LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Phil Mickelson lost his cushion, but not the
lead at the Northern Trust Open.
Mickelson watched Jeff Quinney make a hole-in-one on the fabled
sixth hole at storied Riviera Country Club but saved par on the
18th hole for a 1-under 70 for a one-stroke lead. This is the one
PGA Tour stop that has eluded Mickelson in his career.
Quinney made a 35-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 67
that set up what appears to be a two-man race in the final round.
Mickelson is at 11-under 202 after his 1-under 70.
