As Mickelson was in his backswing, a leaf fell right into his putting line. You can see it above -- top left, the green is as smooth as a pool table; top right, an instant later, there's that darn leaf. In a billion-to-one shot, the leaf fell right into the line of Mickelson's rolling ball. The leaf knocked the ball just the tiniest bit left, but, as you can see in the bottom right shot, it was more than enough. Mickelson walked away from No. 2 with a par ... and some bitter regret for what could have been. We'll have to see if that affects Phil down the line.
The sudden leaf left even Masters veterans shaking their heads in disbelief. "I've never seen that before," legendary golf writer Dan Jenkins wrote on Twitter, "but this is only my 60th Masters."
On a larger level, the Masters is one of the greatest sporting events in the world, and there's no denying the mental tenacity and physical grace of these guys. But when a tiny little leaf can totally disrupt you, well ... let's just say the whole "golf is a sport" argument just took a huge hit.
