He gave a ball to Mickelson for an autograph and said, “Hi Phil, you are my favorite player. I’m Shawn. I’m playing Kiawah tomorrow. Any tips?” to which, Phil replied, “Ah, it’s not that hard.” 

Phil Mickelson had won the 2021 PGA Championship at the Kiawah Island, and hence the fan asked Phil for tips. However, the six-time major championship winner, as usual, with no hesitation, offered an epic response.

Meanwhile, Mickelson won the event with a score of -6, which shows that the course was on the tougher side. His short game, as usual, was up to the mark, but the thing which helped him throughout the week was his off the tee shots.

Surely, Phil will now aim for another strong finish this week on the Champions Tour and get himself a spot in the Charles Schwab playoffs, which is scheduled in November. Do you think the veteran can do it?
