AUTOIMMUNE ARTHRITIS IS NOT THE SAME AS REGULAR. I HAVE LUPUS AND RAYNAUDS IS RIGHT ALONG WITH IT. WHEN I SAW 2 GLOVES COME OUT IN COLD WEATHER I KNEW WHAT HE WAS PROBABLY GOING THRU. YOU CAN LOSE YOUR FINGERS. I AM NOT A PHIL FAN BUT WHAT HE HAS IS WORSE THAN ANYONE CAN KNOW. LUPUS IS LIKE LIVING WITH A RATTLESNAKE. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN OR WHERE IT WILL STRIKE. RIGHT NOW I AM BEING ATTACKED IN THE LUNGS. NOT FUN. I FEEL FOR HIM. I THINK TIGER WILL SURPRISE TOMORROW AND I AM GLAD THAT HE IS NOT WITH ADAM.
"According to the February GQ article naming Phil Mickelson one of the
most hated guys in sports, the other players on the PGA Tour call him
Why do they call him FIGJAM? Just go to Phil’s official Web site
www.philmickelson.com which contains Phil’s letters to his fans and a
description of what a truly warm, caring, cuddly, charitable,
big-lug-you-love-to-hug Phil really is.
Excerpt: “What separates Mickelson from his peers is there truly is
more to this young man than his smooth swing, silky putting stroke, booming
drives off the tee and creativity around the greens. He represents a link to the
past, a link to the greats who have made the game what it is today. Jones.
Hagen. Sarazen. Nelson. Hogan. Snead. Palmer. Nicklaus. Watson.“
Conclusion: Unlike his peers, Phil is more than just a golfer. He’s
larger than life, a symbol, an extension of golf’s lineage, a link to the great
players of the past.
Excerpt: “There are many players who have come along since Watson
that have displayed tremendous skill and accomplishment on the course, adding
their names to the record books. Of these, few, if any, have matched the
off-course respect from his peers and business community and personal respect
for the game more than Phil Mickelson.“
Conclusion: The key phrases here are “few, if any” and “off-course.”
Not only do his fellow PGA Tour players respect him as an opponent, but they
respect him even more as a human being.
Excerpt: “Phil Mickelson understands. He has made it his mission to
carry on the legacy set forth by the landmark players before him. Times have
changed and golf has become more popular than ever. But to Phil, as with every
true competitor and champion, winning is the ultimate measuring stick. But
winning with class, humility, integrity and a true respect for one’s place in
history is what moves one from greatness to legendary.“
Conclusion: Phil isn’t merely one of golf’s greatest players; he’s
also one of the most humble. We know that because he respects his own place in
history and he won’t be satisfied until he’s a legend.
Excerpt: “Mickelson has grown from the All-American boy into a
well-rounded role model and family man. The birth of his daughter, Amanda Brynn,
the day after his runner-up finish at the 1999 U.S. Open has brought new
perspective to Mickelson’s life. While winning continues to be the priority on
the course and a hunger still remains for making his imprint on golf history,
being a great father to his three children (Amanda, Sophia and Evan) continues
to deliver the most satisfaction.“
Conclusion: Readers, draw your own."
