Mickelson thrills record crowd
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Phil Mickelson drew the loudest cheers from the biggest crowd in golf history Saturday at the Phoenix Open.
Mickelson nearly aced the par-3 16th, hitting a 9-iron to a foot to set up a birdie on the rowdy stadium hole packed with nearly 20,000 screaming fans.
“What’s funny about that is 172 yards is a very tough 9-iron for me to get there, but I immediately take 5 yards off and in my head I had 167,” Mickelson said. “The reason is you always have a little bit of adrenaline here, and the ball goes a little bit longer on 16.
