Phil Mickelson needs directions to the 1st tee

Streeter Lecka

Phil Mickelson is set to tee off at the PGA Championship, but he needed some help getting to the first tee.

Phil Mickelson is one of the favorites to win the PGA Championship and he may indeed pull it off ... assuming he can find the first tee.

He was set to begin his first round on Thursday, the only problem is he didn't know how to get to the first tee after leaving the practice area. He ended up asking one of the tournament workers, who pointed him in the right direction.

This, just a day after he nearly forgot to register for the tournament. Fresh off his win at the British Open, Mickelson appears as relaxed as he's ever been. He's been spotted wearing flip flops around Oak Hill while carrying the Claret Jug in a backpack.

We can confirm the directions worked as Mickelson teed off and began his round.
