Phil Mickelson had what you’d call a Phil Mickelson-like round. The 5-time major winner dropped 5 impressive birdies against 4 damn bogeys, highlighted by several magical Phil-only type shots.
Including this flop-shot on par-5 12th.
The Phil flop shot.

Phil would go on to make the putt for birdie to drop to 2-under. But then he gave it back two holes later with a bogey-5 on the par-4 14th. After round one, Phil stands at 1-under, and 5 shots back of clubhouse leader Francesco Molinari.
