Tracy Phillips, PGA, Makes Unbelievable Up and Down on No. 7
The Harbor Shores parking lot is where you want to be at the end of your round, not the middle of it. But Tracy Phillips, PGA, found himself there on No. 7 during the third round of the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship with his ball mere yards away from the concrete. Despite a tough lie in the shrubs, Phillips swung through it all with a deft touch.
With the dirt following through impact, Phillips stared at his shot soaring high in the air. He had no visual of it landing softly in the rough, taking another bounce, then trickling down the fringe and settling to within five feet of the cup. He maneuvered his way up the hill to an appreciative crowd and one of the best shots of the Championship.
Like a true professional, Phillips left no doubt on his par putt. The left-to-right breaker went in the heart of the cup, keeping him at even par for his Saturday round.
