The best of #PhilWasHere: A meme is born from Phil Mickelson crime scene photo


A new meme was born on Saturday thanks to Phil Mickelson finding the hospitality area at Ridgewood C.C.'s fifth hole in consecutive rounds at The Barclays.

The Ridgewood grounds crew decided to memorialize Mickelson hitting off the outdoor carpet back left of the green in the first two rounds with what amount to crime-scene photos.

Then, the Internet took over, creating the #PhilWasHere meme, placing Mickelson at the scene of a lot of places.
