Phil Mickelson is getting a chance to start packing early for the British Open.

Mickelson shot his second straight 1-over 71 Friday at the Greenbrier Classic. With the projected cut at 1 under, it's likely Mickelson will miss weekend play for the second straight year.

He says he plans to head to Europe next Friday. The Open starts July 19 at Royal Lytham and St. Annes.

Tiger Woods had an afternoon tee time Friday and also began the day at 1 over. A bad round for him would mark the first time as professionals that Woods and Mickelson have missed the cut in the same tournament in the same year.

Jonathan Byrd and rookie Charlie Beljan are tied for the lead at 8 under among the early finishers.
