Phil Mickelson just did something he’d never done in 2,200 rounds on PGA Tour

News

This is Phil Mickelson’s 30th year on the PGA Tour. And he’s never been known as the steadiest player in the world, so Lefty’s done virtually everything there is to do on a golf course.

On Friday at The American Express, the 50-year-old did something in his 2,201st round on the PGA Tour that he’s never done before: He parred every single hole.

They were pretty much all tap-ins, too. Apart from a 16-footer for par on the par-5 fifth and a 15-footer at the par-4 12th, all the par putts were inside eight feet.

The even-par (duh) round of 72 on the PGA West Stadium Course saw him miss the cut by six shots—but hey, the man made history. And that’s why we love golf. An otherwise nondescript day and a tournament that could quickly fade from memory now becomes a round he’ll never forget.
