Phil Mickelson hasn't had a great showing at the BMW Championship at Medinah Course No. 3 and his weekend has apparently gotten worse.

The 49-year-old golfer says he might miss his tee time this morning due to a fire at his hotel.

Mickelson took to Twitter to announce the news.

"How’s this for crazy? My hotel was struck by lighting, I was on top floor, we were evacuated and the place is on fire(only thing of mine on fire this week.) I can’t get back into my room and may miss my tee time because I am without clubs and clothes," Mickelson wrote.

That doesn't sound good. Hopefully everyone is OK.

Mickelson, meanwhile, was scheduled to tee off at 11:52 a.m. E.T.

The final round of the BMW Championship will be airing on Golf Channel and NBC. Stay tuned for more updates on Mickelson and his approaching tee time.
