Scotland’s Bunkered magazine has a video from golfer Andrew Little that captures an awesome Phil Mickelson-like backward shot from beside a brick wall. The video comes from the 16th at Leven Links in Fife, about 30 minutes from the Old Course at St. Andrews, with its famous Road Hole that features a similar setup and has inspired similar shots. (You can get an up-close look at the 17th hole at St. Andrews in this video.)

The 13-second clip shows the setup, swing and arc of the shot backward over the golfer’s head and features plenty of background whooping and guffawing. It's worth a look.
