It was the most Phil Mickelson shot ever.
Mickelson has always been creative and daring on the golf course, and another chapter in that book was written during the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open on Friday at Torrey Pines.
Mickelson sliced his second shot on the par-5 18th of the North Course — his ninth hole of the day — and his ball came to rest next to a boundary fence. But of course Mickelson found a way to play it.
Lefty went around the fence — since it was a boundary fence he did not get free relief — and hit the ball with the toe of his hybrid while standing on the asphalt.
He knocked his ball into a bunker, which wasn’t bad given the circumstances, but he ended up three-putting for a double-bogey and dropped to 1-under for the tournament.
