The Open: Mickelson unable to lift the gloom

A frustrated Phil Mickelson was unable to improve his dismal Open record yet again.

After only one top 10 finish in his first 16 appearances — he was third at Troon in 2004 — Mickelson could do no better than level par for his first two rounds at St Andrews.

Needing a top four finish to have a chance of toppling Tiger Woods as world number one, Mickelson completed his second round 71 just before play stopped.

“I'm frustrated because I love this golf course and this tournament and I felt I was playing well coming in,” he said. “I maybe had a poor deal with the weather, but I played poorly.”
