Mickelson Shows Some Love
By Kickntrue on 4/7/10
A story I missed from this past weekend at the Shell Houston Open was Phil Mickelson bringing in the doctor treating his wife to caddy for him.
Mickelson had invited Dr. Tom Buchholz, a radiation oncologist at Houston's M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, to the tournament along with many other doctors and hospital staff. And on Sunday, on the 14th tee, when Phil was out of contention -- hold the jokes for half a second -- he invited Buchholz to take the bag from regular caddy Bones Mackay.

That's one hell of a cool gesture, isn't it? It cost Phil absolutely nothing -- matter of fact, it might have helped. Buchholz helped Phil to a birdie on 14, and suddenly a one-hole stint turned into three holes.
I think Bones day job is safe. No matter what you think of Phil- very cool. Can think of at least 1 person on Tour who you wouldn't imagine ever doing something like that...

That's the sort of compensation for a doctor no form of currency can match. What a great gesture by Phil. Bravo.

Congratulations Phil on your 3rd Masters win. You are the best golfer in the world and a good family man and a credit to the game, and humanity.
