Phil Mickelson’s responded to his poor play of late was not to eat anything.
Lefty posted a video on Twitter, telling fans that he lost 30 pounds after going on a six-day fast that included him only drinking water and a unique espresso blend.
Mickelson also said Monday he went on a retreat aimed at getting his sport back to the level he wants ahead of The Open Championship, which starts Thursday at Royal Portrush.
“I don’t know if it’s going to help me play better or not, but I’m willing to do whatever it takes to try to get my best back,” Mickelson said.
Mickelson has missed the reduce seven times in 15 events during the calendar year, including his last two. He has not finished any higher than 18th in a game since winning February’s Pebble Seaside Professional-Am.
The good news for Mickelson: He has cut each of the years three majors.
The bad news: He’s spent precisely a kind of 12 rounds in the competition.
Who knows whether dropping the weight will help Mickelson play better; however, it’s exhausting to see him enjoying worse. At this point, anything’s worth a shot.
Let’s get real for a minute. I haven’t been my best, and I’m doing all I can to get it right. I’ll have more Phireside chats soon as well as an enjoyable new series too. Until then, HIT said by Phil Mickelson.
