Phil Mickelson has arguably made one of the worst ads ever seen

Hmmm.

PHIL MICKELSON ISN’T done turning heads with the help of his latest sponsor, Mizzen+Main.

The brand, which sells performance dress shirts, has been a staple of Mickelson’s look during the 2018 season, with the five-time Major winner often sporting the button-ups alongside his opponent’s noticeably more athletic-looking attire.

Now, Mickelson has taken that commitment to a new level, appearing in Mizzen+Main’s first ever TV ad, showing off his dad dance moves while dodging golf balls shot in his direction.

Buzz started when Mickelson debut the shirt while playing a practice round with Tiger Woods ahead of the Masters. Since then, Mickelson has been light-hearted about embracing his role as the brand’s spokesman.

“I think nobody does kind of slightly overweight middle-aged guy better than me, and this says exactly who I am,” said Mickelson.

“It says that if you can play golf at the highest level, imagine how comfortable it is in the office.”

It’s no surprise that Mickelson would so fully embrace the new brand — his deal with the company reportedly included an undisclosed ownership stake.

Mickelson also has sponsorship deals with KPMG, Callaway, Workday, Rolex, and more, but don’t expect to see him dancing in their commercials any time soon.
