Keegan Bradley gives Phil Mickelson odd butt slap after made eagle putt (GIF)


Uh, awkward. Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley have been paired up for the first two days of the Presidents Cup at Muirfield Village. On Thursday, the duo handled the team of Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, winning 2&1.

On Friday in foursomes play, the tandem got off to a rough start but really began to roll after Mickelson rolled in an eagle putt on the 5th hole.

This prompted Bradley to storm over to Mickelson, calm himself and then awkwardly slap Phil on the butt. Weird.

Hoo boy. That move was the polar opposite on the coolness scale of Phil’s Men’s Wearhouse-esque photo with Tiger Woods and Jason Dufner.

Seriously, is there any celebratory move pulled off by golfers that doesn’t appear awkward? High-fives, you name it, it’s always difficult to watch.

And to make it even more awkward, how about how Bradley surprises Mickelson by shoving him as the two strolled off the green? Luck Philly Dog didn’t go down in a heap with that kind of push.

At the publishing of this post, Phil and Keegan are 3-UP through 8 over Jason Day and Graham DeLaet.
