Phil Mickelson shares emotional
moment with family after Open win

USA Today, by Nick Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 7/22/2013 10:59:44 AM

Phil Mickelson started the day with a 20/1 chance to win the Open Championship, but a remarkable charge on the back nine at Muirfield secured fifth major championship victory. While Tiger Woods and the rest of the leaders were faltering, Mickelson birdied four of his last six holes, including the 18th, to build an insurmountable lead. His final round 66 ties the best score of any player all week long. After draining a birdie putt on the 18th hole, Mickelson walked off the green and embraced his family, making for one of the greatest photos of the summer.

Comments:
Headline shows nauseating fixation on "emotions" in sports coverage. ESPN devoted all British Open remaining time to Phil-huggimg shots (and slow-motion fist pumping)while not covering FOUR golfers that still had a chance to win! Frustrating, typical and sickening. Am I alone in my disgust?

I´m in total agreement, OP. With all of the death and destruction being imposed upon the world, dropping a little ball into a hole has no significance whatsoever.

At the same time Tiger was behind the scoreboard cheating on Lindsay.

What I watched was a delayed broadcast. I already know who the winner was so concentrating on the winner wasn´t that big a deal for me. Glad Phil won. He appears to be a class act.

Even the Brits have succumbed. Interviewer at Wimbledon speaking to Sabine Lisiciki: ´I´m not supposed to ask how you feel but how do you feel?´

Mind you, USA Today still pays the execrable Christine Brennan a handsome salary for an occasionally inventory of cliches and militant Title IX feminist nonsense so they are one of the most useless outlets extant.

The media has long hated Tiger Woods. He refused to play their race game from the start.

Michelson has been their guy and they´re finally getting their orgasms over his win.

Actually, the final four golfers were mathematically eliminated by the 18th hole.

That said, ESPN is the worst. I´m sick of their fixation on Tiger Woods.

OP, it occured to me that a significant portion of the final round telecast was shown on tape passed off as live action. I´m certain the outcome was determined before the celebratory interview of Phil by Tom Rinaldi

I don´t believe most knew they were watching a delayed telecast. But even more, #7 gets it right. Golf is about math, too. Best to pay attention.

We thought it was a lovely moment. An athlete who has gone through a lot of stuff - with his wife´s cancer and with his own chronic illness - to earn a win like this. And to have his wife and children there to wrap him in hugs and his caddy actually shed tears. The admiration and affection for Mickelson was obvious in the crowd and the officials. And definitely not staged.

When did we start throwing stones at the good guys in our world?

I, for one, don´t particularly agree with OP, which is unusual for me. With nine holes remaining about eight players were in a position to win with a strong back nine. Open pressure wilted everyone except Phil. When he saved par on #16 to stay at 1-under-par, he kept his momentum going. By the time his birdie putt fell on the final hole, I knew that nobody was going to catch him, regardless who was behind him. Muirfield is too tough to allow a finish like Charl Schwartzel had to win the Masters in 2012 (he birdied the final four holes).

Some of us sports or music fans are just as knowledgable (if not moreso) about what´s going on in the serious world as those who fill their minds with news daily, agonize over man´s inhumanity to man, and look down their noses at those of us who cried tears of joy to see a nice man make some golf history. I save my disgust for the unfunny clown circus that Washington and the cruel world have become, for the malignant characters who are doing their level best to tear apart the noble idea that was once America. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Everyone needs some diversion. If you weren´t smiling to see the Mickelson family hug-huddle next to the 18th green (especially after what Amy has been through), you´re missing something essential to living a good life.

Like others have post OP you´re not alone in your disgust. I´m happy for two things, however. That Mickelson won because he is a class act and that Tiger lost again. That guy was a smuck even before he tried to break Wilt Chamberlain´s hit ´em and leave ´em record.

The difference between Phil and Tiger:
Phil is a true sportsman, gracious in victory and defeat.
Tiger: Well, if Obama had a son who was not a girlie man, he would act like Tiger Woods.

