Augusta - Phil Mickelson's superb short game has often got him out of trouble and saved par at the Masters, but unfortunately it doesn't always work.

Mickelson paid out a $1 bet with a spectator at Augusta National on Tuesday after failing on an up-and-down bid at the sixth hole in a practice round.

"He was mouthing off about hard shot, get this up-and-down, no chance, blah, blah, blah and it wasn't that hard a shot and I should have gotten it up-and-down," Mickelson said.

"I did hit a good shot. I had a 7-footer straight uphill and I missed it and I had to pay him. That's what happens when you lose. I had to get a five from a caddie. I don't (carry small bills)."

Don't feel too sorry for him. Mickelson and Rickie Fowler won money off Jason Dufner and Dustin Johnson in practice.
