Maybe, maybe not.
A dog finding a Phil Mickelson club in the rough?
Totally possible because Mickelson spent enough time in the tall stuff during the Ryder Cup matches in France two weeks ago.
What we do know is that Mickelson has developed an allergy when it comes to rough, the thick variety. Why else would he make the stupid declaration that came out of his pie-hole last week out in Napa?
Here’s what “Teflon Phil” had to say:
“I’m 48. I’m not going to play tournaments with rough like that anymore. It’s a waste of my time. I’m going to play courses that are playable and that I can play aggressive, attacking, make a lot of birdies, — the style of golf I like to play.”
Seriously? No more rough for Phil?
Once again we have to send Lefty straight to the Dog House. In fact, we’re going to have to build an addition to the Dog Palace because Mickelson spends so much time there.
Why “Teflon Phil” you ask?
They used to call John Gotti “The Teflon Don” mainly because law enforcement couldn’t make any charges stick to him.
With Mickelson, he’s the guy who gets away with everything.
Violations of tour policies see the powers to be turn their heads the other way — ill-gotten gains from insider trading tips, association with known gamblers, bookmakers and felons, huge sums of money owed to said felons, etc.
No, it seems Mickelson is untouchable in the eyes of the tour.
