Phil Mickelson Master Catch-All Thread

41 posts in this topic

Pfff, why should Tiger be the only one with his own thread around here?

This one's for all things Phil (I mean Fil).

Crap, am I banned now from my own thread?

Here is a point of interest. Every year we ( our local watering hole) has a $25.00 to enter our masters pool. It's been going on since 2000. The rules are simple, you pick 2 Americans, 2 euros and 2 non euro-american world player so. The tie breakers is who submitted there paid in full entry first. Most that enter are members of 3 clubs in the immediate area. Because of the popularity each club has also donated a membership and the winner with all the cash, usually donates it an open bar session at the club. During the US Open final. So you pick - total of 6 players with the object of total money won at the conclusion of the masters ( not what place they came. In but money won ) With about 45 entries already in and another due in, none of the entries have PHIL or TIGER and only 1 have RORY. Right now the overwhelming pick by many is Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth Perhaps a sign of the times, no Tiger, no Phil for the sports largest stage.

Given the injuries I can see why Phil and Tiger aren't getting picked but a bit shocked only one pick for Rory.

It'll be sad if Phil can't go either. The Masters without those two would be pretty weird IMO.

Anyway, here are some phun Fil fotos phrom over the years.

Which Europeans are getting picked over Rory?  I'm not saying he will win The Masters by any means, but if I get two Europeans, he's going to be one of them almost every time.  I definitely wouldn't pick Phil because of the injury concerns, but if he tees it up next week, he will be a factor.

Great thread!!!! Philly Mick is the man. He's a very good guy, and oh ya he plays ping pong too.

This might be his chance to FINALLY! win the Masters, with Tiger out of the field. I sure wish Phil had a green jacket. All these years getting so close, but still no green jacket.

(April fools suckers)

Phil's form (I stopped) hasn't been that terrible leading up to Augusta.

But I guess if he can't play the Shell, then he can't follow his normal Masters warm-up routine. With the oblique injury (anyone know if this is actually a serious injury), it's not looking good for Phil this year.

But isn't that always when he somehow turns out to play his best golf? :-D Everyone writes off Phil and then he wins.

Spieth? This is his very first Masters and they pick him? I dunno about that.

I wondered the same thing.  So I just went to the World Golf Rankings website and say that there are two above Rory right now:

Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose ... so perhaps those are the ones everybody is picking?

(Sergio, then Graeme McDowell, then Ian Poulter are the next three Euros on the list.)

Watching GC the past several days off and on, and I've yet to hear anything about Lefty and his injury - as if the golf world has forgotten all about him and his chances next week. Is he an afterthought anymore?

He pulled out of the Shell pro-am this morning due to the injury, but he's scheduled to tee off tomorrow at 8:50 am still. I guess we'll just have to see what happens.

No real word on if this is a legit injury that could keep out of the Masters yet.

Wow, man, I hope he makes it to Augusta healthy

If Lefty can't make it, all isn't lost. There are still some great players left to put on the green jacket - wouldn't be upset if Kuchar, McIlroy, McDowell, Poulter, Westwood, Donald, Dufner, Schnedeker, Furyk,  Augusta's own Charles Howell III - even a newbiy like Russell Henley (U of GA).  If Zach Johnson or Adam Scott wins another one, that wouldn't upset me either.  There's a ton of others capapble (Stenson, Dustin Johnson, Watney, Haas, Webb Simpson).  It'll be great to watch from start to finish. Tiger who?

    • I agree there may be repercussions from using force to restrain a criminal but I believe as long as the force was used to only restrain the individual and no additional bodily harm was done the courts would be lenient in their ruling and most likely no charges would result in most jurisdictions.   The alternative is the courts send a message to all victims of crimes that they are helpless and must solely depend on the police to capture criminals even when they are face to face with them.    
    • https://www.gamegolf.com/player/bweiss711/round/1137850 A couple of firsts in this round.  It was my first round using the GG tags, and it was also my first round ever under 100.  If you want to see what 18 holes looks like when you have no clue where the ball is going off the tee and have no short game at all to speak of.... check out this round!
    • I think the point is, if the victim of a non-violent theft decides to use violence against the thief well after the crime was committed, he opens himself up to all kinds of trouble. Obviously it's different if someone gets jumped or car-jacked and the criminal is the first one to threaten or use violence. I'm not sure how pepper spray is classified in terms of being a weapon or not but I imagine using it could legally be considered assault in a situation like this.  
    • Well, I did it!  Been taking hacks at golf courses for 20 years, started actually practicing 7 weeks ago, and I finally mother-effing broke 100 yesterday.  Shot 96 at a course I had only played one time before about 8 years ago. This was easily the most consistent I've ever hit the ball into the greens (8 GIRs) and my driving was as good as it has been all season.  The biggest thing with the driver was deciding to stop trying to be perfect on the tee.  Meaning, I wasn't concerning myself with how I thought I should be ideally hitting the club, instead, I just hit it the way I naturally hit it right now, played the "power fade" aimed out over the left side of the fairway, and mostly kept it in play.  I was still inconsistent off the tee with a few pop ups and pulled shots, but for the most part, I stayed out of trouble. The even better news is that I shot 96 and my short game was terrible. I had a couple duffs in sand traps and from the rough around the greens.  Plus, of my 8 GIRs, I 3-putted 5 of them and it wasn't always the lag putt that was the problem.  I missed a few 3 footers that you just can't miss.  So, I've still got plenty of strokes to remove from my score once I actually start to work on shots around the green.  To this point, all of my practice has focused full swings with the irons and driver.  So, needless to say, I'm really excited about this.  I think i'm just going to play the rest of the season with the same practice focus.  Might be time to start a "member swing" thread for my driver.  And in the off-season, the focus will shift to the short game. Unfortunately, it might be a few weeks before I'm able to get out for 18 again, but I can't wait to get out there and try to do this again.
    • The incident in the OP doesn't sway my opinion on gun control one way or the other. Isolated incident in which some angry, old white dude should lose his right to carry indefinitely, but nothing that makes me believe that every gun carrier needs to be affected or restricted due to this incident. The John Wayne comments from some of y'all however, do make me think that gun laws need to be seriously revisited. The fact that some of you...ahem...more extreme individuals are actually permitted to carry is frightening indeed. And before there is an uproar, let me be clear that I have no issue with most of you who carry as your comments seemed to be well balanced and rational. Some others...not so much. It's seems pretty obvious to me that your right to bear arms should be dependant upon on your ability to not lose your shit when you're pissed off.
