Unfortunately for Mickelson, though, 21-year-old Jordan Spieth’s performance has been legendary and record-breaking.
Still, Mickelson has been putting on a show as he and Justin Rose push the young Spieth for the lead on the grandest stage of them all.
After falling into the sand bunker on the 15th hole, Mickelson made a huge chip shot that went directly into the hole for an eagle.
Mickelson immediately threw his arms in the air to celebrate his fantastic shot and to show that he wasn’t done yet competing for the honor of wearing the green jacket.
One of the hardest things in golf to do is hitting out of the sand, but Mickelson made it look easy as he sunk the big shot.
This year’s tournament has been one of the best and most memorable events ever as Spieth sets records and golfers like Mickelson and Rose continue to hit highlight reel shots.
The amount of quality performances at The Masters this year has been absolutely unreal, much like the shot Mickelson made on the 15th hole.
