    San Diego's Phil Mickelson may have earned the trophy in the Phoenix Open over the weekend but golfer James Hahn earned "Best Celebration for a Putt."

    Hahn made a 19-foot putt for birdie on the par-3 16th hole, dropped his club and went full Gangnam Style to the approval of the crowd.

    The video, uploaded to YouTube by the PGA, was one worthy of attention on Super Bowl Sunday. See below.

    Back to the competition - Mickelson left the desert with the big trophy Sunday and a huge confidence boost after a season that got off to a shaky start on and off the course with middle-of-the-pack finishes at La Quinta and Torrey Pines and headline-making talk about tax increases.

    "It's an important one for me, because it's been a while since I won, been a while since I've been in contention," Mickelson said. "I was certainly nervous heading into today. I think the thing I'm most excited about was the way I was able to regain control of my thoughts after a few shots early on that I didn't care for."

    Mickelson had a putt for 59 in the first round of the Phoenix Open that caught the right edge of the cup, curled 180 degrees and stayed out.

    Three days later, he flirted with the PGA Tour's 72-hole scoring record.
