Wow, this has to be one of the best finishes by Phil Mickelson. Remember I did a swing analysis of Phil yesterday and predicted he’d win?
Lol… it was a very awesome final hole stretch as Phil made a par on the 15th hole to stay alive, then got out of major tree trouble on the 18th where he sank the birdie for the win.
On the 18th hole, Phil hit a nice wild short iron hook out of the rough and trees. He hit the shot about 8 feet which was incredible with the amount of pressure that was riding but Phil knows how to handle that.
The results have been completely different if Phil didn’t putt as good as he did on the last 4 holes.
Great stuff Phil and let’s see if he keeps ‘em coming.
Sometimes, great focus and great shots come when you have to get out of trouble. In this case, it definitely helped Phil make a birdie and the win.
