When it comes to burgers, Phil Mickelson has always been an In-N-Out guy. Mickelson even said he wanted to serve burgers from the storied SoCal fast-food outlet at the his first Masters Champions Dinner.
However, this week in Jacksonville, Mickelson found a new favorite burger at Five Guys Burgers and Fries, the Virginia-based upscale burger joint that now has 500 locations in 30 states and a host of fans, including President Barack Obama, who got a burger with lettuce, tomato, jalapeno peppers and mustard at a D.C. Five Guys last year.
Here's The New York Times' On Par blog on Phil's new burger love:

Mickelson planned to chew on that mistake — one of only a few he made in a round that created such a stir, fans peeled away from Tiger Woods’s gallery to follow him — during his sixth consecutive day of dining at Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
So he had that streak going for him.
“That place is so good,” he said animatedly. “I can’t stop going there.”

Coming from Mickelson, it was high praise. For years he has sworn by In-N-Out Burger, a chain that started in California in the 1940s.
“I grew up on In-N-Out,” Mickelson said. “I thought that was the best burger until I had Five Guys. That is hands down the best burger I’ve ever had.”

Responding on Twitter, In-N-Out loyalist Stewart Cink chimed in

Hal Sutton, who won here in 2000, met with reporters earlier in the week. He was asked how hard was it to play good golf when things were not going well at home. It is a subject close to Sutton’s heart; he has been married and divorced four times since turning professional in 1981.
“The most difficult part of being a great player is being able to compartmentalize when to be selfish and when not to be,” Sutton said.
The challenge, he explained, is to say: “I’m going to be selfish for five hours, and I’m not even going to think about a soul or a thought or anything. And then I’m going to pick up balance on the 18th green when I turn my scorecard in.”
Sutton added, “That is the toughest thing in the world to do.”
