Phil Shuns Peers on Range, Warms Up in Solitude Before Round 3

British Open 2016: Recapping Round 2 at Royal Troon
GOLF.com's Jeff Ritter and Sports Illustrated's Michael Bamberger break down the action from Round 2 at the Open Championship at Royal Troon, including Phil Mickelson's solid play and Henrik Stenson's climb.

There will be no distractions for Phil Mickelson going into the third round of the 2016 Open Championship at Royal Troon, starting with his warm-up.

The five-time major champion elected to start his warmup completely alone on the range ahead of his tee time on Saturday...like, completely-and-utterly-solitary-all-the-way-in-the-back-corner-on-the-opposite-side-of-the-range alone.

Here's the range at Royal Troon early on Saturday afternoon, where you can see Lefty toiling away on his lonesome.

Oh, you can't see him? Allow us to help.

Yep, that's Mickelson, all the way in the back corner on the opposite side of the range.

Mickelson eventually moved back to the other side and joined his peers, but maybe he just needed some peace and quiet first?
