First Phil showed off his dance moves. Now he's joined Twitter.

Mickelson, the five-time major champion, tweeted for the first time on Wednesday morning. His first tweet couldn't have been better: An excited Phil included a GIF of his double wink.

Not long after tweet No. 1, Mickelson added another.

Phil's bio: "Husband . Father . Golfer . Lefty."

Mickelson is not only looking for a strong FedEx Cup Playoffs run, but he's also trying to earn a spot on the Ryder Cup team. The eight automatic spots are set, so U.S. captain Jim Furyk has four captain's picks to make. Mickelson was No. 10 in the final Ryder Cup standings.
