This just in: Phil Mickelson is remarkably proficient with the short game (video)
The start Phil Mickelson got off to during the first round of the BMW Championship on Thursday at Conway Farms certainly did not go how Lefty probably envisioned on the first tee.
After a bogey on the par-4 13th hole, Mickelson was sitting at two-over, needing something to get him back on track.
With birdies on 14 and 15, Mickelson worked his way back to even par, and Philly Dog made it three-straight birdies with a miraculous chip-in from the rough after his approach with his second shot missed the green right.
Even though it was a more conventional shot and he didn’t need to use the backwards flop shot he worked on at the British Open, Phil’s fantastically executed and flawlessly paced shot was a true thing of beauty.
