Phil Mickelson wagered his way around Augusta National Tuesday during a practice round with Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, and Jason Dufner. His most notable wager came at the par three sixth hole when he made a bet with a trash-talking fan that he could get up and down from just off the green. Mick bet a dollar. Mick lost a dollar. The best part is, Mick didn’t have a dollar.
“He was mouthing off — ‘hard shot, get this up-and-down, no chance’ — blah, blah, blah,” said Mickelson. “And it wasn’t that hard a shot and I should have gotten it up and down. And I did hit a good shot. I had a 7-footer straight up hill and I had to pay him.”
After the round, Mickelson was asked at his press conference if the reason why he couldn’t pay the man was because he doesn’t carry small bills. He laughed.
“I had to get a five from a caddie because no, I don’t.” Woah there, baller.
Mickelson had to get the money from Dufner’s caddie.
I wonder how he paid him back.
Here’s evidence of Mickelson paying up:
