Shipnuck: What I’ll be watching today at the FBR Open

By Alan Shipnuck Obviously, I will be watching all the desert foxes who
make the FBR such a pleasurable spectating experience. The 16th and 17th holes
are also mandatory viewing – the former for the gallery hijinks, the latter
because it is the archetype of the risk-reward short par 4. But most of all I
will be watching Phil Mickelson. The mercurial
Lefty is making his season debut on Thursday, the start of one of his most
important campaigns. Over the last two years Mickelson has won some nice
tournaments, but he’s been a non-factor in the majors. Closing in on 39, he’s
entering the final act of his career and no longer has time to squander. Phil
needs a strong West Coast trip to generate momentum for the runup to Augusta. Dave
told me this week that he had never seen Phil in such fine form this early
in the year. The proof may come during the FBR’s first round. Get scores and tee times on the leaderboard.
