‘Lefty’ goes righty

As it turns out, Phil Mickelson is pretty good at gold playing right handed as well.

The five-time major winner showed off his skill when the US Ryder Cup team visited the Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts for an impromptu closest-to-the-pin challenge.

The catch was that the team had to use captain Davis Love III clubs, meaning Lefty now had to play right-handed.

“No sweat,” thought Mickelson…

Following his escapade, the veteran added one of his famous ‘humble brags’.

“Honestly, it’s just not that hard to play golf right-handed,” quipped Mickelson.

“I think the real challenge and enjoyment I get is from trying to play the game left-handed.

“Hitting a wedge is not that hard, righty or lefty. It’s when I get to the longer stuff, like driver, I have a hard time righty. Of course, I have a hard time hitting driver lefty, too. But hitting wedges has always been pretty easy.”

The Ryder Cup tees off at Hazeltine on Spetember 30th.
