Mickelson practice rounds anything but routine
Mickelson was working on a game for a practice round at Congressional. There was talk of a rematch from last month at Sawgrass, when Mickelson and Overton beat Johnson and Marino, except that Marino didn’t make it through U.S. Open qualifying.
“Dustin might have to look for a new partner,” Mickelson said.
That shouldn’t be hard to find. The Mickelson matches are proving to be high entertainment, from St. Andrews to Whistling Straits, Augusta National to Akron. More than a thick wallet, this game requires some thick skin.
The payoff is more than a little cash. Mickelson believes it’s getting players more accustomed to pressure situations, if not for a major than perhaps a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup down the line.
Steele picked up on that right away.
“It was awesome,” he said. “Like he always says, `If you can’t make a putt for a couple of hundred bucks, how can you make a putt for a million?’ The one thing he said to us was, ‘All games must be friendly. But we must have enough on them to care.’”
