10 Things I Think

by Jeff Skinner 1.  Few golfers can go from sizzling hot to freezing cold as quickly as Phil Mickelson.  With a missed cut at Arnie’s place and The Masters in his sights it’s time for Philly Mick to get warm in Houston.  This is a 72 hole practice round for him. 2.  Cheers to Jordan Spieth who has earned over $500,000 in only four events to earn a Temporary Special Exemption.  That means he has unlimited sponsor’s exemptions and we’ll… Continue Reading
