on his front nine today, including back-to-back birds on the 5th and 6th. He birdied the 9th after bogeying the 8th, and began his second nine with a par on the 10th.

As for Phil, he carded a two-under 33 on the front nine with seven pars and two birdies, back-to-back on the 5th and 6th like Garcia. The shorter course setup on Sunday seems to be playing into the PGA’s hand, as they wanted as many guys as possible to shoot lower scores, making the final day of the tourney just that much more exciting. Hopefully that trend continues throughout the rest of the day.
