Mickelson edges ahead of Harrington in Nissan Open

Phil Mickelson has edged ahead of Padraig Harrington to lead golf's Nissan Open to lie 13 under after three rounds.

Harrington is one behind, with Rich Beem closing to within one shot of the Irishman with a 65, including a hole-in-one.

Harrington didn't get a lot out of the round.

"I feel it would have good to hold a few of the puts and get it to 15 under or so," he said.

"I think that would have been put a pressure on the guys. Myself and Phil have basically let the field back into this tournament. It's a bit of a battle tomorrow. There are a lot of people in with a chance. Whoever plays the best is going to win."
