Whether you enjoy golf or not, last month’s Presidents Cup was certainly one to remember for US golfer, Phil Mickelson and a female spectator.

Mickelson entered the comp as the event's oldest player, and left it as the man who's played the most matches in history. He has now been in all 11 editions of the prestigious Presidents Cup.


So in all that time, was there anything that Mickelson could do to create a rousing highlight, an unforgettable moment for one spectator, and on the final day too? Of course there was!


Seasoned tour pro Mickelson sailed the opening tee shot of his singles match with Charl Schwartzel into a spectator's white umbrella off the right side of the fairway! Big Phil headed on down to the landing place of his wayward shot and once he’d removed the ball from the lady spectator’s golf umbrella took a drop, he then nailed an iron shot up toward the green, only for the ball to come up short and find its way into a bunker.


Fortunately for Mickelson he was able to play an expert shot out and, in true Mickelson style, made the putt.
