Re Race to Dubai/Phil Mickelson - you're such cynics (but I bet you're right).

By the way, he comes across as such a phony to me, always smiling, but I keep reading and hearing comments that he's incredible with the crowds at tournaments.

Hi Wendy,

I found that using Mickelson's "phony" smile when things are going wrong at the course always seems to make me feel better. Perhaps it's because I picture Phil like that and it changes my attitude. :-)

I'm actually glad that Phil has decided to stick with the PGA Tour this year. He's a real crowd pleaser. I remember standing within a few feet of him at the Barclays a few years back and he did not disappoint!

Last time I take a cue from YOU. We hadn't reached the third tee yesterday before my husband threatened to wrap a 3-iron round my neck unless I took that "inane grin" off my face. He had just 3-putted the last green, however.

I must confess it was really disappointing to see Phil Mickelson completely disappear into the crowd during the final round of the Barclays Singapore Open. It is one thing to see young unheralded Thai star Chapchai Nirat to fade away on the final day in a star studded field but it was just the right setting for one the present generations golfing greats to make his move up the leaderboard and vie for a shot at the title. But his performance definitely was a huge letdown. He has been on a downward spiral for a while now and if he doesn’t watch his slip I will not be surprised if many more of the young golfers could possibly come through and topple Phil from the place where he is right now on the rankings list.

And I really think all the talk about Phil and Tiger is really over the top. If anything the golfing pundits worldwide must think of some other worthy contender to give tiger a run for his money and there are quite a few of them out there. So I really don’t think that writers worldwide need to be wasting reams on a possibly delicious Mickelson-Woods battle in the Olympics. To be honest it doesn’t even sound remotely exciting now.

Cheers

I think Phil may need to go back to the drawing board... I think his presence on the Tour is slowly evaporating...
