Poor Phil Mickelson

the guy can't catch a break. he's still trying to recover from his van de velde-ian collapse at the us open and now his idiot coach is calling tiger out.
"When Phil's at his best, I'm thinking nobody can beat him," Pelz told the Chicago Tribune in an article on Tuesday that stirred comment at Medinah Country Club, site of this week's PGA Championship.

"If Phil's long swing is good, his short game, I believe, is the best in the world. He doesn't have a serious weakness inside 150 yards.

"I'm not saying Tiger's short game is bad. He has a great short game. But I think Phil putts more consistently than Tiger does. He has more imagination and a few more shots around the green."
dude. what is wrong with you? have you learned nothing from watching tiger rewrite golf history during his first 10 years on tour? don't you know tiger will use this as motivation to play even better than he has? what possible good is going to come of this for your man?

sheesh. i don't even like mickelson and i'm starting to feel sorry for the guy. not only is he an idiot, he's surrounded himself with idiots too.

What can you say about Mickelson?

Here's a guy who hates old people and dogs (Tin Cup), and spends time with his wife and "adorable" daughters only when televised and not impinging on his table time in Vegas.

He's a helluva player, but he's also potentially the biggest phoney who has ever lived.

The thing I like best about him is that he gives me someone to root against when watching golf.

For the record, I concede that he may have more golfing talent than Tiger, but he will never measure up where it counts between the ears and in the heart.

everything you say is true, ben, but interestingly, phil's phoneyness isn't the biggest factor in why i don't like mickelson. i don't like him because he's an incredible coward. he's afraid to put himself on the line and play to win. he hides behind his statement that he only knows how to play "all out" or "aggressively". he's afraid of putting out max effort and losing.

i can't respect someone who would rather purposely lose than put it all on the line and try to win. phil's afraid to put his psyche at risk, and that is the single biggest difference between tiger and everyone else on the tour. tiger's willingness to put his entire being, his own self worth on the line with every shot is staggering.

i agree with your opinion that phil has more natural talent than tiger, and it's his head and heart that separates him from everyone else.
