Saturday at Augusta National during the Masters is typically a big swing day. Phil Mickelson is taking the latter phrase quite literally.

Mickelson filmed his drive up Magnolia Lane on Saturday voicing some thoughts on both the partner he was paired with for the day and his strategy on attacking the course.
He is paired with Matt Kuchar and the two have a little bit of history. They have been teammates in the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup and in 2017, Mickelson told Golf Digest that Kuchar was the biggest trash talker on the PGA Tour.
Mickelson, known to throw his money around quite liberally, took a few jabs at Kuchar insinuating that maybe he doesn’t pay off his side bets.
He also went on to talk about how important it is to drive the ball at Augusta and that his club head speed was the fastest it had been in a really long time.
Mickelson and Kuchar both sit at minus-four, three shots behind the leaders at minus-seven and the pair is slated to tee off at 10:45 p.m.
