VIDEO: Phil Mickelson Sinks Huge Putt, Fan Rolls Down Hill

Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley each needed a birdie on the 72nd hole to force a playoff at the Northern Trust Open, setting up quite the dramatic scene to end the tournament. Bill Haas was already in the clubhouse at 7-under, one shot ahead of Bradley and Mickelson, who were playing in the final group of the day. That's the scene-setter, but what happened on the green was both amazing and hilarious.

Mickelson had a near-impossible putt after leaving his approach left and almost off the green. It was just over 26 feet from the hole, and with a significant break to adjust for. Of course he made it.

But the best part of it all was the reaction. Keep a close eye on the hill behind Mickelson as his putt rolls in. Watch the grown men rolling down the hill like little kids.

Bradley also made his putt forcing a three-man playoff. Sadly, nobody rolled down the hill after that putt.
