It was a brutal day at the Texas Open. The reigning U.S. Open champion didn't break 80, high winds made an already tough golf course insanely hard, and Phil Mickelson's 8-iron broke for no apparent reason.

With the ball below his feet in a fairway bunker on No. 12, the head of Mickelson's 8-iron flew off immediately after impact.
