Day 11 without playing golf
Lefty is sitting out the Tour Championship. According to an AP story, Phil didn't want to miss Halloween with his kids.
That's cool -- unless you're Tim Finchem, PGA Tour Commissioner. The Tour Championship is supposed to be more important than a candy run.
Can't blame Phil -- kids grow up fast. And apparently it's common knowledge that he doesn't like to play late in the year. Don't expect to see Mickelson on a golf course again until the Bob Hope Desert Classic next February.
