Spotted: Phil Mickelson With A Long Putter

Golf’s favorite equipment nut has decided to jump on the long putter bandwagon. Phil Mickelson has been known to show up to the Master’s with two drivers or adding a 2 iron like he did at this years U.S. Open, a club he hadn’t had in his bag for over 6 years. But a long putter? I’m not sure I ever thought I would see the day. But sure enough he showed up to the Deutsche Bank Championship pro-am with an unusually long putter. Mickelson pulled out a Odyssey Sabertooth White Hot XG long putter quoting “I thought I’d give it a try”.  This 45.5″ (70° lie) putter is his latest experiment. Known for his short game techniques is this too risky to through into the bag? No word yet on if he liked it and will keep it in the bag for the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Recently the long putter showed up in the winners bag for it’s 1st major championship win this year at the PGA Champion by Keegan Bradley. For 3 consecutive weeks it was found in the winners bag including Adam Scott, and Webb Simpson.

One thing is for certain if Phil does show up with this in his bag tomorrow and wins there might actually be a spike in long putter sales.

    It will be interesting to see how Phil goes with the longer putter. There’s no doubt the rest of his game is solid enough so if he starts making a few putts anything could happen.
