WiIl He Or Won’t He: Phill Mickelson and the 2017 US Open

Phil Mickelson is one of the greatest players in modern golf. Michelson, a member of the 2012 Wold Golf Hall of Fame class, has won 7 major championships, but one title has eluted him, the US Open. Lefty has gotton close to finishing off his resume, finishing 2nd a record 6 times In the “greatest test of golf.” Mickelson will turn 47 on Friday, and most assuredly, is running out of chances to finish off an outstanding career. As we close in on the start of the US Open at Erin Hills, tomorrow, the question remains-will Phill even be there to tee it  up.

Mickelson announced two weeks ago that he may miss the US Open, due to his daughter’s high school graduation. Obviouslly, there are more important things in life than golf, certainly your child’s achievements are far more important than your own, as a parent. Oh, By the way, Mickelson’s daughter is president of her class, and will be giving a commencement address to her classmates. Thus, there shouldn’t be a soul second guessing Mickelson’s choice, should he not play tomorrow. However, we are less than 24 hours away from the first tee shot being hit, and Phill remains in the field. With an early afternoon tee-time, Phil will need the skies over Wisconsin to open up in order to pull off the ultimate having your cake and eating it too senecio. If Michelson is, by micricle, able to make his tee time, run out and put some money on him, because clearly the good lord is a, “Phill the thrill”,fan.
