Phil's A Prick
By Kickntrue on 12/13/08
Tiger's caddy Steve Williams is on a longer leash these days. He did an interview and declares his "love" for Phil. He also had a couple fun Tiger and Phils stories- this one from last year's US Open.
The two players were walking down the 17th fairway when, according to Williams, someone shouted "Phil" in Mickelson's direction. The world No2 did not respond until the fan shouted "Hey, Mr Mickelson". When Mickelson turned and waved, the fan yelled out "Nice tits". The crowd erupted in laughter; Mickelson went double bogey, bogey and his chances of winning the tournament disappeared.A great story for sure.
I know a lot of people don't like Phil, or say they say, but I'm surprised to see Williams speaking out publicly. Camp Tiger usually likes to keep Tiger on the forefront.

Ellen DeGeneres also hates the prick.

Tough talk from the guy who makes a living spit-shining Tiger's balls...

I would seriously hope that a golf fan would not be as rude as that but it sure does seem to be more common lately. Show a little more class. The same goes for Steve.
Cant agree with crowds that yell stuff at players, but then it couldn't have happened to a more deserving bloke.
I was there when this happened. I think he misunderstood. The fan said Mrs. Mickelson nice tits.
I worked as an assistant pro at TPC Scottsdale and the Riviera Country Club and had the opportunity to talk with Phil many times. Phil is a great guy!! He is very nice and polite to everyone. He is a little bit of a space cadet but that only adds to his unique personality.
Just funny seeing such talk from a guy who's claim to fame is carrying Tiger's balls. Methinks Stevie boy has fallen under the spell of thinking he's more than he is just cause he's Tiger's caddy.
