Phil Mickelson is a 5-time Major winner and a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. And that's just for what he does when he keeps his ball in the same time zone as the golf course he's playing.
Actually, he's a lot more fun when he's trying to get his ball back into the vicinity from whence he started.
