I can understand that different people will put the line in different places, but this is well across the line for me. Phil doesn't need the money, and neither do many of the other committed players. Tiger reportedly declined a $3.3M appearance fee to play in this event. It's blood money, someone said, and I concur. Alan Shipnuck is the man to follow today re: this bit with Phil.
I checked the date of the video, it's 2018, can't tell when video was shot though. It's published by Callaway, so assuming video is pretty recent. Mickelson is a great player, but might be confusing people.
Posted this on IG yesterday, just something I thought would be interesting to throw out there. I could be completely off but when you look at players that have had long, relatively injury-free careers they tend to have more "freedom" with their lower body (Phil, Jack, Sam Snead, Vijay). By freedom I mean allowing the hips to turn, trail knee losing some flex and the lead knee moving inward. I've also felt Tiger's swing, especially in recent years, is too restrictive and hurts his downswing sequencing. Someone commented that it wasn't a good comparison because the swing of Tiger's isn't a driver swing, it actually is but I'll also share this driver swing from last year in Phoenix. Here are some of the comments and my responses:
