For all Arizona State/left-handed/In-N-Out burger fans out there, it is a sad day in Ohio. Your hero, Phil Mickelson, has withdrawn from the Memorial after citing a bad left-wrist.
The 2005 Masters champion has only left a tournament early one other time, at the 2004 Las Vegas Invitational, because
With his exit being the top story, Sean O’Hair will have to take another back seat to Lefty. O’Hair posted a 7-under 65 even with a bogey on the par-3 17th (man, that was a lot of numbers in one sentence). I am starting to believe that Phil actually has a thing out for O’Hair, not allowing him to every fully enjoy a good week of golf. Selfish Phil – pick on someone your own weight.
In other Memorial news, Ernie Els has been found and is alive – you can take down the MISSING posters that cover your telephone poles. The South African is tied for second with only two holes to play.
Also, Tiger is two-under through five holes as is Zach Johnson. I bet he shoots 68, a pretty typical first round for the Golfing Jesus.
