Phil Mickelson, winner of five major golf titles during his stellar career, is spending some time in Maine this week, and he isn’t lying around relaxing.
Instead, the golfer who is nicknamed “Lefty” on Tuesday tweeted photos of himself atop Precipice Trail in Acadia National Park. Mickelson, whose weight has fluctuated over the years, has more recently commented on a diet and fitness regime that he has embarked upon. Mickelson looks lean and mean in his photos, and he seemed impressed by one of Acadia’s most popular trails.
“I hiked the Precipice Trail at Acadia National Forest [sic] and wanted to share that it is one of the coolest things I’ve done,” Mickelson tweeted. “Hard to explain the beauty and challenge of this amazing trail.”
