Mickelson's crazy backward shot

If you're a golfer, you've no doubt had those occasional downhill shots on the edge of a bunker that just killed your score. Phil Mickelson has a way around it: The backward shot. You turn around with your back to the pin and aim AWAY from the hole, making it an uphill shot. And you still make the ball head toward the hole. You gotta see it to believe it.
