Phil Mickelson found himself in trouble early on during the first round of the Masters on Thursday, but anyone who has watched Phil play over the years knows that there is no one better at getting out of it than him.
After pulling his tee shot into the trees on the par-5 2nd hole, Mickelson — the man they call “Lefty” — decided that the best way to put the ball back into play would be to play his second shot right-handed.
And as you can see, it worked. Mickelson found his way back into the fairway, though he did end up bogeying the hole.
Mickelson has never been afraid to take risks, and sometimes he ends up sliding down a cliff on his backside because of it. Fortunately, the 47-year-old is showing no signs of changing his game.
