The flop shot is a bit of an enigma for many amateur golfers. Hand me a lob wedge with the right kind of lie and I’ll put my driver to shame. Phil Mickelson is the flop shot maestro, here he is getting the shot out in public for one of the first times. Judging by the naivety of the commentators they haven’t seen many of these before.
Any self respecting amateur will take on this shot because we have a tendency to ignore course management if we think there’s a chance we’ll hit a worldie. Take a bow son!
Phil has the lowest scoring average for any player in 2016! It’s safe to say lefty is back and will be a genuine threat at Augusta.
Great to see the biggest set of balls on Tour is still hungry for wins.
