Lefty makes birdies from the straw


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Stop me if you've heard this, but Phil Mickelson made birdie on the par-5 16th hole at TPC Sawgrass on Saturday from the pine straw.

After pushing his drive into the trees left of the 16th fairway, Lefty slashed an iron short of the green and almost chipped in for eagle. The birdie moved him to 10 under and two back.

In a related item his caddie Jim 'Bones' Mackay didn't try to talk him out of the shot.
