Trending: Westwood pulls a Mickelson

February 27, 2012

The chances of hitting a golf ball up a spectator's shorts can only be matched by hitting one down the shirt of another. Which is just what Lee Westwood did yesterday in his semifinal round match-up against Rory McIlroy.

It's hard to imagine a more improbable shot than Phil Mickelson's "shot up a man's shorts," but Westwood might have outdone him with this delicately placed tee shot on the par-5 13th hole at the Accenture Match Play Championship. Lee also one-upped Phil with his wistful commentary when, after approaching the woman he just plunked, suggested she walk 250-yards further up the fairway.
