Phil Mickelson Says BRING ON THE MEAT!
I'd have to say the reason that Phil Mickelson has decided to end his run as a vegetaran the same week he is visiting the United Arab Emirates has nothing to do with the difficulty of ordering a Caesar salad over there, but you never know.
But the reign is over ... Mickelson will again be eating meat, he told reporters on Wednesday, something he decided to change when he was diagnosed psoriatic arthritis back in 2010. That didn't last long, however, and it seems that the burger-loving lefty will again be back at the drive-thru line.
I do like the fact that Phil still can chomp down on a Five Guys burger here or there. He always was the guy that wasn't scared to do that, and when he was forced to switch veggie, it just never felt the same. Now, he's back, and even though he said he's more aware of what he eats, I hope to one day be stepping on peanut shells near the major championship winner as we both eye down a delicious, meaty slab of beef.
Welcome back, Phil!
