Watch: Steph Curry Becomes the Latest Victim of Phil Mickelson’s Famous ‘Flop Shot’ Challenge

Published

on

Everyone following Phil Mickelson is aware of his golf prowess, and his history with crazy flop shots, including his Flop Shot Challenge while at the 2014 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open. Mickelson has had some incredible flop shots moments over the course of his career. The most recent one was with Golden State Warriors icon Steph Curry, who often plays golf as a hobby.

 

 

Mickelson’s recent interaction with Curry has grabbed everyone’s attention.

The two icons have been together on the field at the Workday Charity Classic, and Mickelson’s flop shot over the Warriors icon has become a wildly shared video on the internet after some time.

Does Steph Curry flinch during Phil Mickelson’s flop shot?
“You’re a little taller than my normal test subjects here,” Mickelson started. “I’m going to just drive the club into the ground and hope for the best”. Curry smiled, trying to lower himself on the ground as Mickelson prepared.

 

 

Mickelson’s doubt was valid, and Curry – despite his bravado – did flinch ever so slightly. While Mickelson and his flop shot are famous, the Warriors star’s movement seemed inevitable. He screeched when Mickelson finally shot the ball, teeth showing and nervous laughter escaping. The 51-year-old legend caught up on Curry’s nervousness quickly, the Warriors icon agreeing immediately.

 

 

Once Mickelson was off the camera, Curry clutched his chest, convinced that his heart did skip a beat.

Last year, Mickelson and Curry were a part of The Match: Champions for Change – both competing against each other. Mickelson teamed up retired NBA star Charles Barkley, and Curry was with Peyton Manning. Barkley and Mickelson beat Curry and Manning, even with Barkley’s handicap being 25.

 

 

Mickelson, who is 51, is the oldest golfer to have won a major championship. He won the PGA Championship this year and is a six-time major winner. Curry, on the other hand, often plays golf for charity and also as a hobby. Curry is currently in the NBA offseason, waiting for his return to the court. For Mickelson, while the PGA Tour season has wrapped up, he is the assistant captain for the upcoming Ryder Cup.

“My physical therapy has been keeping me busy…

Published

on

In February the golfing world stopped and held it’s breath after news began to filter through that Woods was involved in car crash.

Woods, a 15-time major champion, was driving close to double the 45mph speed limit when he crashed, the Los Angeles County’s sheriff has said.

The 45-year-old’s car left the road at approximately 84-87mph and flipped several times. Woods then had to be “extricated” from his Genesis GV80, a luxury SUV.

There was no evidence that he had been impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, with sheriff Alex Villanueva saying the primary reason for the traffic collision was driving at an unsafe speed.

Woods’ car came to rest several hundred feet away from where he entered the dusty area, hitting a tree in the process and rolling several times.

It was estimated that the estimated speed of the first impact on Woods’ car was 87mph, while when it hit the tree he is said to have been travelling at 75mph.

There were no witnesses to the incident.

Woods then underwent a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle. Dr. Anish Mahajan said Woods suffered “significant orthopedic injuries”.

He suffered “commuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibule bones in the leg”.

A rod had to be inserted into the tibia, Dr Mahajan said in a statement.

Dr Mahajan added that screws and pins were also inserted in Woods’ foot and ankle.

It’s possible Woods suffered injuries we aren’t aware of that did not require immediate surgery.

What do we know about his recovery?

It’s going well, according to snippets we’ve heard here and there.

Steve Stricker claimed before the Ryder Cup Woods was in good spirits and said: “Things are moving in the right direction.”

Woods has posted pictures here and there but it still looks like he is in crutches.

He can place a little bit of weight on his right leg, however.

Woods texted the United States team to “step on their necks” as they cantered to a 19-9 Ryder Cup victory.

Most recently Woods posted images of him searching for old trophies.

Even the most optomistic doctor would suggest that after Woods’ crash it would take months for him to recover to play golf – let alone competitive golf.

Woods told GolfDigest’s Daniel Rapaport in May that his rehab was, “more painful than anything I have ever experienced”.

Clearly Woods was asked if he hoped to play golf again, but Woods declined to answer the question.

He did tell the publication: “My physical therapy has been keeping me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my No. 1 goal right now: walking on my own. Taking it one step at a time.”
