« Phil Mickelson deserves all the credit for PGA Championship at Baltusrol, all you Lefty doubters stink!Only golf cannot get its major events covered in a major TV way: PGA Championship at Baltusrol just the latest joke »

"Because if you do think about, this really could be Mickelson last, best chance to win another major."

Why? Seriously. Why, if I "think about it", will this be his last, best chance? You got anything? Or just blanket statements of lameness.

Matt. Mickelson's 35 and he's never been the most dedicated golfer in conditioning. It's no stretch to say his window could be closing.

And that's completely ignoring the nerves angle. Nerves tend to get worse as you get older, not better.

He had a three-shot lead heading into the weekend of a major, he's still tied for the lead heading into Sunday. Plus, Tiger Woods, the great who freaks Mickelson out, is still far enough back at even par that if Mickelson shoots even a two under Sunday, Tiger's out of it. All this is unlikely to come together in perfect sequence for Phil ever again.

Yes, this could be Phil Mickelson's last, best chance to win a major.

He'd be wise to recognize that. Think about it.

Phil Mickelson is much better than you guys give him credit for. Not only will he win this PGA Championship, he will win another couple of majors over the next few years!

You can use the argument that Tiger is a long way back, so this is a great chance for them all who are within striking distance.
.... there probably will be some majors Tiger will simply walk away with in the next couple of years. So it is a great chance for everyone in contention to strike now.

I do think Phil will contend for more majors though, whether he wins this or not.

Gee, Chris, you're talking as if Mickelson and Love were hitting 80's, and no one else bothered to show up.
Which is rather obviously not so....

If your favorite player isn't shooting as well as someone else, whine that he isn't -
Don't slam the ones who actually are playing well.
You were a huge whiner during the US Open in Pinehurst too, when a cool guy from New Zealand beat Tiger, who you pimp like Simon Cowell for Carrie Underwood.

Phil Mickelson and Davis Love III are underachievers? Man, you are lame! If you want to garner any more attention with your blogging, you should go back and write more about Wie, or you are finished.

Hey, Chris. About your prediction how Phil Mickelson would fail to win, did you buy your power ball tickets?

D'oh! So much for that prediction...

And BTW, Mickelson might look out of shape to someone who's never spent time with him, but tee it up with the guy and you'll see a hell of a lot of power. Similar body type to Vijay, actually, and how many majors has HE won in the years after his 35th B-day?

Humble pie time for Chris.

WOW, nerves of STEEL.

He needed a birdie at the last and he got it. That doesn't sound like a choker now does it.

Great play. Well done Phil.

Chris..I you love! I can't think of anyone else who is so superficial and simple minded that I feel truly superior concerning golf....excceeded only perhaps by the commentators I've read preceding who can't seem to carry anything away from this "Championship" except telling us what we already know. All of this "rooting" is depressing. Bjorn was incredibly unluckly...and at the least should have been in a playoff with our woman and little girl dominated Champion.
In any case...is it possible this was a joke of a venue? 40 years past its prime and looking like something from a computer generated game? I await the first 700 yd par 5 and a "course" made up entirely of 500 yd + par 4s and 6 yard wide fairways......
