All of us that watched The Masters over the weekend were treated to a real classic. It was an amazing week at Augusta and it’s one that will be remembered as one of the best of all time. From Arnie and Jack’s historic tee shots to Phil and Amy’s embrace it was about as good as it can get. We’ve seen the scene behind eighteen before: Phil wins and his lovely wife and beautiful children rush to hug him. But we haven’t seen it enough recently. To steal a line from Jim Nantz, Sunday’s version of The Mickelson Hug was “One for the Ages.”
Phil has said that they have a very good long term prognosis for Amy but the day to day recovery can be challenging. When the treatment is sometimes as difficult as the illness it is easy to be worn down. In the video here with Tom Rinaldi, Phil talks about his win and his life. Take a look at Phil’s eyes: they looked like they got quite a work out on Sunday.
In the picture here, posted by Jay Busbee on Devil Ball Golf, Phil and family are at the drive through of a Krispy Kreme, the next morning after The Masters. He’s doing the “dad thing” in the green jacket. Donuts for everybody! Phil takes his parenting seriously…he is the man!
