Phil Mickelson going back to his coffee after making an eagle might be the golf GIF of the year

July 10, 2020

In the wide spectrum of "What will Phil do next?" possibilities, Phil Mickelson making an eagle then going back to sipping on his morning coffee isn't too surprising. After all, the five-time major champ has been very vocal about his love for java as he's gotten older. Still, it made for a fun Friday highlight—and arguably one of the golf GIFs of the year.

After a birdie on the 10th hole to begin his second round at the Workday Charity Open, Mickelson went for the par-5 11th in two, begging for his shot to "be right" and it was. Moments later he rolled in the 10-footer for eagle before brother and caddie Tim handed him his coffee mug back. Check it out:

And here it is in GIF form:


The caffeine kick helped fuel the jumpstart needed by the 50-year-old after what happened Thursday when Mickelson shot 32 on his front nine before tumbling down the leader board with a 41 on the back. We'll have to wait and see if guzzling coffee helps prevent a similar fade today.
