Phil Mickelson has upgraded to the champions tour, and his time has there been nothing short of exciting. Of his four appearances, he has a staggering three titles to his name. This week, however, after a disappointing end in Virginia, he gave us a delightful hole-in-one action at a KPMG event.

The par-5 9th hole at the Country Club the 51-year-old really gave a hard time. On Saturday, he drove his first two shots out of bounds. Playing his fifth shot from the tee itself, he finished the hole with a score of 9-under. This led the veteran to play 2-over par, which successfully pushed him down on the leaderboard.

The 547-yard hole that was birdied by Mickelson on Friday gave him trouble on the last day, yet again. Undoubtedly, he approached it with the aim of compensating for the previous experience. However, co-incidentally, he again finished the hole with a disappointing quadruple bogey.

But he didn’t let this defeat crush him. In the true spirit of sportsmanship, he came back a week later and entertained us with a satisfying shot.
