    Phil Mickelson hit his tee shot to the par-4 12th at TPC San Antontio in Round 1 of of the Valero Texas Open into a fairway bunker. After a short conversation with caddie Jim Mackay, Mickelson settled on an 8-iron for the 154-yard approach.

    Mickelson took the club back and through the ball. After impact, the club suddenly felt a whole lot lighter. That's because the club head had come off the iron and flown just outside the bunker. 

    Naturally, Mickelson was befuddled as his ball didn't land even close to his target.

    Unfortunately, Mickelson went on to make bogey on the hole. However, he did shoot 2-under 70 in tough conditions.
