Are Green Jackets Dry Clean Only?
By Kickntrue on 4/13/10
I only ask because Phil Mickelson took his kids through the drive-thru at Krispy Kreme yesterday wearing his green jacket- and you KNOW that isn't staying clean!
I like this ... a lot! It's like the Stanley Cup. Every player gets a day to do whatever they want with it. Some RIDICULOUS stuff has happened with that trophy. Why should the Green Jacket be any different? I think Phil should go skydiving with it on. Water skiing? Why not? Come on Phil- what else can you do?!
I don't think I'd ever take it off; not even to bed (male lingerie?). Just wear it until it disintegrates- which should take about a year- which is perfect timing, since you'll be motivated to pick up another one.

"What will Phil do next?"
I heard it was supposed to stay at Augusta in some kind of trophy room. Gary Player caused some kind of stir by wearing his back to Africa. I never heard whether he brought it back to the U.S. or not.
tournament winners are the only ones that are allowed to take the jacket off club grounds for one year only.
Is that Phil in the pic or Chevy Chase from a few years back...

So, will Phil's green jacket wind up at the bottom of a swimming pool? :)
(Back in the early 1990s after one of the Penguins' first two Stanley Cup championships, the Cup ended up at the bottom of Mario Lemieux's swimming pool. I think they said it took three guys to retrieve the water-logged 31-pound trophy.)
