Although Phil Mickelson was far behind the leader at the British Open, he shot his best round to put him at -7 for the tournament. While he won’t win with that score, he certainly had today’s most interesting shot. On the drive on hole 17, Mickelson hooked the ball onto a hotel balcony just next to the course.

The shot, which cost him a one-stroke penalty, impressively landed on the balcony and came to a stop without rolling off. He ultimately ended up triple-bogeying the hole, as he struggled all tournament on hole 17.
