FORT WORTH In 2008, Phil Mickelson won the Colonial PGA by way of a stunning shot on the 72nd and final hole of the tournament.

It was approach on 18 from behind a series of trees that made viewing the pin impossible. In this latest edition of Big Mac Blog Sports Science, I attempt to replicate that famous shot.

The 2015 Crowne Plaza Invitational runs May 18 to 24 at Colonial, and as you will by this video I should make the cut.
