Sometimes you’ve got to go for it.

That’s particularly true if you’re a golf star who is a big hitter. During this past weekend’s Dell Technologies Championship in Norton, Mass., Phil Mickelson was in the rough and contemplating whether he should go for the green or play up.

A young boy named Riley was nearby, so Mickelson asked for his advice.

Without missing a beat, the kid responded: “If I could hit my 3-wood 260, I would probably go for it.”

That’s classic.

Mickelson went for it and things worked out perfectly.

Take a look:

Riley also got some nice souvenirs:
