Phil Mickelson Almost Missed His Tee Time Because His Hotel Caught on Fire

He announced on Twitter that his hotel in IL was stuck by lightning and caught fire, forcing the guests at the hotel, including Mickelson, to evacuate.

Fortunately for Mickelson, Eaglewood is just a mile and a half away from the Medinah Country Club, so it was a quick drive over once he had everything. He headed to the range to warm up, pausing only to answer the phone when his wife called to check on him.
