'Feherty' sneak peek: Phil gets tough

Sometimes the only thing that beats watching Phil Mickelson play golf is listening to him talk about it. On the March 6 season-opening episode of “Feherty,” David Feherty asks Phil for his favorite Ryder Cup story “that maybe we’re not aware of.”

In this sneak-peek clip, Mickelson picks an alternate-shot match from 2002 at The Belfry pitting him and David Toms vs. Pierre Fulke and Phillip Price.

Mickelson picks up the narrative with the Americans 2 up going to the 16th hole, a narrow par 4. How narrow? “It’s a 14-yard-wide fairway,” Mickelson recalls. “I hit the most majestic 3-wood for me, in the fairway.”

This leaves Toms with just a 9-iron to a green that funnels most everything toward the hole. But the normally steady Toms … well, let’s let Phil tell it:

“He fat-blocks it into the lip of the bunker. It is so uncharacteristic.”

And now we have a case of Phil to the rescue.

“I take out a 9-iron, open the face, hit it and it shoots out sideways, catches the slope and rolls down 4 feet from the cup.”

Feeling proud of himself  – “I’ve just hit two of the best shots I’ve ever hit: the 3-wood in the fairway – let’s not underestimate how good that is for me – and then the 9-iron out of this bunker to 4 feet,” Mickelson steps aside for Toms to hit the putt. Toms beckons him over and asks him what he thinks.

“I said ‘What do I think?’ I said ‘Don’t f— this one up, too,’ and walked off the green. To his credit, he knocked it right in and after a chuckle that we had, we ended up winning the match, 2 and 1.”
