Phil Mickelson’s Quest for Victory on LIV Golf Continues Despite Weather Delay
As the PGA Tour’s FedEx St. Jude Championship faces a weather delay, the golf world’s attention is fixed on Phil Mickelson’s pursuit of his first win on LIV.
Currently in Memphis, TN, the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Championship hit a snag due to lightning in the vicinity. This unfortunate weather situation is expected to cause a delay of approximately an hour and a half.
Leading the pack at 14-under, Lucas Glover was about to tee off when the horn sounded, signaling the temporary pause in play.
Although golf fans may be frustrated by this interruption, it presents a unique opportunity for LIV Golf, the broadcasting platform. While CBS provides coverage with Jim Nantz dissecting weather patterns on a seemingly continuous loop, Phil Mickelson is making his way towards potential victory on LIV Golf over at The CW network.
The unfolding scenario has caught the attention of many, with Twitter user Jared Stacy noting the significant moment for LIV Golf. Sunday’s viewing numbers have the potential to reflect this unusual circumstance, with even more viewers tuning in as the PGA Tour remains in the rain delay.
Regardless of personal opinions, Mickelson continues to be a beloved figure among fans. Aged 53, securing a win against professional golfers at the peak of their game would be a remarkable feat.
Starting the final round four shots behind leader Cameron Smith, Mickelson narrowed the gap to just two with an exceptional tee shot on the par-3 4th, resulting in a birdie.
However, Smith swiftly responded with a birdie on the 6th, extending his lead to three shots once again. Currently in second place at 5-under par at Trump Bedminster, Mickelson displays his unwavering determination.
Amidst the weather delay, the FedEx Cup Playoffs remain on hold, with notable names such as Jordan Spieth, Max Homa, and Rory McIlroy still in contention at the top of the leaderboard.
Nonetheless, Lucas Glover’s superb performance seeks to secure his second consecutive victory following his timely win at the Wyndham Championship last week.
