Phil Mickelson Reluctantly Uses Golf Club Kids Made For Father's Day Present

PEBBLE BEACH, CA—In an effort to show appreciation for his Father’s Day gift, Phil Mickelson, participating in the final round of the U.S. Open Sunday, reluctantly used a pitching wedge his three children created from a cardboard tube, construction paper, a shoe box, and masking tape. “Oh, boy. I’m never going to get all the glitter out of my golf bag,” Mickelson was overheard saying as he stared down a 135-yard shot to the No. 1 green, his children eagerly looking on. “This is going to be a long day.” Mickelson then examined the pitching wedge’s yarn grip and the grooves drawn on the clubface in magic marker, sighed, set up to the ball, and proceeded to make a 47 on the hole.
