Swing Sequence: Phil Mickelson

April 2010
Phil Mickelson

Analysis by Butch Harmon, based at Rio Secco Golf Club in Henderson, Nev.

LAST PIECE OF THE PUZZLE

A few years ago, I took a long look at my game and concluded that more consistent iron play was critical if I was going to contend more often, especially in the majors. With a lot of help from Butch Harmon, I've worked hard to make my swing with the irons sharper and more efficient. It's been an ongoing process, but I'm definitely seeing results. Not only am I hitting more shots close, my misses are more acceptable, so I'm saving more pars. --Phil Mickelson
