THE PITCH-OUT THAT NEVER WAS

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best -

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.
