Phil Mickelson Sends Tee Shot Into Bunker After Heckler Yells ‘Do It For The Saudi Family’ At LIV Golf Event

Phil Mickelson is facing a ton of criticism for playing in the Saudi-backed LIV golf event at Bedminster, and he’s apparently going to be confronted by hecklers all weekend long.

For the past week, families of 9/11 victims have been running ads slamming players for taking money from the Saudi Royal Family.

During his first tee shot on Friday, Mickelson was heckled by a fan who yelled, “do it for the Saudi family.”

Phil may have been bothered by the heckler as he stepped off the tee and proceeded to send his shot into the bunker.
