You have to give it to Phil Mickelson for the following schedule which seems insane, but it is for family. Phil had to miss practice at Merion Golf Club for the U.S. open in order to make his daughter’s graduation, and he will be cutting it close even to his start time. Phil will watch his daughter graduate Wednesday night in San Diego and hop on a 4.5 hour flight to Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania where he will tee off less than six hours later. Well done, Phil.
MIckelson will watch his daughter graduate 2nite in SD, leave about 6 pm., fly 4.5 hours, lose 3 hours, arrive @ 1:30 a.m., T off @ 7:11 am.
