Phil Mickelson joins line of wimpy whines at U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2
Phil Mickelson is always good for a choke at a major, but now America’s lovable runner up is revealing himself to be just another pampered athlete who’s going to kick, scream and hold his breath when he doesn’t get his way. Was that Phil or Vijay Singh whining after the first round of the U.S. Open?
Say it ain’t so. For when Phil’s joining the chorus carping about the big mean USGA’s course conditions, you know all is lost. Mickelson is usually the happy-go-lucky, no-complaint golfer. It’s part of why he’s so loved. Yet there he was echoing … Vijay.
“It played right on the edge today,” Mickelson told reporters in his press conference. “And if it gets any harder, which I’m sure it will, and any tougher as the week wears on, it’s going to be almost impossible to shoot a round under par.”
Almost impossible? Please. These guys almost make you take the side of
the exclusive country club set at the USGA. And that’s no easy task.
Could we just play a golf tournament? One tournament a year tries to keep things around par and these guys just can’t stand it. Get over it and hit your shots.
