Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

I don't believe he is. At the U.S. Open a few years ago, I was asking golfers to autograph pencil drawings that I had sketched. Most everyone would grab the drawing and sign,then hand it to a marshall or sometimes me. Phil was only 1 of 3 golfers who actually noticed that I had sketched the picture of him. He complimented me and talked with me for a few minutes. So I don't think he's fake.

By the way, the drawings I did are for my kids someday when I'm gone.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

Not a fake golfer, but that sure was a fake wrist injury. Brilliant move really. Moved all the focus at Oakmont from the big choke at Wing Foot to poor Phil's wrist. Wie's got to be going nuts. Nobody believed her injury for a second, yet nobody, I mean nobody, questioned Phil's and he had much more motivation to lie.

Yes my father did play with me he just didnt wait until 40 camaras were pointed at us to do it....Phils got you fooled too huh...Awww shucks that Phil is a great ol dad aint he...YUCK!...Tiger would never do something as lame as that..What next? He brings kites to the golf course and cast off at the 18th with little curly lockes?

Ive always thought it was lame for sports stars to parade their kids out in front of world...Whether it be Phil Mickelson or Allan Iverson..Its just kinda lame.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

I caught a bit of a news report on the Stern Show today on Sirius - I only caught the back end of it twice, but they were mentioning a possible Sports Illustrated story about Mickelson having a kid with an Atlanta-area stripper - I only caught the tail end (no pun intended) of the story - anyone have any idea?

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

i heard the same story from robins news. i was wondering the same thing. i searched a little bit and it seemed like this was leaked back in 04 or 05, its just that his agent or some sponsor shut the other party up. this could be interesting.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

Thanks, Lemay. Glad I wasn't hearing things.

I think it would be hysterical if there was some 6 year-old half-Mickelson/half-Puerto Rican stripper running around in Atlanta. Maybe she can run out on the green the next time he wins in Hartford with all of his Cleaver-esque daughters.

Phil comes off as a douche a couple of times each year - so if he has some illegitimate kid with some southern, minority stripper - I would love to see how that plays out.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

Absolutely NOT. Phil is the victim of the group "go along to get along" mentality that pervades the PGA, similar to what one may see in forums such as this. Because Phil behaves differently than many of Tim Finchem's minions on the PGA, he is unfairly labeled. These Group4Lifers will think nothing of tarnishing Phils REPutation because it gives them a feeling of POWER.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

Supposedly he has a real big gambling problem that the TOUR is always trying to keep quiet and under wraps, and a bit of a drinking problem.

I still like the guy though... he has personality and realizes that he is there to provide entertainment to people (leading him to actually acknowledge fans and appreciate them, something the world's current no. 1 doesn't realize or do). I also love the fact that he always allows his wife and children to meet him on the 18th green and gives them all hugs and kisses when he finishes. (Again, Tiger rarely acknowledges that Elin even exists until after he signs his scorecard and even sometimes ignores her until after he hoists the trophy and gives his photo ops.)

Anyway, I guess every good person is going to have faults, and everyone is going to try and minimize those faults (why would they publicize them?)... we are all human after all...

If you do a little digging you'll see it's been discussed by a lot of people. I won't name my sources because I don't want to blow their cover, but I will say this: I deeply trust my sources and THEY have talked about Phil's gambling issues. It's also well known that Phil is a sports nut and generally knows the line on any major game, all the NFL teams, etc... and likes to bet on them.

I haven't heard much lately, so he may be "better" now. But the general understanding is that the Callaway contract helped to pay off some gambling debts he'd accrued.

I've also heard about Phil's (and Amy's) somewhat wild "swinger" lifestyle, but not from the same people as I trust about the gambling. So I don't put much stock in those comments.

But the gambling? As far as I'm concerned there's a lot of truth there.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

I would also like to keep my source quiet so as not to put in jeopardy his top-level position at one of the sponsor corporations for a couple of TOUR stops. This person does not work directly with the TOUR, but does work directly with those that do. He is a source in whom I have a high level of confidence and whom I have known practically my whole life.

As far as the swinging goes I haven't heard anything of that from this source, but I will be sure to inquire the next time our families get together.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

Wow, sounds like Callaway needs to open a "Life Counselling" division. JD now Phil!

BTW, my wife heard Phil's interview after the President's cup and just looked at me and said "He just said the same thing 4 times in a row" She definitely would vote him as being fake.

People were talking in this thread about how he's done nice things and I don't disagree with that view, but the question is "Is Phil fake?" I would say undoubtedly Phil is fake. His niceness is part of his fakeness. and if Kanye was finishing that line he might add "We should be honored by his fakeness"
