“I am such an idiot.” ~Phil Mickelson
I couldn’t agree more this time. That meltdown today was completely idiotic and COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. Why didn’t someone like Bones (Phil’s caddie) tell Phil to bunt a 3 iron down the fairway on 18? Better yet, why didn’t PHIL think of it?
I wonder what kind of long term effect this will have on Phil. Will he still win a bunch more majors? I wonder at this point… Combine Phil’s talent with Jim Furyk’s brain and you’ve got a U.S. Open championship instead of a tie for 2nd.
Credit to Geoff Ogilvy
Hat’s off to Geoff Ogilvy though. He played very well. He overcame the sanded divot on 18 and made a GREAT up-and-down which ended up winning the tournament for him.
And I really watched Ogilvy’s swing today. It’s very solid. He could win many more…
