During Sunday's final round of the Wells Fargo Championship, CBS showed a slow motion analysis of what a hypothetical right-handed Phil Mickelson swing would look like. Tuesday at THE PLAYERS Championship, Mickelson showed us the real thing.

Mickelson played a practice round with fellow Butch Harmon students Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson. When the trio arrived at the famous island 17th green, they decided to each try a shot from the other side of the ball.

"I wasn't very successful in my attempts, but we had some fun flipping clubs around and trying to hit it the other way," Mickelson said.
