Phil Mickelson has some fun with a patron during practice round

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Augusta, Ga--The one group that had the biggest following Tuesday included Phil Mickelson. While he may have played the leading roll, the supporting cast was impressive as well

Mickelson played aliong side Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson and Jason Dufner. Phil, who's known to make a wager at times, hit his tee shot on six over the green. A patron bet him a dollar he couldn't get up and down. Phil took the bet and procedued to lose the bet.

"He was mouthing off about a hard shot, can't get this uup and down, no chance..blah blah blah" said Phil Mickelson "And it wasn't that hard of a shot and I should have gotten it up and down (laughing) and I did hit a good shot. I had a seven footer, straight up the hill and I missed it, and I had to pay him. That's what happens when you lose. (Do you carry small bills? laughing) I had to get a five from a caddie because, no, I don't"

Oh yeah, he and Rickie Fowler played as a team today and lets just say Phil and Rickie actually made a couple of bucks by the time they finished.
