En, ja, Mickelson was participating in the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Golf Course in Fort Worth, Texas.

The 50-year-old didn’t have a great first round. He finished 3-over par and far from the leaders. Jordan Spieth led the first round with a 7-under.

Mickelson wasn’t exactly worried about his performance.

MICKELSON TRIES TO FOCUS AT COLONIAL AFTER HISTORIC PGA WIN

“Ja, I didn’t play well,” hy het gesê. “But I won the PGA, so.

Mickelson won the event at Colonial in 2000 en 2008. Egter, this time around he missed nine of 14 fairways. It started a frustrating day, especially coming off the high of winning the PGA Championship.

It was almost like I was trying a little too hard, and I wasn’t just calm and let it happen, and I was a little bit antsy,” hy het gesê. “Like I just couldn’t quite get calmed down in that same frame of mind.

Mickelson acknowledged he struggled hitting the fairways even as he felt comfortable with the 15-20 mph winde.

You can’t play this course out of the rough because then you have tree trouble, which I had repeatedly, and I didn’t putt well,” hy het bygevoeg. “But I won the PGA, so I’ll see if I can get it turned around for tomorrow and get a little better focus, a little better energy.
