That incredible 6-iron from the pine straw, behind a tree at the 2010 Masters was the percentage play according to Phil Mickelson.

On his way to winning the 2010 Masters Tournament by three shots, Phil Mickelson played one of the most epic, memorable shots in the history of the event (see a video of the shot below).

With a one shot lead, Phil Mickelson found the trees and pine straw to the right hand side of the 13th hole at Augusta National. Faced with a difficult decision, Mickelson informed his caddie he was going for it and played an incredible 6-iron to four feet. While he missed the eagle putt, he made birdie and took a two shot lead and went on to win his third green jacket.

In a promo piece for the upcoming two-part interview on the Feherty Show, Mickelson explains that it was “the percentage play”. And it’s hard not to be convinced.

Here is the shot again… percentage play?

The interview looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and will hopefully be shown in Australia on FoxSports at some point.
