Joking that he would only talk about the last month and would not discuss his opening 70 at Gullane, former Scottish Open winner Phil Mickelson chimed in on a number of topics. Including, under fairly steady questioning from the UK's finest, his 2018 U.S. Open.
There is no question I have loved the great game of golf since first picking up a club at age 10, but I could argue that it is competition that stirred me as much more more than the game itself. I realized late in life that golf was my primary and life-long vehicle to competition, so when I lost my ability to compete, I lost some of my desire to play the game. But for many decades, golf quenched that thirst like little else, and there was and remains perhaps no confluence of all the elements of competition greater than the Ryder Cup. JACK NICKLAUS