Thank you, #10.

I am glad that God and my parents gave me a mind that can follow current events in depth and still enjoy a number of sports. Something I can share with my husband, from whom I have learned a lot.

I find it strange to see words like "nauseating" and "disgust" on a thread about a nice guy, a gentleman, like Phil Mickelson. I would be troubled by it, what it means, except that we have a lot of people here who shoot off stuff like that out of their own generalized anger or feelings of frustration. It reflects on the site and those of us who save our enmity for the real enemies out there.

When did people who didn´t care about a game feel it necessary to watch it, read about it and post nasty comments about it. What´s the point?

OK tape delayed but assuming the coverage was real time and unchanged for later broadcast, I´ll suggest the ABC wouldn´t have been averse to a highly improbable comeback, pulling the rug out from under Phil. PM´s history of major championship heartbreak could have the ultimate icing on the cake. The choice to highlight the family´s emotion would have made the pain that much more delicious for those given to the mindset.

Cynical? Oh yeah, but having our strings pulled by our corrupt media makes it easy.

I am not a basketball fan. Ergo, I do not post on basketball-related threads.

That aside, Phil came down the stretch like Tiger used to. Lee would have been another great story, but you have to hit a few fairways. Unless you´re Seve.

Wasn´t it a British Open years ago when they were interviewing the presumed champ, John Daly, when Constantino Rocca holed out from Northern Ireland to tie it? Daly ended up winning anyway, but the look on his face was sheer terror. Phil was spared that.

Thanks to all for the kind words.

#19´s memory is faultless. In the 1995 Open Championship played at the Old Course at St. Andrews--the home of golf and Old and Young Tom Morris--Rocca (from Italy) was about eighty feet away, putting from the Valley of Sin, a significant dip in front of the green. And he made it! Daly did look rather ill at that moment. But tournament players must always expect their opponents to do the unexpected.

(During a rain and lightning delay in a tournament a pro friend of mine from Australia was holding forth in the men´s grill at a nearby table. He´d made a couple of long ones, which we variously call "field goals" or "snakes." Although I was in a kind of pensive mood, I burst out laughing when he said in his perfect Australian accent, "On the 12th I got me a snake, and on the 13th, I got an anaconda." Rocca´s bomb to get into the playoff with Daly was an anaconda.)

Phil dominated the final round and earned this victory, outscoring Westwood and Woods by 9 strokes. But the fact that all 4 threads about his win have devolved into a discussion of Tiger only underscores that he is he dominate force in golf for this generation...he´s #1 in the World, in 2013 earnings and the FedEx although he has played only 2/3 of the tourneys others in the top 10 FedEx have played...Yes, Tiger hasn´t won a major for years, but he is stuck on 14! Phil has perhaps 7 more years of majors and will win a few to add to his current total of 5...Tiger has 13 more years and will win a few while establishing new records...lousy and failed husband, yes, but lousy individual? Name another athlete who has given $100million of his earnings to charity via his own foundation...

Lousy individual....yes....like knowing he was breaking the rules with the drop in the Masters, a few years ago getting a crowd of people to move a bolder so he could have a clear shot to the green, and worst of all either a very loud GD or F bomb after a bad shot.

Poster 24, I respectfully disagree with your assessment of the number of years Tiger and Phil have left as serious contenders in majors. For it represents a defiance of odds for a 40+ player to win multiple majors. Nicklaus won 3 majors after 40, Hogan 2, Boros 2, According to my memory, no other player in the past 65 years won more than 1 major after age 40.

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

Marco Rubio is smack in the middle of the current polls for the 2016 presidential primary. But he may be the early frontrunner when it comes to offering a realistic conservative agenda for reforms that address the economic challenges of modern America. And whether or not he pulls the trigger on a White House run, the U.S. senator from Florida is already helping to refashion the GOP once again into the Party of Ideas. In a series of smart domestic-policy speeches this year, Rubio has generally avoided the easy, reflexive response as to what’s gone terribly wrong with the American

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
