Before Phil Mickelson reached the par-5 15th hole on Friday at the Waste Management Open he had made 16 birdies. Yep, that isn't an error, through 32 holes at this event Phil had birdied half of them, and he came to the par-5 with high hopes.
And then he did what you see above. Phil's drive traveled 354 yards and his second shot, from 192 yards was a dart, landing just four feet left of the pin after Mickelson calmly asked for it to "be right."
Mickelson would roll in the eagle putt, move to 18-under par after just two days in Scottsdale and it would have been a record after his birdie on No. 17 if not for his tee shot on the last, that found the water and led to a double-bogey. Still, Mickelson is four shots up and despite one swing, has been perfect for two days at TPC Scottsdale.
