VIDEO: Phil Mickelson hits a shot standing on a hospitality tent
Only Phil Mickelson would try this. No really, ONLY Phil Mickelson would try this shot.
Leave it to Phil Mickelson to liven up The Barclays on Friday afternoon.
Lefty hit his drive on the short par-4 5th hole over the green and into the hospitality tent where it came to rest on some Astroturf.
As Mickelson walked up to where it was you could see him say (with a sly grin) "maybe I can hit it."
So Phil traipsed up the stairs of the terrace to the delight of his legions and tried to get one to settle on the green from the hospitality tent deck.
He's in there somewhere:

Unfortunately he hit it a little long and ended up making bogey.
That didn't keep him from making some new fans, though.
