If you’ve 8 minutes to sit down with a cup of coffee today, you’re in for a treat!
Ahead of next week’s US Open at Winged foot Michael Bamberger and member Mark Loomis walk the 18th hole and discuss the calamity that befell Phil Mickelson at the 2006 US Open and would ultimately hand the trophy to Geoff Ogilvy.
Mickelson attempting a 220 yard hard cut with a 3-iron.
Looking at the sequence of shots and the series of bad choices Mickelson made with driver off the tee and a 3-iron which would ultimately go 25 yards, mixed with bad luck like the hospitality tent hop and fried egg, the Gods were not smiling on him that day.
And with +5 winning, it whets the appetite perfectly for next week.
