Phil Mickelson is one of the most decorated golfers in the sport, having played 100 Majors while winning five of them, yet he took advice from a young boy during the pro-am round of the Dell Technologies Championship last Thursday.


Mickelson is currently without a caddie after parting ways with long-time bag carrier Jim Mackay, and while his brother Tim is doing the job in the interim, his time may be cut short because of a young boy named Riley.

Mickelson was preparing to hit a 3-wood from the rough on the par 5 18th, when he suddenly decided to seek the advice from the youngster who was watching from beyond the ropes.

Riley’s answer was priceless.

Well played, young man. And it would appear that Mickelson did go for it with a 3-wood and liked the result.

“Riley,” he addressed the boy, “you can caddie for me anytime.”
