2012 Byron Nelson Championship: Phil Mickelson Working His Way Up The Leaderboard

After not having the greatest start to the Byron Nelson Championship in Irving, Phil Mickelson is having his best day yet in the final round of the tournament Sunday. Mickelson is 3-under par through seven holes, in total contrast to Saturday when he'd already bogeyed at that point, then ended up with four bogeys on the day.

Of course, it is still early for Mickelson, but four straight birdies on holes No. 5, 6, 7 and 8 show that he is looking to finish this tournament off strong, and possibly even sneak in and win the thing.

Mickelson isn't far behind the leaders on the board, who just teed off within the hour. Mickelson is 6-under par, tied for fifth place, while the first place score is J.J. Henry and Jason Dufner's 8-under par. Mickelson is in a tie with Ken Duke and Marc Leishman.
