What's wrong with Phil?

March 16, 2009

The question was ubiquitous (see here and here, among countless other places) in the wake of Phil Mickelson's miserable start to the year: What's wrong with Phil?

There was this headline, too: "Has Phil lost it?"

The answers are and always were: Nothing and no.

Shouldn't we have learned this by now? He runs spectacularly hot and cold and always has, which makes him, next to Tiger Woods, the most interesting player in golf.
