A year ago at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, Phil Mickelson played a shot from the cart path then artfully explained how he was able to hit it.

In Thursday's opening round of the European Tour's Scottish Open, he did it again, playing his second shot from the 13th hole at Royal Aberdeen off a cart path and making birdie (see video below).

Mickelson, who won last year's Scottish Open, shot 68.
