WATCH Phil Mickelson hit a flop shot over a man 2 yards in front of him

Published

on

On the Gear Dive podcast, Fred Couples told Johnny Wunder that Phil Mickelson is the best judge of a lie (and the shots he can execute from a certain lie) in the game of golf.

This video from Carnoustie yesterday is testament both to that fact and a reminder that Phil Mickelson’s short game is truly singular.

Former European Tour pro Gary Evans was the guinea pig.

Here’s the shot from another angle. That’s gotta be a 64-degree Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind, no?

Mother of golf gods! Check your trousers, Gary! How crazy is that shot? There’s plenty of puffery when it comes to Phil’s short game, but that shot is simply insane. Would love to see the Trackman data on that flop.

I mean, if Phil doesn’t get the contact he wants and you get hit, you gotta hope to get pelted in the stomach or chest…and not the jewels or the face.

What do you think, GolfWRX members? Would you take Evans place for viral video fame? A few bills from Mickelson’s famed cash wad?

    Phil seems to have lost some distance since I last saw him hitting it flat out….!

    The hardest thing about that shot is the mental part of it. I imagine many of the pros can hit that shot with no one standing in front of them. To do it with someone standing there takes an incredible amount of confidence and mental strength.

    This act is what, 10 years old? If it was any kind of impressive, Dave Pells would be standing in. Oh, that’s right, it’s already been posted in the golf rags. Yawwwwwn. Hey Pickle, what rule are ya gonna bend this week? And to think, this active clown has been Hall Of Famed. Ha! Golf is goofier than ever………..Hall Of Flaming active players??

    Not that hard when you’re using a 70-degree wedge (bent from 64 and bounce ground off for The Open condition) lol

      Sure. Not that hard. Shot went 8 feet in the air and 7 feet forward. Tons of room for error.

      Don’t just talk sir! If it’s that easy, send GolfWRX a video of you recreating the shot and we’ll be happy to post it and sing your praises as well.

        I think that was meant as sarcasm, I think?

        The clubhead speed vs. ball speed is just crazy! Such a big swing with decent amount of speed and have it go up and down so soft….damn lol.

          Who knows on this site with all these +4 handicap douche bags that for some reason can’t appreciate a good golf shot. Golf WRX is like Fox News but worse.

Johnny Miller returns to the airwaves on Real Golf Talk, Callaway’s new podcast

Published

on

Johnny Miller is back sharing his opinions on the game on Callaway’s new podcast: Real Golf Talk, which aired its first episode today (listen here on Soundcloud).

The longtime NBC golf announcer retired from broadcasting earlier this year, but Miller now features alongside avid golfer and television host Chris Harrison on the podcast, which will air six episodes in 2019 and eight in future seasons.

Speaking on the opportunity to work alongside Johnny Miller on the podcast, co-host Chris Harrison stated

“Johnny Miller was a legend on the course and in the TV booth there was no equal. I know he’s got more to say on the world of golf and the world in general. There’s no chance I’m missing the opportunity to sit next to him and hear what he has to say.”

Miller (who, sidebar, will play all Callaway products) said this

“I am proud be returning to Callaway and working with the company’s incredible team on some exciting new projects. I’ve had so many great experiences with the company, from playing their equipment to working with Mr. Callaway and so many amazing people over the years. It feels like a homecoming for me, and I think golf fans will really enjoy what we have coming, starting with our new Real Golf Talk podcast.”

Real Golf Talk with Johnny Miller is a part of the Callaway Podcast Network and is available on Apple, Spotify, and Soundcloud.
