Photo of the year candidate: Phil Mickelson goes into the water
Phil Mickelson sneaked inside the cut line with this wild birdie at the last hole at the Texas Open on Friday.
Here at Eye on Golf we like to put forth some of the best golf photos we see every week. Photos that are too good for a tweet. Photos that capture the sport. Here's one of those.
Always birdie the last, right?
On Friday Phil Mickelson needed a four at the par-5 18th hole at the Texas Open to avoid missing the cut and he had to go into the water to get it.
After a poor second shot Mickelson got up and down from the water for birdie and sneaked inside the cut line.
"If there ever was a shot to play out of the water, it would be the last shot of the day, right?"
Here's a GIF of the entire event which, it appears, somehow wasn't captured on film.
