It has been a busy week for Phil Mickelson's wedges. He started the week at the Scottish Open hitting a backward flop shot, continued with a wedge shot off a cart path on Thursday that led to a birdie, and now he's hitting flop shots over a life-sized cutout of himself.

The European Tour, always great with their YouTube challenges with players, brought a cutout of Mickelson for players to hit flop shots over, and they got some big names to attempt the challenge.

Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Miguel Angel Jimenez and others took their chances of clearing the Mickelson stand-in, and a lot of these guys are impressive in their own regard with the lob wedge.

We won't say who hit the ball the closest, but just know it's worth watching the video to the end to see just how close the winner got to holing the shot.
