British Open Leaderboard: Phil Mickelson Finishes At 3-Over

Most of the notables have finished their opening round in the 2012 British Open on Thursday. While Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy finished strong at 3-under, just a few strokes off the pace set by current leader Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson had a shaky start and is continuing less-than-stellar play that he has exhibited in the last few months.

Mickelson finished his opening round on Thursday by shooting a 3-over. He settled down and made par over his last six holes, but he bogeyed four times on his front nine. He suffered through a backbreaking stretch of three straight bogeys, beginning with a double-bogey on the par-5 seventh hole.

Mickelson will try to regroup and regain some ground on Friday.
