Phil Mickelson plays a shot from under a fence


Just when you thought you had seen it all from Phil Mickelson, he goes and adds something new.

The five-time major winner made a solid start to the Farmers Insurance Open in his home city of San Diego, with an opening 69.

But things started to unravel during his second round. Heading to the par-5 18th, Lefty was on the cut mark of -1.

Rather than playing safe he got aggressive with his second shot and sliced it way left with the ball coming to rest under a metal fence.

Mickelson opted to walk around to the fence - essentially leaving the golf course - and attempt to play his ball from the other side.

Holding a hybrid the wrong way round he managed to hit the ball with the toe end of the club which clanged into the fence and sent the ball back in play but into a bunker.

There was no fairytale ending as he ended up making double-bogey to miss the cut by 1.

The event was set for a Monday finish after bad weather halted Sunday’s play. Jimmy Walker lead by 1 on -7 with 8 holes to play. Brandt Snedeker is in the clubhouse at -6.
