Mickelson, Fowler and Johnson switch it up at TPC Sawgrass

UPDATE: We now have better video, thanks to PGATour.com:

As you can see in the Instagram video above, Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson tried something a little different on the famed 17th hole during their practice round at The Players PLAYERS Championship.

The video unfortunately doesn’t show the end result – Lefty Righty and Johnson are said to have missed the green.

Fowler, though? 12 feet from the cup.

No word on whether he putted left-handed.

None of those 1,662 words include “Pinehurst.”

But he does mention the U.S. Open:

  • “After Quicken, there’s Greenbrier and The Open Championship, and of the course the U.S. Open is about six weeks away. You can understand why I want to hurry up and get better. I’d also like to play in the FedExCup Playoffs and the Ryder Cup.”
