“He looked like Ali taking hits because he wouldn’t go down.”

Phil Mickelson had a scary encounter yesterday when he hit a volunteer with his drive on the 15th hole. Thankfully he knew exactly how to handle the situation.. with a few jokes of course.
As Mickelson went over to give the guy a signed glove he joked saying “if your head was a touch softer i’d be in the fairway.” Everyone laughed and no harm was done but it’s always a scary thing seeing a golf ball coming straight for you.
Here’s a replay of the hit just for funsies.
He thanked the volunteer for all of his hard work and went on to birdie the hole! Phil sits at 4-under 68, conquering the first day of The Memorial.
“I’ve hit a lot of people, okay, a lot of people. No one has taken it that well.”
Who needs a helping hand when you can lend your head!
