The Shots That Defined the Masters

Phil Mickelson's second shot, 12th hole, Friday

Mickelson's short week was highlighted/lowlighted by several big numbers, none as curious as the 6 he made on Augusta National's shortest hole. He avoided Rae's Creek with his tee shot, but blasted a straightforward bunker shot in front of the green into the back bunker. The resulting triple bogey proved particularly costly when he missed the cut by one stroke, failing to make the weekend at the Masters for the first time since 1997.
