THE PITCH-OUT THAT NEVER WAS
At the 2006 US Open at Winged Foot, Phil Mickelson was up by a shot on the final tee. A sliced drive wouldn’t have killed his chances if he’d just pitched out to the fairway. Instead, he went for the green with a 3-iron. The ball ricocheted off a tree. His next found a buried lie in a bunker. Three shots later, Phil’s double bogey had cost him the title. “I am such an idiot,” are the words we’ll never forget.
