Mickelson done for this year

Phil Mickelson likes to think he's in the hunt at Augusta National Golf Club.

That won't be the case this year in the final round of the Masters. 

Mickelson matched his worst Masters round ever with a 5-over-par 77 on Saturday. He hit into the water on each of the Amen Corner holes -- Nos. 11-13 -- and finished with four bogeys and two double-bogeys to go with only three birdies.

"I just played terrible," Mickelson said. "There's no way around it. I'm just not hitting very good golf shots, missing it in bad spots and not really knowing which side I'm going to miss it on. So my play has been beyond terrible, and that's certainly disappointing. But where else would you rather be than Augusta National with this kind of weather on a weekend?  It's just spectacular, and certainly I wish I played better, but it sure is fun being here."
