VIDEO: Hunter Mahan Gets Emotional At Press Conference, Phil Mickelson Saves The Day

You likely know the situation that played out on the final day of the Ryder Cup on Monday. But the brief summary: The entire tournament came down to Hunter Mahan winning his singles match, which he was unable to do. The Americans' loss can hardly be blamed on Mahan, of course, but it's certainly easy to understand why he wouldn't take it so well. Fair or not, the reality is that the Ryder Cup did come down to his match.

Nice save by Phil Mickelson there before things got too weepy. Although with three losses and one win in the tournament, it's a shame he couldn't have been there to save his teammates on the course, amiright?! (SICK GOLF BURN)
