If there's a hazard Phil Mickelson can't escape, we haven’t found it yet.

Consider his latest trick from the opening round of the third leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs at the BMW Championship.

Lefty's tee shot on the par-3 sixth hole nestled behind a row of railroad ties, a rather unusual on-course obstacle favored by Crooked Stick architect Pete Dye.

Mickelson made a tough shot look like an easy one, chipping over the ties to within a foot of the pin to save par.
