VIDEO: Phil Being Phil at Presidents Cup
ABOVE IS CAPTAIN'S PICK PHIL MICKELSON earning his keep.
Mickelson's holeout for birdie at the par-3 13th gave him and Zach Johnson a 2-up lead on Jason Day and Steven Bowditch of the International team. The U.S. duo went on to win their foursomes match and the Americans won the first session of the Presidents Cup by a commanding margin of 4 to 1.
But is Lefty enjoying himself?
"This is the most fun we have all year," he said, "and to spend and share time with each other, to play with each other, it's just so enjoyable and I'm so appreciative to be on this team, to be a part of the team and now to be contributing with the points."
There you have it.
