Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

I don't know Phil but I met his wife Amy at the Arnold Palmer Bay Hill Invitational. I had just come from the Golf Channel where I was interviewed. She was lovely. Genuinely interested. Looks you straight in the eyes when talking to you, remembers your name. Phil walked by a few times while we were talking during a few holes. Blushed like a schoolboy. Still in love...

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

I have no idea, but other tour players think he is. And that's why they call him FIGJAM.

I personally think he faked the injury at Oakmont for something to fall back on if he lost.....Interesting you bring that up...Heres a good article about what really goes on with Phil behind the scenes....

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

Definately a vague thread. "Fake" is a subjective term and is perceived by the presentation of the media, and unfortunately so. Since I don't know him, I can't say one way or another. What I can say with some certainty is that his golf game is not fake by any stretch.

1) that article is dated (old)
2) it is what, a fashion magazine or some such BS
3) Tiger's equipment was inferior (steel shafts, etc.) I guess telling the truth is terrible
4) beeper thing... who cares
5) If Phil is a little cocky... good, I like a little cockyness.
6) no way in hell injury was fake... I see no evidence of such an unsubstantiated claim...

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

Other players said, ‘How about helping the rest of us who aren’t as rich?’ ”

That quote speaks volumes. It's always the guys who don't have and who aren't blessed with the skills that bitch and moan about those that do. I see it in baseball, football, basketball and now, golf.

I thought golf would be immune from such nonsense since you are solely responsible for the results. It's not a teammate, an umpire or referee, a coach. Granted, the elements come into play and there are some unfortunate bounces.

To go off on Mickelson because he thinks he's good (newsflash, he is) and is loaded is just asinine and childish. I have yet to meet a professional athlete that did not have an aura and carry a presence. That comes with confidence and I think it's a good thing.

There is enough snuff on the Internet to fill a small planet.

I've never heard of MenStyle.com and assume there is probably a reason for that.

Go Phil!

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

He is a genuine country club silver spoon fake jerk. Oh and by the way the guy who said Nicklaus was fake I am buying what you are selling. He always seemed about as warm and genuine as Simon Cowell. I still think he is the best player ever but don't buy his warmth.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

I don't think that comments about his silverspoon country club status are very nice. So what if he is privileged..comments like that stink of sour grapes. I agree with previous commentors that it is only those who are inferior to him or have 'less' who criticise.

If you don't like his success, then get on the range and start beating some balls!

MenStyle.com is the website of GQ magazine, a massive selling magazine here in the UK, not sure about the US

This thread isn't about me. It is about opinions of what Phil Mickelson is really like. Guess you didn't get the memo.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

ok

According to the article many of the pros call him FIGJAM- F--- Im Good, Just Ask Me. If his success has made him unpopular then it is important that he has faith in himself because it seems like there are many who would want to stand in his way. It is common knowledge that Phil and TW do not get on too well, probably because he is TW s main rival. I prefer Phil to TW (don't call me a racist)....seems like more of a gentleman- i find TW a bit obnoxious, but perhaps it is important to be that way if you re are to reach the top of your tree and stay there for a prolonged period of time.

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

yes Phil Mickelson is fake.

He was created 25 years ago in a secret goverment cave deep in the Appalachian mountains. They wanted to create a "super-golfer" from the most sophisticated technology at the time. His armor is impenatrable steel and his core is liquid nitrogen. The only problem....they wired him backwards. So thats how we get the signature "lefty".

Re: Is Phil Mickelson fake?

What a laugh! The guy is nowhere near as fake as a lot of the posts in this thread. And I don't mean the intentionally amusing ones.

If he were reading this, he'd have tears running down his ...
