Fore Long Island

Long Island golf courses and golfers mixed with a splash of PGA and other pro tours.

Tiger starts, Phil just misses eagle

   Just as Tiger Woods reached the first tee, hoping to catch lightning in his final round of this year's Masters, Phil Mickelson had a chance to make it onto the leader board. Mickelson, on the second green, had a putt for eagle. And just lipped out. He is at 4 under instead of 5 under, which would have tied him with Woods in the top 10.
