Deciding to flip on a quick video for the tweeps while making the most famous drive in golf — naturally — Phil talked about the day he had ahead. He talked about his ever-increasing swing speed and how he plans on using it to hit “bombs” today. He also talked about the course, and how he plans to take advantage of it.
But the best part of all came when Phil Mickelson brought up his friend and playing partner, Matt Kuchar. The notorious trash-talker that he is, lefty didn’t miss the opportunity to take a hilariously savage jab at Kuchar following the long-running caddie-tipping saga.
“Obviously we’re not gonna see any side-action today,” Phil said. “I’d probably see like .06% if I win.”
Golf fans, as you might expect, loved it.
