2013 Bridgestone Invitational leaderboard: Phil Mickelson at 2-under after 9

Gregory Shamus

Looking to continue his historic hot streak, Lefty will need to overcome an unspectacular start to his Bridgestone Invitational.

Coming off his historic victory at the British Open, Phil Mickelson has a lot of work ahead of him after his opening front nine at the 2013 WGC-Bridgstone Invitational if he hopes to keep his hot streak going.

Through nine holes, Lefty sits at 2-over, currently good for a 47th-place tie on the tournament's big board. Things started out smooth, as Mickelson birdied his first two holes before knocking in an eagle on No. 3. He then hit a rough patch, bogeying three of the next four holes. He evened out his front nine with birdies on No. 8 and 9.

Webb Simpson, meanwhile, currently sits atop the leaderboard after finishing his day 6-under, and is followed closely by Henrik Stenson at five-under. Four players are logged in a four-way tie for third, including Tiger Woods, looking to overcome his disappointing finish at Muirfield.
