WATCH: Mickelson takes advice from young fan

5 September 2017 21:51

There are few more experienced golfers on tour than Phil Mickelson.

But even a five-time major champion needs a helping hand every once in a while.

Having finished tied sixth in the Dell Technologies Championship over the weekend, Mickelson found himself in the rough during a pro-am round at TPC Boston.

Unsure of his next move, Mickelson asked a young fan for advice, saying: "Would you go for it here out of the rough or would you lay up?"

Young Riley replied: "If I could hit my 3-wood 260, I would probably go for it."

Mickelson took his shot and was suitably satisfied with Riley's contribution, joking that he could caddie for him "anytime".
