Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler went ahead and used the flag at 16 as target practice.
All of the players put their shots within 10-feet of the hole and easily made their birdie putts. While it is not uncommon for professional golfers to do exactly this, it was still a great moment to watch.
For one, you have the veteran, Matt Kuchar vying to win his first major championship. Then, there’s Phil Mickelson who is the proud owner of 3 green jackets and seeking another. And of course, Fowler, who is considered one of the top players within the crop of young tour players.
A mix of old and new, at golf’s most tradition-laden club and with the world watching, these players showcased just how much fun the timeless game of golf and the tradition of The Masters Tournament can be.
