Phil Mickelson hadn’t been making a ton of noise on The Old Course this week. The five-time major winner was 4-under after three underwhelming rounds (70-72-70).
That all started to change during Monday’s final round.
Lefty made his patented final round charge, with six birdies through 15 holes. Now at 10-under par, Mickelson was knocking on the door. Then came the road hole on 17.
Mickelson hit a tee shot so bad, that well, you just have to see this one for yourself.

Poor Phil. We’re left to dream what would’ve happened if Mickelson had knocked in another birdie or two. Instead, Mickelson triple-bogeyed the 17th and parred 18 to finish 3-under for his round, and 7-under for the Championship.
