Golf is a mental game — everybody says so.
So it has been interesting to watch the course at Oak Hill beat the brains out of the No. 1 and No. 2 players in the world.
Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson started today’s final round of the PGA Championship well out of contention — Phil in second to last place. Many of the announcers said they were actually looking forward to watching the two, thinking they would be more aggressive and willing to let loose since they didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning.
I’m not sure we’ve seen that.
What we did see was Tiger waving the white flag — ever so symbolically — even before he stepped up to the first tee. He traded the solid red shirt he traditionally wears on Sundays for a model with a gray back and collar.
