CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Phil Mickelson went from planning to hit a draw away from the water to wondering if he should hit a fade that would bleed away from the bunkers toward the 14th green at Quail Hollow Club.

This was all part of the same swing thought. It ended up in the water.

Mickelson was 11 shots worse than his best score in nearly a year Friday, limping to the finish for a 4-over 75 in the Wells Fargo Championship. What mattered more was at least being in the mix.
