Phil Mickelson hits shot onto hotel balcony
Phil Mickelson nearly made one of his patented final-round runs at the British Open on Monday, and then he hit a drive onto a hotel balcony.
Mickelson stepped to the tee on the 17th hole having gone 6-under for the day to put him at 10-under for the tournament. The leaders were sitting at 12-under at the time, so Phil had an outside chance of contending for a win if some nasty weather rolled through later in the day.
Unfortunately, his tee ball ended up here:
Mickelson had to hit another ball from the tee and ended up making a triple-bogey, erasing any hope he had of putting pressure on the leaders. Phil will have to go home and weep into his pile of money.
