If you haven't heard, a lesser known golfer by the name of Phil Mickelson triumphed at the Northern Trust Open today, outlasting veteran Jeff Quinney by two shots.
Mickelson and Quinney, both
Quinney told reporters after the round that he had called Vijay Singh on Saturday, asking him for the best possible advice for taking down his first PGA Tour victory.
Singh, who played solid down the stretch last week at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am but lost by a hair in a playoff, led Quinney in the right direction.
"He told me, it really only matters what you do on the first 11 holes of the tournament, the last few are only for show," Quinney said.
Four bogeys on the last six holes showed how well Quinney listens to instructions, handing the trophy to Schmickey.
The good side of all this? It appears that Mickelson is playing well enough this year to give us some barn burners between him and Mr. Woods. If the two could bring it to Augusta, 2008 could prove to be a special year between the two golf titans.
