Professional golfer Phil Mikelson's science project

Professional golfer Phil Mickelson credits much of his success in golf to math and science, as air temperature, force and velocity all have an impact on his game.

When he's off the golf course, Mikelson works as an advocate for education.

Phil and his wife have partnered with Exxon Mobil to create the Mickelson Exxon Mobil Teachers Academy, a week-long professional development program for teachers designed to inspire students in math and science.

Today on American Morning, Mikelson discusses the academy and his performance in last weekend's British Open. He is joined by Nicole Martin, an elementary science specialist for the Alabama Math, Science and Technology Initiative, who conducts an exciting egg drop experiment for Kiran Chetry and Ali Velshi.
