Phil Mickelson doesn’t hold back, especially when it comes to on-course commentary.
On the season premiere of ‘Feherty,’ which will air March 6 on the Golf Channel, Mickelson showed off his talent for storytelling. The star anecdote revolves around an alternate-shot match at the 2002 Ryder Cup where Mickelson was paired with David Toms.
In a tight match, Toms’s approach on the Belfry’s par-4 16th skirted a bunker, but Mickelson stuck the recovery shot within four feet of the pin. When Toms asked for Mickelson’s advice on the upcoming short putt, Lefty let him have it.
“‘What do I think?’ I said, ‘Don’t f— this one up too!’ and walked off the green. And to his credit, he knocks it right in, and after a chuckle that we had, we ended up winning the match 2 and 1.”
