To help celebrate Phil Michelson’s birthday SkratchTV put together this tribute video spanning years of Lefty’s classic recovery shots.

The video is more about Mickelson’s willingness to try a recovery shot and it has less to do with whether or not the shot was a success.
You see, most players would probably just take a drop to avoid embarrassment. Not Lefty. That’s boring. Nobody wants to see a drop. Spectators want to see you hit the ball with your opposite hand, or hit it off the grandstands.
Happy 46th Birthday Phil! Here’s to many more years of recovery shots.
