Phil Mickelson Flop Shot Demonstration: Don't Blink!

by at . Comments

In golf, Phil Mickelson's short game is pretty much unrivaled.

In this "flop shot" demonstration, he proves this once again.

The four-time major winner demonstrated his famous trick shot with Roger Cleveland, chief club designer at Callaway Golf, standing just three feet away!

After describing how to play a successful flop shot, Mickelson barely (but effortlessly) clears Cleveland's head from an impossibly short distance:

It's not only something he does to rack up YouTube views. The shot allows Phil to arc the ball significantly to land the ball softly on firm PGA surfaces.

We didn't think it would be possible for another golf video to top Sergio Garcia hitting out of a tree in less than one week's time, but that's Lefty for you.
