Phil wins At Augusta

April 12, 2010

Phil Mickelson won at the masters this week. This is his third Masters title. He was win less through the beginning of this year. In fact, he struggled mightily. He only had 1 top 10 coming into Augusta. He had one of the best 36 hole finishes of all time. On saturday,  he went eagle,eagle, birde on holes 13-15. He was 5 under in 3 holes. On sunday he struggled off the tee missing 4 strait fairways but, he was able to hit some amazing punch outs like on the 13th hole. He had 205 yards to the hole, on pine straw, hitting through a gap about 3 feet wide, and had to get over a stream. He hit it to 3 feet. It was the best shot of his life and maybe the shot of the decade(2000-2010). What was the amazing part was that his wife and kids were there. His wife made her first appearance on the course since being diagnosed with breast cancer. After Phil made the winning putt ther was a long hug between Amy and Phil. If you couldn’t keep a dry eye when they embraced, you would have to be one cold fish.


My prediction for Phil’s 2010

March 6, 2010

Phil Mickelson had high expectations coming into the 2010 season because he had finished so strongly in 2009 wining 2 tournaments out of his last 3. I think he will live up to the hype. I think he will win 2 majors, The Masters and U.S. open. Yes, the U.S. open. The tournament he has finished 2nd in 5 times but has never won. It is being held in Pebble Beech,California. California is Lefty’s home state so I think he will perform well there. By the end of the year he will have won 2 majors, the FedEx cup, 1 FedEx cup playoff event, 1 WGC(world golf championship) event, 4 regular PGA tour events, and will have taken over the spot as #1 in the world. He has high expectations but I think he will answer the call.
