Posting a third round 71 at the TPC Sawgrass on a day the field averaged 72.54, Phil Mickelson shed doubts about the negative impact of that white hide he straps on one day a tournament week to the chagrin of the Age Appropriateness Fashion Police.
Situated in the row before me, I asked Mr. Style (a.k.a. Marty Hackel of Golf Digest) if this ends any doubts about the belt curse.
"While we love the white belt, Phi has never had a round of 70 with the white belt. Score trumps style everytime."
Hackel added in Ali speak, "He hasn't got any help from the white belt."
