Apparently, Woller gave a word to his friends that he’d get a silhouette of Mickelson inked on his body if the veteran golfer won the second major of the year. To his surprise, it came true and Woller stuck to his promise. 

“@PhilMickelson I told my buddies I would get Phil’s logo tattooed on my left calf if he won the PGA Championship. I fully expect my golf game to dramatically improve as I harness the power of 1,000 Phil’s,” Woller wrote on Twitter showing off the tattoo on his left calf. 

The post went viral ever since Woller published it, and fans all over the internet shared it. Eventually, it reached the eyes of Phil Mickelson who was impressed with the heights his fans go to celebrate his success. 

“I’m jealous,” a bemused Mickelson responded to Woller’s new tattoo. There’s no doubt that the fresh ink would’ve delighted Mickelson, who cruised to victory at The Ocean course with a two-stroke lead.

Moreover, Mickelson also became the fourth golfer to register a PGA Tour win in four different decades. Yes, you read that right. Such is the amazing longevity of the San Diego native. Does he have one more major victory left in him before he steps away from the PGA Tour?
