Video: Phil Mickelson Moves To Within One Shot Of The Lead

Phil Mickelson fired off a third-round 66 to finish at 8-under for the tournament and trails the leader Peter Hanson by just one shot entering Sunday. Phil punctuated his round with a brilliant approach shot on No. 18 and then sank the birdie putt to finish off the round.

Mickelson recorded four birdies and an eagle to make his charge up the leaderboard. Louis Oosthuizen is in third place at 7-under and Bubba Watson is fourth at 5-under.

Mickelson began his round by shooting even par on the front nine before going to work on the back. He birdied No. 10 and 12 and followed that up with his eagle at No. 13. Mickelson closed his round with another birdie at No. 15 and closed things out with a beautifully played 18.
