Phil Mickelson has failed to make headlines for the right reasons in recent months as he has struggled to challenge for golf's top honours, but now he has become a social media hit for very different reasons.

For some reason, Mickelson has agreed to take part in a video to promote Mizzen+Main clothing company while he performs what can best be described as the kind of dance routine you might expect to see from an elderly relative at a wedding.

Displaying an unsurprisingly awkward smile, the five-time major winner proceeds to dodge imaginary golf balls as he dances to what could be an 1980s disco track, looking more than a little like actor Hugh Grant at times as he bumbles through his routine.

We can only hope Mickelson is getting well paid for this performance as he might take some time to live it down:
