Phil Didn't Get Out Of Bed For Days After Merion And Other Post Open Championship Victory Insights

GolfChannel.com has a nice roundup of quotes from Phil Mickelson making the media rounds, including his admission that he was so tired and beaten down from the U.S. Open loss that he didn't get out of bed much until a family trip and a dinosaur egg got him going again.

There's some great stuff too about the Open, changes in his diet and an epic Bones' story begging a college professor to help him graduate and what the win meant to him from his Dan Patrick interview, which you can listen to here:



Earlier this week Jim Mackay was on the Patrick show and also shared some super insights into The Open:

Finally, Phil hit the Today Show to talk about his Mickelson ExxonMobil teachers academy and to play table tennis.

Congrats to Phil. I've enjoyed living vicariously through him since I was a teenaged, left-handed golfer dreaming of being on the PGA Tour back in the early 90s. I hope there are even more majors and history in store for him in the future.

And Phil on NPR today.

He wasn't planned to be on. Just called in on his own. He's such a sci guy!

@ Amen - thanks for posting the NPR clip - very cool.

It was one thing for Phil to win, and I know he's also plugging his charity work but as I told a friend who was on the fence about Phil years ago and is now a huge fan: the guy is one hell of an ambassador for the game. Great stuff in all these interviews.
