Please, enough about the weather and Phil Mickelson at the British Open. Poor Phil, forced to play in the wind and the rain and the pestilence.
Through it all Mickelson, now at 2-under for the tournament through 10 holes, has played a solid front nine (33) to get above the projected cutline. Still, the sour look on his face suggests he’d rather be somewhere else.
Mickelson started all the weather talk with his comments after his 73 Thursday and his dire weather prediction for himself and other morning tee-time players in the second round.
Nobody is crying for Paul Casey (8-under through 12), Peter Hanson (7-under through 13), or Lee Westwood (6-under through 12) or Mickelson’s playing partner Retief Goosen (6-under through 10). All teed off within an hour of Mickelson and have faced the same conditions.
