Phil Mickelson hits one of the greatest flop shots ever at the Deutsche Bank

Phil Mickelson has hit some of the greatest flop shots in golf history over the course of his illustrious career, and he added another to the highlight reel in Friday's first round of the 2016 Deutsche Bank Championship.

Mickelson missed well to the right of the green at the par-5 18th at TPC Boston, winding up near a hazard line and short-sided with a nasty bunker in between him and the pin. So, with 20 yards left to go and nothing to lose after an early quadruple-bogey 8, Mickelson pulled out the full-swing flop shot.
