On Saturday afternoon, the world's best golfers were back on the course for the Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades, California. Justin Thomas led a stacked field that included Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, among others.

After rains washed away many scores in the first round on Thursday afternoon, the golfers have been working to cram four rounds of golf into just three days. On Saturday, most of the golfers were back on the course to finish their second rounds and get started on Round 3.

Among those still on the course for their second round is Phil Mickelson. During his second round, Mickelson found himself in a precarious situation.

After hitting a solid shot, Mickelson's ball trickled some 70 yards away from the green after finding the cart path.

That left him with a difficult path to the green - but this is Phil Mickelson we're talking about.

He hit the ball over a grandstand and managed to find the green.

Check it out.

If that video wasn't impressive enough, here's a photo showing what Mickelson was looking at when he hit the ball.

The amateur golfer would have seriously injured a patron watching on from the grand stands.

Mickelson tapped in for a bogey to finish one-under through two days.
