If I had Mickelfat's wife I'd be spending a few days in bed, but I sure wouldn't be sleeping much. :p

Phil calls himself an idiot and maybe his 2nd shot qualifies, but think about this with his drive. I know in my game (and I'm not even close to a PGA level, let alone a single digit handicap!), I can shank a 4 Iron as easily as a driver. The announcers kept saying "Just hit a 4 Iron", and that drove me crazy. Phil wanted to get down the fairway and his driver normally does not let him down. Phils day will come, just like it did in the Masters. I hope he can get his slam, but the British Open does give him fits, with his best finish 3rd in 2004.

Exactly who did Phil "confirm" this to?

Poor Phil. He's still my favorite golfer!

Live by the sword, die by the sword...

I see, thanks. You should have attributed that in your original blog.

Sorry. I thought the Sun Times version was a good link.

Are we watching the same Mickelson? This is PHIL Mickelson, right? You've got to be kidding when you say his driver normally doesn't let him down; he hadn't hit a fairway all day! Moreover, driving accuracy has always been his Achilles heel.

Secondly, it's ridiculous to apply the limitations of your recreational game to the pros. They can hit fairways with a four iron at least 95% of the time.

The announcers were hoping that Mickelson would hit a 4-wood. And I agree with Judge Smails regarding the accuracy of the pros' long irons.

Mickelson's ability to hit a 4-iron center-fairway is similar to my consistency with an 8-iron.
