Watch: It Turns Out Phil Mickelson Is Better Than You At Golf Playing Right-Handed Too

Phil Mickelson is a magician when it comes to playing golf. He's played with Rickie Fowler in each session of the Ryder Cup so far - winning one point, and losing their fourballs match yesterday afternoon.

It hasn't been going their way on Saturday's foursomes against Thomas Pieters and Rory McIlroy, with the Europeans going three up after five despite being two under. Fowler and Mickelson aren't very accurate off the tee, which means that Phil needs to conjure some of his magic to get the ball back in play.

Even if it means playing right-handed. 'Leftie', as he's affectionally called, turned his left-handed clubs around because the fences around Hazeltine meant that he had to address the ball as a right hander, and still managed to make a decent fist of it:


It may not look like much, but given that Mickelson is facing the wrong direction - relative to the hole - on the wrong side, with a club facing the wrong way - I bet you couldn't have gotten the ball closer to the green than that.

It wasn't the first time that he was forced to do that this Ryder Cup either, although the first time didn't work out as well:
