Mickelson rewards PGA Championship partygoers with long-distance souvenir

Phil-Mickelson-Open-Championship

Phil Mickelson became the life of a party of Kiawah Island on Monday at the PGA Championship - 122 yards away from it.

Mickelson was practicing on the Ocean Course's back nine in the evening when he and caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay arrived to the 11th tee. Fans at a somewhat adjacent house were having a party and shouted out in support to Mickelson, according to Golf.com's David Dusek.

When a fan jumped from a deck attached to the house into a pool, Mickelson decided to join the party.

After getting a yardage, Mickelson hit a wedge safely over toward the partygoers for a precious souvenir for one fan. Rowdiness, well, further rowdiness, ensued.

"You know, if that kid had dived in the pool and gotten hurt," Mickelson laughed, "I'd have gotten sued."

Way better than a dunk tank.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
