Watch Phil Mickelson hit amazing bunker shot, wave to fans in a boat at Whistling Straits

HAVEN, Wis. -- It's early on Saturday the PGA Championship. And Phil Mickelson is already doing Phil Mickelson things.

Ball next to the edge of the bunker. 179 yards out. Hits it to 3 feet. Standard Lefty.

It's no butt-slide down the mounds like he did yesterday. But Lefty hit a remarkable bunker shot on Whistling Straits' fifth hole on Saturday to set up a birdie and get to 1-under for the day.

There are low scores out there. Can Lefty be one of those big movers? He birdied the sixth for his third birdie of the day. We know now he's capable of moving quickly at Whistling Straits, as evidenced by one of the best highlights of Friday.
