Phil Mickelson, 47 years-old, has won a total of 42 events on the PGA tour, which is ninth on the all-time list! However, even he has off days.
Mickelson struggled hitting fairways on Sunday, hitting just three out of fourteen. Luckily, the veteran has a sense of humor and was able to make light of his troubles.
When the 16th tee came around, Phil Mickelson had this to say to the onlookers in the gallery:
Let’s take a moment to admire the fact I just hit a fairway.
A sense of humor always helps. ???????? pic.twitter.com/3ZCbrIvNo6
