Keith Mitchell had the perfect reaction when announcers botched his name on the Honda Classic


Keith Mitchell was likely not a name most golf fans were too familiar with until his breakthrough victory at the Honda Classic. The 27-year-old hadn't won professionally at any level, and he hadn't competed in big events—even leading the local Palm Beach Post to rip on Mitchell's win, calling him a "no-name champion". Pretty brutal.

Turns out, even the TV broadcast wasn't as familiar with the rising star's name before Sunday's victory. As Mitchell finished up his third round as one of the 36-hole leaders alongside Sungjae Im, NBC's Dan Hicks got Mitchell's name wrong—perhaps just a slip of the tongue—which happens to the best of announcers. Obviously, Hicks is one of the best broadcasters in golf. Even he botched Mitchell's name on Saturday—and the newly minted PGA Tour winner had the perfect reaction to the mistake.


"You can call me Kevin all you want. Just make the check out to Keith"
