PGA Tour star Phil Mickelson hit a shot Friday that would be embarrassing even for the average golfer. Mickelson shanked his first drive Friday during the second round of the PGA Championship so far left, it landed on a road.
The drive caused Mickelson to shoot a triple-bogey on the hole. Mickelson bounced back and finished the round at even par, and 1 over for the first two rounds of the PGA Championship.
"In the history of the PGA Championship, that's the worst start of any player's round."

"I think in the history of the PGA Championship, that's the worst start of any player's round," Mickelson said. "I'd have to look that up."
