Who’s the best putter in the world? Who’s the best driver in the world? Who hits the best sand shots? Ask that question to tour pros and you might get 10-15 responses. But ask them who has the best short game. Ask them, bullet to your head, who do you want with a wedge and a tourney on the line?
Guess who they’re gonna pick? The guy who practices backward flop shots in the wind.
PHIL MICKELSON DA SHORT GAME GAWD!
For a long time, the British Open looked like the one Phil would never win. The one that would get away. Now he’s looking to go back-to-back at Hoylake. With a hobbled Tiger Woods and a wide open field, I kinda like his chances.
