If this wasn't real life, and real sport, nobody would believe what happened to Phil Mickelson on Saturday at The Barclays.
A day after wowing the fans with a shot out of the grandstands on the par-4 fifth hole, Mickelson's tee shot sailed left again on the same hole, hit the cart path just like it did on Friday, and bounced into the grandstands to a perfect, AstroTurf lie.
What did Mickelson do? Play the shot from the grandstands, just like he did on Friday, but this time he was able to make a par, one shot better than his adventures in the second round.
Mickelson appeared to take a little more time with this one, hitting it on the green and two-putting for the par.
As for The Barclays, fans had a little fun with his shot from Friday, painting "Phil was here" right around the area he first hit from.
