Mickelson saved biggest shot for Finchem

September 04, 2007

Steve Elling, who covers golf for, didn't miss the most interesting news to come out the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday. Everyone who was paying attention to golf Monday knows that Phil Mickelson beat Tiger Woods in an exciting final-round showdown at TPC Boston. The bigger story was Phil's shot at Commissioner Tim Finchem after the tournament ended. As Elling points out, we'll probably never know if Mickelson gets fined for the remarks he made during a nationally-televised interview with NBC's Jimmy Roberts, but confirmation should come later today that Lefty won't be playing the BMW Championship in Chicago this week. Don't expect to see Mickelson again until the Tour Championship in Atlanta on Sept. 13-16.

. . . and speaking of W/D's from the BMW Championship in Chicago, British Open champ Padraig Harrington said Sunday he has had enough.
