Video: Watch Mickelson's amazing flop from the rough
In Boston, they used to have a saying about free-spirited Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez who often confounded fans with his bizarre behavior on- and off-the-field: "That's just Manny being Manny."
On Saturday at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Mass., fans watching Phil Mickelson recovering from wild tee shots to make improbable pars learned golf's version of the same phrase: "That's just Phil being Phil."
The most remarkable of Mickelson's recovery shots came on the par-3 11th, when Mickelson hit a flop shot from the patchy rough about 100 yards from the hole to inside 3 feet (and saved par). Take a look at the video above.
