My first reaction to this video, “I hope he knows he is facing the wrong way.” Phil Mickelson is one of the best and well-known golfers in the world. I would say he is the best left-handed golfer.
The video takes place at The Open Championship. Looking at the grass, the wind looks intense and the ball can go anywhere. Mickelson lined up to the ball looking as if he was going to hit the ball in the opposite direction of the hole. Mickelson hit the ball in the air, and the ball ends up going backwards and ending up next to the hole. Obviously, Mickelson knew exactly what he was doing with this shot.
