Phil Mickelson hits the most Phil Mickelson recovery shot ever

August 23, 2014

If you're lucky enough to snag a hospitality seat at a PGA Tour event you'll enjoy food, free flowing drinks, and, maybe, Phil Mickelson.

That's where Phil the Thrill found himself in the video above when he tried to drive the par-4 fifth hole today at The Barclays in Paramus, N.J. The drive hit something and bounded into the hospitality area. Phil turned down a beer offered by a fan before grabbing a wedge and hitting his recovery shot into a greenside bunker.

Phil bogied the hole, of course. But so what? It's one more chapter in the history of one of the most entertaining professionals in the history of the game.
