‘Phil Mickelson: Master of the Recovery Shot’ is An Amazing Tribute Video

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.
