In my humble opinion: Phil is magic.
MAGIC: a power that allows people (such as witches and wizards) to do impossible things by saying special words or performing special actions
Given Phil's propensity to try the unknown, the reduced schedule may impact his imagination (by not being in difficult or different situations very often).
Unlikely - but if it does he'll look like a genius.
No - I think he doesn't benefit from more or less rounds because if his tendency to really tinker with things...
Not really, but experience from 1999 should help him...
More play = better play.
No, we need more Phil.
Golf needs more Phil.
I don't think it matters how much he plays. There's no pattern that dictates when he will be in the zone. Remember, he was 5 strokes back with 9 to play when he started his charge at the Open.
Now, maybe if he reads "Stillpower", ...
I don't think it has anything to do about how much he is playing. I would guess it to be more a mental thing since he says he can see all the things he is doing wrong, but doesn't know why. Time to get back to basics and find that center again.
No... but Phil's talent and desire will.
Simple - yes.
Yes I think it will.
