Phil Mickelson, Truly the Anti-Tiger Woods
My uncle made a great point on the phone a minute ago about Phil Mickelson -- the dude is completely the opposite of Tiger Woods in clutch situations.
Sure, he's won three majors and yes, he's immensely talented, but since Winged Foot he hasn't been the same guy.
Today, Lefty practically wrapped up the trophy for the Bridestone Invitational, tied a cute little bow on top and then handed it over to Vijay Singh, who was doing his best to hand it back.
Schmickey has never won a World Golf Championship and after bogeys on three of his last four holes Sunday, will be WGC-less once more. Always one to allow his game to sway with his confidence, Mickelson had a great shot to enter the PGA Championship next week as the favorite.
Now he's going to have this on his mind, and that ain't good.
