Never is Phil Mickelson in better form than when he makes the annual pilgrimage to Augusta National.

Lefty played a practice round -- or gambled a practice round, however you want to look at it -- with Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, and Jason Dufner on Tuesday and ended up making a wager with one of the patrons looking on.

It was on No. 6, a par 3, the patron told him he couldn't get up and down from off the green, even put up a dollar on it.

"He was mouthing off -- 'hard shot, get this up-and-down, no chance' -- blah, blah, blah," said Mickelson. "And it wasn't that hard a shot and I should have gotten it up and down. And I did hit a good shot. I had a 7-footer straight up hill and I had to pay him."

The best part is that Mickelson didn't have the money. Well, he didn't have it in the form he needed. He was asked in his press conference whether or not he carried small bills. He laughed.

"I had to get a five from a caddie because no, I don't."

Jason Dufner's caddie obliged.

There's even photo evidence of the event:
