Video: Phil Mickelson pulls off tricky pitch shot on the 18th hole

Phil Mickelson's game hasn't exactly been clicking on all cylinders this season. Before the Deutsche Bank Championship, you had to go all the way back to HP Byron Nelson Championship in May to find Mickelson's last top-10 finish.

So, yeah, he was struggling to find his game. Thankfully, Mickelson found a little something this week in Boston, where he finished T-4 with four consecutive rounds in the 60s. All in all, it was a solid tournament for Mickelson, who's not only gearing up for a FedExCup final push but the Ryder Cup as well.

Mickelson could still use a little bit of consistency in his golf game, but there's one area of his game that doesn't need any work. That would be his ability to get up-and-down from pretty much anywhere on the course.

Here he is doing the most Mickelson thing even, getting up-and-down from a precarious lie in the bunker on the 18th hole during the final round. Normally you'd expect the average golfer to struggle with this touchy shot, but Mickelson isn't just any golfer.

Not only does he pull it off, he makes it look incredibly easy. Oh, and he made the birdie putt to post his first top-five finish since the Masters. Not bad, Mr. Mickelson.
