Mickelson thrilled

Phil Mickelson has won three green jackets, and he was the one asking all the questions Sunday during a practice round at the Masters. In his group was Augusta National’s newest member – former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. “Awesome,” Mickelson said after playing 18 holes with his agent and Augusta members Rice and Lee Styslinger. “She’s one of my favorite people to be around. She’s so knowledgeable and interesting to talk to. I always learn so much. When I saw she became a member, one of the first things I did was schedule a game close to Masters time. The fact she’s here, we were able to work it out. It was really cool.” Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore made history in August when they became the first women invited to join the home of the Masters. – AP
