One of the nicest guys on tour Phil Mickelson has admitted that this season has seen some of the worst golf he has ever played in his long and illustrious career but has said it’s proved to be a blessing in disguise.
Mickelson who has won four majors and countless tournaments started the season in fine form winning at Pebble Beach in February which we all thought would set him up for a great season. But come summer his form deserted him and a below average performance at the US open was followed by missed cuts in the Greenbrier and at the Open Championship which is one of his favourite events.
The big smiling yank acknowledged his loss of form and decided to go back to the drawing board and he feels he is reaping the benefits of working on every part of his game.
A decent performance in the Ryder Cup and coming so close last week has proven that all the hard work is paying off. Good on ya Phil, you’re a great golfer and a really nice bloke too! You deserve every success.
