Captain Phil Mickelson of HyFlyers GC looks on from the 17th tee during the semifinals of the LIV Golf Team Championship Miami at the Trump National Doral on Saturday, October 21, 2023 in Miami, Florida.

MIAMI – Captain Phil Mickelson had high expectations for his HyFlyers Golf Club entering this week. Unfortunately, there weren’t many low rounds from the team members on the weekend. 
HyFlyers GC fished eighth overall at the LIV Golf Team Championship in Miami on Sunday, capping an up-and-down season with plenty to be proud of as well as plenty to work on.

“Everyone has been working hard and trying to have a good end to the year,” said HyFlyers GC’s Cameron Tringale, who shot 2-under 70. “This week can make up for a bad year with three good days. We were trying to do that. To get past Friday, honestly, was good for us. We came up a little short (on Saturday), but that’s golf. You can have those days.” 
With the finish, the team earned $2.5 million. $1.5 million will go into the team account and each player earned $250,000. HyFlyers GC was competing Sunday in Tier 2 due to losing in Saturday’s semifinals. The best the team could have finished was fifth place. 
Led by Tringale, HyFlyers GC got off to a nice start. He was 3 under through his first seven holes, and teammate Brendan Steele was 2 under through his first nine holes. But they couldn’t quite get enough from the other team members to make a stronger run. 
Mickelson had a double bogey on his second hole but got the crowd going with a nice hole-out for birdie on the 18th, his 13th hole of the day. That got him to even par, and he finished the day with an even-par 72. 
Steele finished with a 1-under 71 and James Piot couldn’t get it going and shot 8-over 80. 
“The pins were tough today but there wasn’t much wind,” Tringale said. “It was pretty gettable. But obviously this course can beat you up if you’re not in the fairway. If you were hitting it nice, you had some chances.”
