Lefty goes deep

A trick shot for charity misses its mark.

by Southland GolfPublished: November, 2012

Tough crowd.

Phil Mickelson was booed at the Monday Night Football game between the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos.
 
Lefty was supposed to hit a 56-degree wedge from one end zone to a bullseye target at the other to win up to $1 million for First Book, a local non-profit.

Before 70,000 cheering fans, Mickelson fired off a high arcing shot that airmailed the end zone in Qualcomm Stadium

"I must have had a little bit more adrenaline because the ball was a little bit long. I thought I hit a pretty good shot but it flew long," Mickelson told reporters afterward.

Not to worry though, the charity still got $50,000.

“This is an amazing experience,” Mickelson said. “In golf, we don’t get this. The 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale has nothing on this.”

I can't make it on the 16th but would be interested aotehnr time. Might not be available until the fall though (not that I am wishing that it comes soon) as I have many visitors in August. Thanks for trying to set something up.
