Phil Mickelson has two legs up on hitting it longer, straighter -- seriously

Phil Mickelson has two legs up on hitting it longer, straighter -- seriously

PEBBLE BEACH — “I walk around this golf course,” a radio reporter said to Phil Mickelson Thursday afternoon at Spyglass Hill, “and I wonder how you shot 62 here.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is called a set-up line. Mickelson, who set the course record in 2005, could have gone any of a number of directions with his response. Sort of like his driver. He played it deadpan straight. “I do, too.” Ba-da-bing. By now we’re aware that Mickelson doesn’t play it straight, at least not off the tee. The left-hander acknowledged as much last week, noting that becoming an average driver would be an improvement. And from the fairway he is still capable of scoring, which is what he did on the back nine at Spyglass Thursday in his opening three-under 69.
