After rolling in a testy 4-foot putt at the 18th hole, he was one of the fortunate ones Friday. He gets to keep playing on the weekend at Augusta National. Not so for Phil Mickelson, who missed the Masters cut for the first time since 1997 after making a mess of three holes. Lefty took triple-bogey on two of them, a double-bogey on another, and wound up with one stroke too many. “I didn’t play great.

For Adam Scott, it was pure joy — at least for a day. With a green jacket already in his collection, Scott felt a sense of calm that carried over to the golf course. The result: a 3-under 69 that got the laid-back Aussie off to just the kind of start he was looking for at the Masters.
