Golf Gods Strike Mickelson?

During the final round of the 2010 Masters, a strange thing happened to Phil. On the par-5 second hole, Mickelson rolled a birdie putt on the perfect line to the hole. But just as he putt, a piece of debris landed directly on the line and threw the ball off course.

Coincidence? I think not. The announcers claim it came from a pine tree, but there wasn't a tree within 100 yards of the hole and the wind was calm. I think that the Golf Gods were watching from above and dropped a morsel from their party mix onto the green. Whether it was by accident or intentional, it certainly came from those heavenly arbiters of the game! Regardless, it's just further evidence of their existence.

See it for yourself:

But in the end, the Golf Gods struck down Tiger for his Philandering ways by letting his arch-nemesis win his favorite major.

Woods never mentioned them in any of his many apologies . . the Golf Gods didn't like that

just getting in to golf myself i think phil mickelson is class. Like after all he went through this year he turns around and wins the masters even though my money was firmly on anthony kim (after the form he was in before the masters).I ve learnt my lesson my money is phil in the pga tour!! Anybody in the same boat

Great post! I like to imagine some bored kids, ragged along by their parents, casually flicking a twig onto the course - only to have it swept off by the wind and deposited right in the path of Mickelson's ball! One of those slow-motion "mum is going to kill me" moments...

A classic moment, whatever the cause.

I love this blog, keep it up!

If that had happened to anyone else besides Phil, I am sure we would have seen some nasty, but fun scenes on that green. That was crazy!!!
