Phil Mickelson (Farmers Insurance Open)

Needing to hole a wedge shot for eagle from 72 yards away on the final hole of regulation to get into a playoff with Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson had caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay tend the flagstick because he didn't want it in the way in case he hit it on the fly. While he gave a valiant effort, Mickelson couldn't pull off the miraculous. He did, however, reaffirm his position as the game's ultimate showman.
