2013 U.S. Open: Phil Mickelson holes out for eagle, share of lead (VIDEO)

Phil-Mickelson-Open-Championship

If Phil Mickelson wins the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club, he already marked the spot to put a plaque in his honor.

After burning the edge of the cup with putt after putt after putt on the front nine of the final round, Mickelson decided to not have to rely on it to score. At 2 over par for the championship, Mickelson hit a wedge from 76 yards away in the right rough at the par-4 10th hole.

Mickelson's shot landed just over the bunker, bounced forward once, then rolled into the hole for an eagle 2.

The left-hander, who turns 43 on Sunday, jumped up in the air in a moment reminiscent of when Mickelson clinched his first major at the 2004 Masters with a putt on the 72nd hole.

The eagle got Mickelson back to even par for the championship and into a tie for the lead with Justin Rose.

Rose is familiar foe of Mickelson, as the two faced off on Singles Sunday in the final day of last fall's Ryder Cup. Rose made several big putts down the stretch to beat Mickelson 1 Up as the Europeans completed a record comeback to win at Medinah.
