Phil Mickelson had a mostly-forgettable final round at the BMW Championship on Sunday afternoon, shooting a one-under 71 to finish at -5 in a tie for 48th.

The lead-up to Mickelson's final round was anything but forgettable, though.

Mickelson nearly missed his Sunday morning tee time after the hotel he was staying in got struck by lightning and caught fire.

"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," he tweeted.

Thankfully, everything ended up being OK, as Mickelson made his final round in time. Mickelson's sister had a perfect response to his tweet, though. "Bro-you can’t tweet this stuff until AFTER you call Mom to tell her you’re ok. Just spoke with her. her. She would like 'a word,'" Tina Mickelson wrote.

Well said, Tina.

And call your mom, Phil.
