Today’s Top Quote:
Phil Mickelson’s caddie, Jim “Bones” Mackay, scouts the course at Erin Hills with the potential of Phil Mickelson making it to the U.S. Open in time:
“It would be an understatement to call this a championship venue…The fairways are generous. You have to be creative. If the wind blows, you’ve got to fly your irons, which I feel like he’s [Mickelson] very good at. Of course the short game. He wants it obviously, as badly as he wants anything else so it would be a really cool thing if it worked out for him tomorrow.
“Knowing Phil and knowing how much he wants to play, it wouldn’t surprise me if he left if rain wasn’t in the forecast. You never know out here with this kind of humidity, storms can roll up unexpectedly. I’m leaving him alone, but it wouldn’t surprise me if he left, flew a little bit and then if the guys tee-off at 2:20, turn around and go home.”
