Don't Ask Phil Mickelson A Dumb*** Question.
By mustang6560 on 3/22/13
I wasn't present when Bob something-or-other from Mastercard asked three-time Masters champion Phil Mickelson if he was looking forward to Augusta but I'm glad he did! What kind of dumb*** question is that!
To be fair to Bob, I imagine he was just trying to make small talk. He probably didn't realize Phil was going to take offense to the innocent question and call him out by name for it later.
Does anyone else have the urge to yell "FIGJAM" after watching this clip?

I can see yelling FIGJAM! But my first thought was - What a douche-bag!!
I do not advocate yelling on a golf course, but someday I would love to hear a spectator yell FIGJAM!! after Phil "Look How Perfect I Am" Mickelson tees off.
Phil might be even more upset if you call him a two-time Masters champion. Might want to correct that to three. ;)
I can totally understand Phil in FIGJAM mode, but that looked like it was during the pro-am yesterday. I bet the guy from MasterCard was there just off camera during the interview, and Phil was just busting his chops for asking such an obvious question. More along the lines of how you give any of your buddies crap on the course about almost anything.

After listening to sports reporters ask some of the dumbest questions ever at the media interviews that are part of every tournament I am not shocked that a civilian might fall into the same trap. Sports commentators are almost as bad when they interview a player that has just had a melt down "How do you feel? If I were the player my answer would be "I feel like kicking you in the ass".

Joe Jones makes an excellent point. Sports "journalism" really has sunk in the last few decades, and when ordinary schlubs like Bob from MasterCard see that, they think they're asking smart questions. I don't think this was a FIGJAM moment - I think Mickelson deservedly chewed out the guy for asking a monumentally stupid, softball question.
I would have waited until after the round to ask Lefty something about how the weather and humidity in Florida makes him prepare differently for these tournaments these days, given his psoriatic arthritis.
Just another instance of Phil being an ass. That's why people dislike him. FIGJAM!
People don't dislike him they dislike that jackass tiger.
Um, I do & I'm not the only one. So yeah, there are people that dislike Phil the magnificent. FIGJAM!
Tiger is a better golfer.....nan..na..na..na....what does this article have to do with Tiger.....Tiger is rubber and you are glue......
I think I like Phil a little more after this.
Ask a dumb question, get ribbed, as you should. That is classic! I am with Jattruia, I like Phil even more after seeing that.
