4. Phil Mickelson goes after the PGA Tour
After a rocky performance at the Tour Championship, Mickelson voiced his resentments about the differences between East Lake’s set-up and Hazeltine which hosted the Ryder Cup a week later.
“We’re not going to have rough like that — this is the worst rough I’ve seen in years. We’re not going to have that rough next week. Why the Tour set it up so differently from what we’re going to have next week is a lack of communication and working together,” he said.
It’s just one of many opinions Phil has voiced over the relationship between the PGA Tour and the PGA of America.
