While the largest crowds Friday at Torrey Pines were undoubtedly following Tiger Woods, another superstar, Phil Mickelson, also drew a decent sized gallery. And as he so often does, Lefty rewarded one of them with a drive that got a little too close for comfort.

As always, that wayward drive came with a signed glove and friendly apology from one of the faces of the PGA Tour - a sight that's been seen so many times, it's almost not worth pointing out.

Then again, this is the one and only Phil Mickelson. You never know what he's got up his sleeve next. Case in point, check out how he signed the glove: "Next time, duck!"

Classic Phil.

Almost as classic as that drive being a part of a 4-under 68 that got him into the top 10 and within five shots of the lead heading into the weekend.
