Phil has taken to Twitter like a fish to water and his unique insight into the life of a highly successful Tour Professional has become entertaining and refreshing. Mickelson took to twitter today to remind everyone exactly how good Tiger is going right now (incase you needed a reminder) as well as poking fun at himself asking for a shot a side in their much anticipated money match. The fun didn’t stop their however with a couple of quick tweets back also raising a laugh.
I just played with Tiger today and it is the best I’ve ever seen him swing the club. It is so on plane and solid. I’ll be asking for a shot a side for our Thanksgiving match. I doubt I’ll get it though.

You know things are looking tough when even your family is encouraging you to ask for more shots…
Shoot for 2. Worth a try, right? Love you, bro.

Or when a twitter account decides to remind you exactly how badly Tiger beat you last week…
Ask for 3 aside… After all, that is what he beat you by last week.

Either way I take my hat off to Phil for having the humility and the grace to recognise when a champion is in form and take the opportunity to ask for a little assistance even if it is optimistic. I mean in a match worth 10 million dollar the chance of a handicap even from someone on cloud nine is probably out of the question.
