Go Lefty!

It's embarrassing to admit but I'm a big fan of Mickelson. But it seems that every time he is on the verge of breaking through with a huge win, he finds a way to blow it. Maybe that's why I root for him - unlike Tiger, with Phil it's never a foregone conclusion. More exciting that way, I guess....

There is no spoon.

To me Phil seems like he just left his day job, driving a bread truck or something, and showed up in the tournament. That he is an everyday joe who is also a really good golfer. I love rooting for him. He does have an uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. It was very disheartening that when Tiger fell, Phil's health took a turn, but any guy who will put on his new Masters Jacket and go to the Krispy Kreme with his daughters is just cool. And then when asked about it he said, he had promised the girls he would take them and "it was a little cool out so I grabbed an old jacket.":D That was as funny as wearing the jacket to Krispy Kreme in the first place.

 

Then he put on the jacket and watched Arnold, Jack, and Gary tee of to open the tournament. How can you not cheer for him?

What a great story! And very cool that he made it that early to see the great tee it up. Someday it'll be him and Tiger...

 

And maybe Bubba Watson. Never saw a shot like that before. Wow! Just, WOW! A very deserving champ!

I have no idea why Bones didn't try harder to convince him to walk back to the tee. Trying to punch that ball out of the bamboo with a toe down wedge was just stupid. Then again, we've done it too and maybe that's why Phil is so endearing. B)
