Don't try this at home, friends.
 
 
The video is a must-see. Mickelson, with Cleveland standing the length of a sand-wedge in front of him, explains and executes a flop-shot that travels just over Cleveland's head.
 
Mickelson explains before hitting the shot:
 
"Well you've probably seen this on the Golf Channel with Dave Pelz. You're not quite as tall as Dave, so this shot is not as hard. But I put you a sand-wedge away in front of me. The key to this shot is keeping the leading edge low. If my hands stop and I try to flip it up like a lob shot, the leading edge is going to go right into the ball, I'm going to blade it and you're going to feel the effects."
 
A nervous laugh from Cleveland ensues, before Mickelson proceeds.
 
Man... that guy is good! Suddenly, that flop-shot wall on Golf Channel's Big Break looks like a piece of cake.

Tiger may well be back, but Phil will kick Tigers butt @ the Masters.

Woods may be winning, but he is not a happy individual. The only thing that makes him smile is a good golf shot.

Hey Mike Young - Are you always such an A-HOLE?

Yeah, Phil. You should stick to trick shots and go on the trick shot circuit, because shooting +8, not making the cut, and finishing 118th will not cut it. Tiger is back...get used to it...
