Phil Mickelson's Fashion Has Officially Double Bogeyed the 18th at Winged Foot
Listen, Phil Mickelson has come back in my good graces the last few months. His play against Tiger Woods in the final round of the Masters was pretty ballsy, even if he struggled on the back nine (granted, it was still a 67, so there's that). Mickelson has lost weight and started working out and looks about as good as when he first wore the conquistador helmet in Tucson.
That said, the guy's fashion right now is as erratic as his tee shots can be. We all know about the white belt Phil pulled out months ago to much chagrin. Now, on a day where Tiger posted a 7-under 65 at Quail Hollow, Phil has gone with the green shirt and green belt! Evidence is above, but I'm awaiting a Getty Images photo of his cream pants and white shoes as well.
I'm putting out a watch on The Golf Girl right now. She might have to tackle Phil if he continues down this fashion path.
