Phil Mickelson wins closest-to-the-pin contest hitting righty

Lefty can play righty.

Phil Mickelson and the other seven Americans who qualified for the U.S. Ryder Cup team off the points list traveled to Gillette Stadium on Wednesday night to take in the Patriots home park, spend some time with team owner Bob Kraft and a few of the team’s greats, as well captain Davis Love III and the assistant captains.

As part of the visit, the team had a closest-to-the-pin contest. Unfortunately for Mickelson, no one brought a left-handed club for the impromptu contest. So, Mickelson made do with the right-handed club available…and still won the competition.

The video is from the Twitter account of Patriots Hall of Famer Andre Tippett.

Not too shabby, Phil.
