Listening to Michael Breed this morning, he brought up a question for his listeners to chime in on and I thought it was an interesting question. So with apologies to Micheal for stealing his idea, let's hear your thoughts. So answer the poll above, and leave your reasons below. The topic was centered around Phil Mickelson, whether he'll play the US Senior Open this year---My Goodness, is he really 50?---or play the Travelers Championship being held the same week. Pros for the US Senior Open-It would be his first major as a Senior, it's at Newport Country Club--and if he won in some small way it would be a consolation prize for not winning a US Open. No, it wouldn't give him the Career Grand Slam. Pros for the Travelers-Annually one of the best tournaments of the year for the players, their families and caddies, in the way they are treated. Usually a strong field, and more importantly a win or good finish would help his point total toward the Ryder Cup.

A buddy of mine is a former PGA Tour Caddie and current Sport Writer. He and some other caddies started this site that has a lot of great content. The Caddie Network, a lot of inside info from caddies that you may find interesting. Here's one piece that I thought was particularly interesting. https://www.thecaddienetwork.com/what-was-even-par-worth-on-the-pga-tour-in-the-2017-18-regular-season-for-player-and-caddie/ This is a fun read, that if a player shot even par on the tournaments he was qualified to enter for a full season, where do you think he'd finish on the money list. It'd be interesting to see everyone post their guess before reading the article.
