WATCH: Phil Mickelson shanks his first drive into the street

Phil Mickelson imploded on the first hole at Baltusrol today.

First, he drove his ball into the street near residential houses. Not the way you want to start off the Friday of a major championship.

Then his third shot (because that was clearly OB) landed onto the cart path, where he shanked it again into someone’s backyard! Not until his 7th shot did he make it onto the green.

To make matters worse, the PGA uses brown as the color of their triple bogeys, so there’s just a big poop stain on Lefty’s score card.

Poor Phil. Although he’s made up for it, he’s still one stroke below the cut line.
