WATCH: Lefty Phil Mickelson goes to Jim Nantz's house to practice on his Pebble Beach replica hole and nails it in the cup on his first shot! Holy crap... is this real!?
Via USA today: Phil Mickelson has won enough times at Pebble Beach Golf Links to know that you can't simply be "dropping bombs" for 72 holes and walk away with a trophy.
So Lefty has been working on aspects of his short game and sharing his antics on social media as he prepares for the U.S. Open next week at the century-old links overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Mickelson found himself working on his chipping game in the backyard of one Jim Nantz, he of CBS Sports broadcasting fame, located steps from the Pebble Beach course.
Nantz's yard in Monterey features a replica of the famed No. 7 hole at Pebble Beach.
