Surrounded by a huge gallery, Phil Mickelson tees off from the ninth hole at Pebble Beach.
Phil Mickelson is very serious about golf. "Lefty" gives a quiet "thanks" back to supportive fans and rarely smiles on the course.
He's also a very good golfer and for some reason, one of my favorite pros to shoot on the links.
I decided to follow him through nine holes today at Pebble Beach and get the absolute best photo from each. There are more than nine shots, because I liked many photos from the same hole.
