Phil Mickelson finally joins Twitter, sends golf fans into a frenzy with perfect first tweet

For years, golf fans have wondered What will Phil do next? Well, now we can wonder What will Phil tweet next?

That's right, Phil Mickelson — THE Phil Mickelson — has finally joined Twitter. In the words of Jim Nantz, "AT LONG LAST!" And how about this first tweet?

A GIF of him winking? Perfect. We can only hope GIFs of him dancing will follow shortly. As well as practice-round updates, candid thoughts on the USGA, and NFL picks, of course.

As you can imagine, Mickelson's first foray into social media sent golf fans into a tizzy.

Even Mickelson's siblings were pleasantly surprised by their brother's decision:

News of Phil joining Twitter spread quickly as the five-time major champ picked up more than 5,000 followers within the first 30 minutes of that first tweet. And it took him less than a half hour to send a second one:

Good to hear, Phil. We're obviously excited as well.
