It's nice to see Phil Mickelson doing vintage Phil Mickelson things early on in his first start of 2016.
Playing La Quinta in the first round of the CareerBuilder Challenge on Thursday, Lefty got off to a remarkable start. He made the turn in 5-under 31. That included this gorgeous eagle hole-out from 96 yards on the par-4 eighth hole:
He would chip in for birdie on his very next hole to close out the 31.
The 45-year-old Mickelson -- a 42-time winner on the PGA Tour -- has not won since the 2013 Open Championship.
