Looks like the Chargers weren't the only ones to disappoint the San Diego fans on Monday night. Phil Mickelson did his part as well, missing a 100-yard chip shot that could have triggered a $1 million donation to the First Book charity program, which would have provided 400,000 books to young children.
The goal for the PGA Tour legend was to hit a five-foot target from across the length of the Qualcomm Stadium field during halftime of the Chargers-Broncos game on Monday night.
I'll save the suspense for you if you want to watch the video below, but suffice to say, many young, book-hungry children are going to be very displeased* with the result (even Norv Turner seemed dismayed when Mickelson told him what had happened).
*Yes, I'm being snarky here for no good reason. I think it's commendable for Mickelson to have given his time and effort to the cause, and the $50,000 that actually was donated is impressive.
