Phil Mickelson smiled and flashed a thumbs-up as he looked over his after his best hole in the PGA Championship.
The way he achieved it might have leader Rory McIlroy looking out for him this weekend.
Most impressive about Mickelson's eagle-3 on the 18th hole that brought a loud cheer at Valhalla was his aggressive approach. His second shot from the right of the fairway looked as if it was going long but sat just where he needed it.
That put an eagle within reach and Mickelson made the 9-foot putt to cap a 4-under 67. At 6-under 136, he was three strokes behind McIlroy.
