SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (AP)

Phil Mickelson drew the loudest roars from the biggest crowd in golf history at the Phoenix Open, nearly acing the par-3 16th to set up a birdie on the rowdy stadium hole on Saturday.

The third-round crowd estimated at 179,022 broke the tournament record of 173,210 set last year, also on a Saturday at fan-friendly TPC Scottsdale.

Mickelson birdied the final four holes and five of the last six for a 7-under 64 and a six-stroke lead over Brandt Snedeker.

The 42-year-old has led after each round, scoring 60-65. He fell a stroke short of the tour record for the first 54 holes, and matched the tournament mark set by Mark Calcavecchia in 2001.
