Phil Mickelson Masters Video Highlights
I brought this up on Twitter early today, but I thought I'd post it over here ... for all hullabaloo Phil Mickelson's second shot on 13 is getting, it is important to remember something; the putt on 12 might have been better.
Sure, it wasn't a towering 6-iron from 206 yards, but Phil was basically trying to hit that shot 10 yards left of the pin and overdrew it. The thing cleared the water by less than a yard. If he makes the putt for eagle, I'd agree it was the shot of the championship.
Nope, the birdie on 12 was probably the biggest moment for Phil. He was struggling up to that point, having to save par on 9, 10 and 11, and hadn't had much momentum going to that point. Then, he rolls in that 25-footer for birdie and the fist-pump said it all.
Your thoughts ... second shot on 13 or putt on 12?
