Phil Mickelson airmails the green and gets booed!
By mustang6560 on 10/16/12
If you tuned into last night's Monday Night Football game in hopes of seeing Phil Mickelson attempt his $1 million "Chip4Charity" shot at halftime, then you're probably disappointed because ESPN unilaterally decided to show Chris Berman struggle for oxygen for 20 minutes instead.

But I've found video of Phil's shot and I've embedded it below. And just as I expected, Phil missed the green on his one and only attempt at $1 million. But it wasn't all a loss for the First Book Foundation. Since Phil competed in the charity promotion, KPMG donated $50k to the foundation.

Watched a cool golf video? Tip Your Editor!

Thanks for posting this. I actually tuned into MNF hoping to see it. Looks like he carried it a good distance and just got a hard bounce. On a PGA tour green that ball would've spun back. Phil has said that he has no intention of ever running for public office but I have a really hard time believing that, the way he grins and works that thumb. He is as good at glad-handing as anybody out there.

i would have rather seen him attempt the pass/punt/kick than a 100yrd shot

I blame global warming. Either that, or the second artificial turf-greenkeeper on the grassy knoll. :-P

A little more noise and distraction than out on the course, for sure. Was the goal to hit in the bullseye or stop in it?

looks like his "green" was running kinda fast.

I think he might have knocked the cameraman out.
birdieXris says:
he made too much use of the "thumbs up" i think. Change it up, Phil.

Brilliant line. And I thought it was just me who thought Berman should learn how to speask less and breathe more...
Torleif Sorenson says:
JPJeffery is right; I wish I had thought of that line.

Where was "Bones" to tell him he had too much club?
