ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I'm certainly far more nervous out here trying to make a 10-foot putt than anything else I do professionally.”

BRAIN TEASER: This player missed the cut in his PGA TOUR debut but gave his playing partners a gift. Who is he?

ANOTHER REASON WHY GOLF IS GREAT! Phil Mickelson passed on his hometown event, the Farmers Insurance, because it was too much of a golf course. His words, not mine. He missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, his last event, where he has won three times previously. He won at age 48 beating the some of the best players in the world and handling Mother Nature along the way. Don’t look now but this year’s U.S. Open is being held at Pebble Beach. It’s the only major in the Grand Slam Mickelson hasn’t won. He has finished second, six times. Guess where he made his PGA TOUR professional debut? At the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach! Lefty will turn 49 on June 16th, the final round (weather permitting) of the 2019 U.S. Open!!

THESE GUYS ARE GOOD! Phil Mickelson won the 2019 Pebble Beach Pro-Am by shooting 19-under par. A year ago he finished second to Ted Potter Jr, who won with an aggregate score of 17-under. While the weather made it harder for players in 2019, maybe it helped too. Jordan Spieth won the 2017 edition coincidentally also with a score of -19. So much for the golf ball being an issue with scoring!

The Cumulative Scoring Averages for the week in 2017 was:
Pebble Beach (71.900)
Spyglass Hill (68.641)
Monterey Peninsula (67.276)

2018
Pebble Beach (72.018)
Spyglass Hill (71.783)
Monterey Peninsula (70.063)

2019
Pebble Beach (72.173)
Spyglass Hill (71.723)
Monterey Peninsula (70.652)

GOOD OR BAD FOR BUSINESS? It’s been less than a month since the major of the golf business was conducted. The PGA Merchandise Show is historically been the launching point for new product introductions in advance of the recreational playing season. There seems to be less new items this year than previously reported. Meanwhile, Callaway Golf is shifting away from golf to other outdoor activities with its purchase of Jack Wolfskin.

THE BEST IS YET TO COME! Phil Mickelson is closing in on three decades on the PGA Tour and a half-century on Earth, and he still feels his best golf is good enough.
He was at his best at Pebble Beach, and no one had a chance. A Monday finish brought on by rain and a freak hailstorm was only a minor inconvenience for the 48-year-old Mickelson. He played two holes just as well as the previous 16 and polished off his bogey-free final round with one last birdie for a 7-under 65 and a three-shot victory over Paul Casey in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
