Phil Mickelson’s Hybrid From 128 Yards

PHIL MICKELSON WAS IN TROUBLE on the 427-yard par-4 9th hole at TPC Four Seasons Resort Las Colinas. Phil parked his tee shot behind some trees to the left of the fairway. Instead of playing it safe (not a Lefty trademark), he reached for a hybrid and punched a low one under and around the trees that ran up on the green 16 feet from the cup. And, yes, he made the putt for a birdie.

Mickelson went on to shoot 69 and is at 1 under at the midway point of the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Jason Dufner, 7 under after two rounds, leads by 1 stroke over Ryan Palmer, Chad Campbell, Matt Kuchar, Pat Perez, Dicky Pride and Marc Leishman.

I saw this shot yesterday while watching the coverage, quite amazing. He made it look so simple.
You could see him come down slightly across the line to produce the slice spin on the golf ball.

Mickelson at his best!
