Video: U.S. Open Fans Cheer on This Adorable Groundhog, Phil Mickelson Exiting a Bathroom

Jun 15, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT


Golf crowds  — other than the Birdman and the omnipresent “Get in the Hole!” guy — get a bad rap for being uptight and reserved.

But in reality, it’s a pack of dehydrated thousands standing in the sun all day and drinking beer. These people will cheer for anything.

And what better to cheer for than the fat, fuzzy groundhog that temporarily halted Phil Mickelson’s round on Friday?

I want to take him home and care for him as my own.


Today’s Phil Mickelson update: he got a standing ovation when he came out of the porta potty after teeing off on 11. #usopen #Merion

    Loved that little guy.

    See this is the difference between you and CrossingBeeyotches: You talk about crowd and Phil’s reactions and pertinent stuff. Kyle-the-doooosh would’ve written about the time his dog mauled a ground hog. I’m not going back to that crappy site, i already deleted it from my favorites. 700level forever baby!!!!
