I've seen that shot hit successfully by double digit handicappers, so 'Meh'.

FIGJAM doing something stupid on the final round to blow a tournament?  Must be a day that ends in 'y'.

I kinda don't understand his approach there. On the rare occasion I find myself in this sort of situation, rather than turn the club "upside down" so you can still use the face from the opposite side -- a shot which requires you to hit with the toe of the club and keeps the hosel exposed -- I just play with the backside of the club head. You're only trying to advance the ball a few feet there ... why try to hit it with the face in that scenario?

Because you are Phil Mickelson, and it is the only shot you have. Phil is the kind of guy who would practice this shot. He probably stood over it and said to himself "c'mon Phil, just like in practice".

No it isn't. That's the point. If he played the shot with the sole of the club down and struck the ball with the back of the club head, he'd have been better off.

I would have used my foot wedge.
