Golf GIF Roundup: July 15th

Matteo Manassero's creepy eyes.

Matteo Manassero’s creepy eyes.

What a week for the PGA and European Tours, as both events end up going to playoffs with great finishes. Phil Mickelson was able to triumph in Scotland over Branden Grace at Castle Stuart, while 19-year old Jordan Spieth became the first teenager since 1931 to win on the PGA Tour, outlasting David Hearn and Zach Johnson in a five-hole playoff at the John Deere Classic. This is the best of the week in the Golf GIF Roundup for July 15th.
