Lefty's a bum
I don’t understand all this hullabaloo about Phil Mickelson. The guy’s won one major and blown several others. Can we all say it just once: Lefty’s a choker. There, doesn’t that feel better?
I mean, the guy’s a great golfer and a friendly sort, but come on: ONE major? He’s hardly a champion for the ages. Look at what he’s done in the Ryder Cup. He’s a loser.
Ernie Els has had his share of chokes, too. Even though Tiger Woods is a shadow of his former self, he at least lives up to the moment when it’s all on the line, for the most part. I like guys who rise to the occasion, not back down from the pressure. Talent ain’t everything.

Do you ever notice that the Guys that have been there, never criticize. The greats like Nicklaus, Watson, Player, Palmer, all openly admit that anyone (including themselves) can choke at any time. Did any of them openly criticize Norman when he choked at the Masters? No, because they know that it can happen to all. It is part of the game and we are all human. How many second places did Jack have? How many seconds for Sam Snead? It is part of the game.
Please Mr. McDonald, no "shock" journalism in golf. Lefty, the game, and those who participate in it deserve and want more. Criticism when due, and accolades when due. Lefty...you've earned this accolade!
