Mickelson pays for his errant approach on 10
By BOB HARIG
Published March 5, 2006
MIAMI - Phil Mickelson didn't want to say how much money he forked over to a fan in the gallery whose watch was broken Saturday by an errant Lefty shot.
But he did check it out before appearing to hand over two $100 bills.
"It wasn't a Rolex," he said.
Mickelson had hit a 3-wood second shot on the par-5 10th hole that flew to the right and into the gallery. It struck a spectator on the wrist, breaking the clasp on his watch. Mickelson visited with the fan, then reached into his wallet.
He paid dearly during the third round.
Mickelson started the day tied for the lead with Tiger Woods, but shot par 72, including bogeys at two of the last three holes.
"I'm four back, I've got to make a run," said Mickelson, who finished runnerup to Woods at Doral last year. "What really hurt was the couple of bogeys coming. ... It's going to take a low round. I just need a couple of those putts to go and I think a little bit of momentum, and I think I might have a low round in me."
TOUGH HOLE: Former University of Florida golfer Carmilo Villegas was among several who ran into trouble at the 465-yard, par-4 18th, which played extremely difficult during the third round.
Villegas, who would have been paired in the final group today with Woods had he been able to par the hole, sprayed his drive to the right behind a banyan tree. With his path to the green blocked, Villegas had to punch out into the first fairway, from where he managed to get an 8-iron onto the green. He three-putted for a double bogey to drop three strokes behind Woods.
"I had no shot when I got to my ball," he said. "I started focusing on hitting a good third shot on the green, which I did, and unfortunately I missed a short (putt) there."
Villegas was not alone. The 18th was the most difficult of the day, playing to an average of 4.639. Just four players managed to birdie it. Through three rounds, the hole is averaging 4.365.
AROUND DORAL: The par-3 13th always causes fits, and Saturday was no different, despite the tee being move up from 245 yards to 220. Just 31 players out of 72 hit the green in regulation, and only one - Woods - birdied it. ... In his past five rounds at Doral, Woods is 32 under par. ... Doral boasted nine of the top 10 players in the world, and all but No. 7 Jim Furyk made the cut. No. 1 Woods led, followed by No. 9 David Toms, who was tied for fourth, No. 5 Mickelson, tied for sixth, and No. 4 Ernie Els, tied for 15th. No. 6 Sergio Garcia was tied for 34th, No. 2 Vijay Singh was tied for 49th and No. 3 Retief Goosen tied for 54th.
