How great is this?

Phil Mickelson was down two and hitting his second shot on the par-4 18th at the St. Jude Classic on Sunday. He nearly holed it out to tie Harris English and Scott Stallings at 11 under.

As it turned out Mickelson tapped in his birdie and Stallings bogeyed -- and it wouldn't have mattered anyway as English went on to finish at 12 under and win the tournament.

I love how shocked Mickelson is it didn't drop. You were like 140 yards out and acting like you just missed an eight-foot putt, Phil!
