VIDEO: Phil Mickelson hits from hospitality tent at The Barclays, makes bogey

Phil Mickelson Barclays hospitality carpet


This is the most Phil Mickelson thing ever.

Mickelson hit an errant tee shot at the short par-4 fifth hole at Ridgewood Country Club in the second round of The Barclays on Friday. That's not new. Where it landed isn't even new: in the hospitality tent (remember the 2006 U.S. Open?). What was new is that Mickelson decided to play his ball as it laid on the artificial turf-ish carpet on the outside of the hospitality tent, making a flop shot-type cut over the gallery toward the green.

Mickelson went on the make bogey, but not before fist-bumping a kid for playing it as it laid.
