VIDEO: Phil Mickelson lands in Old Course Hotel balcony with 17th tee shot



Phil Mickelson's unlikely British Open final-round charge ended on Monday with a late wake-up call for guests in the Old Course Hotel.

The five-time major champion's tee shot on the Road Hole 17th at the Old Course was pulled to the right and landed on the roof of the restaurant of the inn which juts into the penultimate hole at St. Andrews. The ball bounced off that roof, then landed in the balcony of one of the hotel rooms.

From there, Mickelson made triple-bogey 7, erasing half of the six birdies he had made in the final round to that point. He ended up with 3-under 69 to finish at 7-under 281 for the championship.
