Phil Mickelson thrilled the Arizona crowd on day three of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship with an incredible flop shot on the par-4 12th hole.
Mickelson's drive left him with a difficult but short approach into the green, with the pin tucked into the front left of the putting surface.
Surrounded by fans waiting for a moment of greatness, Lefty delivered. He took a full swing and sliced under the ball, sending it high into the sky.
It came down perfectly and almost rolled into the hole. It was a classic moment and arguably one of the best shots we have seen from Mickelson in recent years.

He tapped his ball in for a birdie which contributed to his round of 68. He sits on 13-under-par for the tournament, just three shots behind Jim Furyk with 18 holes remaining.
The six-time major champion has taken the PGA Tour Champions by storm in 2021. In just five appearances, he has won three times and now he has his eyes on the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in the final tournament of the season.
Bernhard Langer, Fred Couples and Darren Clarke are all within six shots of the lead in what promises to be an exciting and dramatic final day at Phoenix Country Club.
Mickelson, still ranked at number 34 in the world, was looking forward to "hitting bombs" this week in Arizona and he looks to be a man of his word.
He became the oldest ever major winner when he won the PGA Championship back in May and he has thoroughly enjoyed his debut season on the veteran's tour.
