Cape Town - Let's be honest, it's not quite The Matrix, but American golfing great Phil Mickelson does have some moves.

He can even do the worm!

Mickelson has shown off his dance moves in a new TV ad for a menswear company.

One of the world's most recognisable golfers, Mickelson dances to Ghostland Observatory's song Vibrate as he dodges golf balls - in almost Matrix style - before hitting the deck to show off his worm.

Mickelson told ESPN his wife Amy found the add hilarious because finally, the entire world would get to see the famous Mickelson worm that only close friends had witnessed before the menswear add aired on TV.

"I don't take myself too seriously. When I realised that I would be dancing to Ghostland Observatory, which I had to Google, Amy couldn't help cracking up because, well, she's been subjected to my dancing for years.

"It took me a while to get comfortable with the idea of dancing on what would be on national television, but once I did, it was so much fun to shoot," Mickelson told ESPN.

Mickelson, 48, who began wearing the long-sleeved shirts made by Mizzen+Main at the Players Championship in May, signed an endorsement deal with the company.

Mickelson is currently competing at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone in Akron, Ohio where he fired an opening round of 4-under par 66.

Mickelson is attempting to play his way onto the US Ryder Cup team which will be named after next week's PGA Championship in what will be his 12th appearance.
