I think Phil has earned the right to pick and choose his tournaments!!!!! These guys aren't robots and can't play then all and expect there game to be top notch. Phil has a lot of responsibilites on and off the course and besides he's won it at least twice before.

Phil is a pansy---as I watch on the 17th I pray that Perez does not win. This is a very important charity event. I hope someday that Phil realizes his actions have consequences. He was my hero---now I think he is a bum. The desert needs the Hope. Someday, Phil will refuse to play at Torre Pines because the wind and weather is tooooo dificult. Let's let the pros show they can play the way everyday golfers do---and that wind is a part of the game. Good Luck Phil---This will be your worst year. JJ

JJ,
I guess you don't really follow golf too closely. Phil is the 2nd winnest active player on tour Mickelson is known for his swashbuckling play ala Palmer. Far from a pansy. Get real will ya. The Hope is a birdie fest. At 38 yrs old Phil is doing the lessers a favor by not playing in it.

It is my understanding all PGA tournaments support worthy charities. Why bash Phil on this one? He played 2000, 2002 thru 2007 (six straight years) missing only 2001, 2008 & 2009. What top 10 player has more appearances? Phil: Seven out of 10 years; Tiger: 0 of 10. Is the tournament below Tiger? I hope Arnold can pull this together with a full year to work with until next January. He's top notch. I guess there are many concepts as to what a "fan" is. JK

The Hope's deal with nearly bankrupt Chrysler expires next year. It will not be renewed. If that means the end of the Hope, the people who run this tournament have no one to blame but themselves.
The security personnel at this event, both private and taxpayer funded cops, get nastier and more belligerent every year. Despite the fact that Tiger Woods draws more fans to the Buick at the WEDNESDAY PRO-AM than the Hope draws on Saturday or Sunday, the security at the Hope will get in your face if you dare to approach some no-name like Dan Quayle for an autograph.
They need to go down to the Buick and see how San Diego PD manages to keep control of massive crowds following Tiger and Phil without being confrontational or rude.
In this economy the Hope needs every warm body it can to show up, but instead it drives them away with increasingly weak celebrity/pro fields and increasingly aggressive behavior from its overpaid rent-a-cops.
