From the scenes on the 18th hole at Kiawah Island when Phil Mickelson won the PGA Championship, it is clear to see that he has thousands of fans and followers from across the globe.
Sometimes, fans will go to extreme lengths in order to show their support, which is exactly what golf fan Nolan Woller did after Lefty rolled in his winning putt at the Ocean Course.
Prior to the tournament, Nolan had promised his friends that if Mickelson was victorious at the PGA Championship then he would get a tattoo of the six-time major winner on his left calf.
Not to say this motivated Mickelson, but the 50-year-old kindly obliged in fighting off Brooks Koepka and Louis Oosthuizen to become golf's oldest ever major winner.
Nolan, who is clearly a man of his word, got the tattoo on his left calf and kept his promise to his friends. He then posted the picture on social media as proof.
I’m jealous— Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) May 31, 2021
"I'm jealous," said Mickelson in response to the picture. Mickelson has always been known to engage with fans both at PGA Tour events and on social media, so it is great to see that Nolan's gesture was recognised.
The 45-time winner on the PGA Tour will be looking to complete his career grand slam when he arrives at Torrey Pines in California later this month for the US Open.
The event is being staged in Mickelson's home city of San Diego and if he was to win his first US Open here, maybe he could be swayed in joining Nolan with some body art of his own.
