Good Morning Grateful Golfers! I hope your weekend is going well and that you able to hit the links. I stumbled across this compilation of Phil Mickelson’s flop shots and had to share. He is the standard that I want to achieve on my journey to be a better golfer.
Here is what I mean:
On a completely different not, I came across a quote my Phil about attending the US Open. He said he would not accept a special exemption. He would earn his way:
“I won’t accept it,” Mickelson said at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where he won last year for his 44th career PGA TOUR victory. “So I am either going to get in the field on my own or I’ll have to try to qualify. I’m not going to take a special exemption.”https://www.pgatour.com/news/2020/02/05/phil-mickelson-says-he-wont-accept-us-open-exemption.html
I think that at turning 50, this is a bold move. I also think this is how all golfers should make the cut to a tournament. I understand the “draw factor”, but is this not what professional sports should be like. Play your way into the big tournaments?
Phil continues excite the masses with his approach to golf. I think it is one of the all-time greats and applaud his decision to earn his way into the 2020 US Open field. Play well and shoot low, Phil!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
