Mickelson hits ball in fan's shorts!

Phil Mickelson took Barry Sonnenfeld’s 1995 classic “Get Shorty” to a whole new level on Saturday. 

Lefty hit an errant tee shot on the Par-4 15th hole of the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles Saturday that actually ended up in a spectator’s shorts.

Mickelson sliced his tee shot into the gallery and somehow the ball ended up in the hem of the fan’s shorts.

Mickelson saw the fan lying on his back and feared the worst, but the fan hadn’t moved because the ball was still in his shorts.

“I thought I had taken him out,” Mickelson said. “It wouldn’t have been the first time.”

Mickelson took a drop and managed a par on the hole. He finished the third round of the tournament with a 1-under 70 and entered the final round tied for the lead with Keegan Bradley.

Ever a class act, Mickelson immediately handed over a personalized autographed glove to apologize. Not only did the fan get quite the memento, but he also has a great story to share with his friends.
