Phil Mickelson walked out of the US Open due to oozing oil slick not a penny richer from his appearance in Brookline, Massachusetts. He missed the cut after a 3-for-3 round on Friday that put him at +11 after 36 holes, and if he doesn’t make it to the final two days of the tournament, he won’t get a dime towards his gambling debts. slopes.

It’s not a fair practice, and it’s not good for lesser players without a bank account full of blood money. However, I will make an exception for Mickelson and the nine other LIV Tour golfers who did not receive a (legitimate) payday.

It hasn’t been a great performance for any LIV player, with 10 out of 15 current or future LIV members. he no longer plays. The most notable names outside of Mickelson were Sergio Garcia, Kevin Na, and Louis Oosthuizen. Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed performed better with each session at +1.

Refusing to speak to the media until Friday, Johnson he broke his silence after making the cutand perhaps the rejection should have continued.

“I haven’t really noticed any difference,” he said after the round. “Obviously every time I come to a US Open, it’s a big event. You know it’s going to be good. I felt that I am playing quite well. I just need to tweak it a bit over the weekend.”

It’s a fairly inoffensive quote on first reading, then you realize you’re so insensitive to the way rich people normalize capitalism at all costs that you didn’t mind Johnson’s firing. Not noticing the difference is the problem. The fact that his dreams are not haunted by the ghost of the Saudi present does not mean that his conscience should be clear.

That is the behavior of a sociopath, something like mickelson saying, “I missed competing, but I also enjoyed some time off” after finishing a major tournament that he and his LIV mercenaries hijacked. No one wants to know that he had a splendid vacation. They want stories of a man struggling with this decision.

He too “spoke” via a USGA transcript because he did not speak to the media after Friday’s round. Great way to isolate Leftie, guys. He is almost as disgusting as the fans who congratulated his calves and wished him a happy birthday. According to the transcript, Mickelson praised golf fans at the US Open.

“The fans here have always been fantastic and they really support all sports. I love when we bring golf here because it creates a really special atmosphere.”

Fortunately, some fearless Massholes gave him the “You think you’re better than me” treatment. One yelled, “Already sold!” while another claimed: “Greed is good Phil! Greed is good!” according to Golf Digest.

There was also an audible “Boo!” on the tee of number 6 on Thursday, followed by a “We hate you, Phil!” (Another called out Mickelson for blocking him on Twitter, which is a way of wasting an opportunity.)

That said, those who openly heckled were outliers, according to the Golf Digest article, which doesn’t surprise anyone who covers sports. Fans are more than happy to overlook the covert behavior of their favorite athletes and provide the kind of support that makes it easier for LIV golfers to face their unholy crusade.

there are no number of masseuses demands that will make all the fans believe that Deshaun Watson did the heinous things he is accused of doing. And the LIV players didn’t break any laws, so it’s crazy to expect enough golf enthusiasts to make major tournaments so uncomfortable for the LIV contingent that they don’t want to come back.

I would love for Richard Kiel and a bloodthirsty gallery to chase all the immoral idiots off the grounds of The Country Club in slow motion. That was never going to happen, though, and after the anger subsides, the disdain of signing on the LIV tour will be a greasy footnote like the ones that accompany the careers of so many athletes whose horrible decisions were excused.

All that’s left to do is be extremely petty and enjoy things like Phil and a bunch of his cronies missing the cut and walking out of the U even more.s. Open with nothing but Ls as memories.
