Phil Mickelson's Flop Shot over Roger Cleveland Demands Your Attention

If you are going to let anyone strike a flop shot directly over your head, make sure that person is Phil Mickelson

Golf Channel brings us this video of Lefty taking a full swing with Callaway Golf's chief club designer, Roger Cleveland, standing just a few feet in front of him. 

I guess any disaster could have just been blamed on the clubs. 

As the report mentions, Lefty has had at least a modicum of practice at this stunt before, hitting a flop shot over golf writer and coach Dave Pelz several years ago

Mickelson is back with his classic trick and teaching class while he is at it. 

Let me continue by saying I have no clue what Lefty does here. I can listen and watch and take it all in, but it does me no good the next time I hit the links. 

While I have all the confidence in the world I could take the same shot and not hit Cleveland, it's only because my golf shots never go straight. 

In this case, we know the star shoots with tremendous accuracy, which makes this shot all the more terrifying. The only thing needed is loft, and it makes the golf club designer a bit skittish out there. 

The result is awesome, but remember, Mickelson is a professional. Please do not try this at home, or do. Just make sure you order too much from the drink cart first. 

Hit me up on Twitter for more lob shots, but in tweet form.
