Golfer Phil Mickelson had a bad day as he went into the Farmers Insurance Open. In spite of making bogeys at the seventeenth and 18th holes at the Torrey Pines’ South Course on Friday, Phil Mickelson just made the cut. He shot seventy one in the rain to end at one under 143.
Phil had real trouble in keeping his hands dry in spite of donning gloves on both hands at the round’s end. He said that the cut was the last thing on his mind – he was attempting to make 1 or 2 birdies to get within striking distance.
After this week, Phil Mickelson will take part in Northern Trust Open, Waste Management Phoenix Open and AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Last weekend, Phil Mickelson was tied for thirty seventh spot in the Humana Challenge. Phil said that he would like to see whether he could get it turned around and get the things going again.
In spite of his current poor form, he remains one of the favourites for the US Open, with online betting firm Unibet making him their one to watch as he attempts to pick up another Major.
A few days ago, Phil’s statements about the tax laws raised few eyebrows, but soon after that he cleared his views in a statement. He said that he just loves what he does. He love and appreciate the golf as well as the people who surround this game. He is as motivated as he has ever been to work on his game, to compete and win golf events.
