They Said It! Top 10 Quotes of the Week for Jan. 25

Posted at 12:47 PM by Mike Walker

Phil_quote1. "This reminds me a lot of Winged Foot in 2006, where I hit a drive way left off the tents. So this happened to be way right, but off the tents. You know, I've made some dumb, dumb mistakes, and, obviously, talking about this stuff was one of them."

--Phil Mickelson apologizing for complaining publicly about his taxes


2. “All he did was publicly say, ‘I may not be able to afford to live in California.’ And the sports media descended on this guy. The sports media is every bit as left-wing as their news media counterparts are.”

 --Rush Limbaugh on Phil Mickelson’s apology


Ty_quote3. “We will revoke the on-site credentials of all journalists affiliated with outlets that post play-by-play coverage, whether those posts are originating from tournament site or otherwise."

--PGA Tour executive Ty Votaw on the Tour’s new policy on real-time reporting of tournaments



4. “It's on my radar for the first time ever, the thought of being World Number One.”

--Justin Rose, currently ranked No. 4 in the world




Tiger_quote5. “Here I am just talking about it and my hands are sweating just thinking about the feeling I had to get through each and every day.”

--Tiger Woods on winning the 2008 U.S. Open with a broken leg



Rocco_quote6. “Nothing he did ever surprised me. He's that good. But he can't do it anymore because his golf swing is different. It doesn't produce the shots he used to hit.”

--Rocco Mediate on Tiger Woods, via USA Today



7. “We believe in the notion that one body of rules is important, and that's always our intent. We just reserve the option not to, if we have overriding reasons not to do so.”

--PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem on the anchored-putter ban


Horschel_quote8. “I've played the Walker Cup in 2007 over in Northern Ireland at Royal County Down and there was a guy I competed against three times called Rory McIlroy.”

--Billy Horschel on being prepared for the crowds following Tiger Woods



9. “People always want to know why golfers from Asia are so good. Well, now we can see how all the countries stack up."

--Stacy Lewis on the LPGA’s new International Crown event

Tweets of the Week: Luke's new look, Elk's cartoons and Mackenzie's reading list

Posted at 2:12 PM by David Dusek

Back from Labor Day vacation, it's's "Tweets of the Week" with a special Tuesday edition.

Luke's new look
It appears that No. 1 player in the world Luke Donald (@LukeDonald) is still recovering from his recent appearance on David Feherty's talk show. Last week he switched his Twitter photo to a Van Gogh-inspired image.


Scenic Wood
Last week's European Tour event took place in Crans Montana, Switzerland. Englishman Chris Wood (@Chris3Wood) couldn't resist pointing out that the scenery was spectacular.



Devil in the details?
The PGA Tour announced on Friday that it had reached new deals with NBC, CBS and the Golf Channel to continue golf coverage on the networks. However, several specific details about the deals were not released, prompting's Mike Walker (@michaelwalkerjr) to wonder why?


Sisters in swing
Brittany Lincicome (@Brittany1golf) won the LPGA Tour's Canadian Open while her friend, Stacy Lewis, came in second. In the days that followed, Lincicome was excited to see both featured in a Titleist ad.



Trend follower
Phil Mickelson switched to a belly putter last week at the Deutsche Bank Championship, prompting his pal Darren Clarke (@Theprincedc) to send a note to his followers.

Elk's advice for Freddie?
Fred Couples recently announced that he will use one of his two Presidents Cup captain's picks to get Tiger Woods on the team. Steve Elkington (@elkpga), with the help of the folks at, has some humorous advice about who might be a solid second pick.


Required reading?
It's back to school time, and that means hitting the books, but Paige Mackenzie (@Paige_Mackenzie) has a question about one book's inclusion on the list?

Truth & Rumors: Lewis' mom injured in victory pond leap

Posted at 10:33 AM by Mike Walker

The Kraft Nabisco champion’s jump into the water at Mission Hills’ Dinah Shore course is one of the great traditions in sports, but it took an unhappy turn Sunday when Stacy Lewis mother was injured during the leap, according to The Desert Sun newspaper.

Then came the victory leap into Poppie's Pond, where Lewis was joined by her parents, Dale and Carol, her younger sister Janet and her caddie, Travis Wilson.

One problem. Carol Lewis injured her leg sometime during the leap and watery celebration.

LPGA officials confirmed that Stacy's mother was taken to Eisenhower Medical Center for evaluation. Stacy Lewis showed concern for the injury in her post-round press conference.

“I'm not really sure. I haven't been able to check on her yet, but I guess she hurt her leg, so hopefully she's OK,” Stacy said.

Butch Harmon says Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood unlikely to win Masters

Butch Harmon told The Irish Times that Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood lack the world-class short game needed to win at Augusta National.

Harmon told The Irish Times: “Rory hits the ball from right to left, so that’s the good news,” suggesting that McIlroy’s draw shape off the tee will benefit him on several holes, “but I’m not sure his short game is of the quality of some of the other players.”

Harmon, coach of reigning champion Phil Mickelson and the man who helped four-time winner Tiger Woods shape his game to the particular challenges of the Augusta National course, said the same flaw is undermining McIlroy’s Ryder Cup team-mate Lee Westwood in his attempts to land his first major championship.

“Lee struggles around the greens – although he was leading going into the final round last year – because his short game lacks imagination.

“To win at Augusta you have to have enormous creativity and imagination.

So who does Harmon like this week? Dustin Johnson, Nick Watney and of course his prize pupil Mickelson.

Mickelson masters product placement on eve of Masters week

After winning the Shell Houston Open on Sunday in resounding fashion, Phil Mickelson gave all the credit to his Callaway golf clubs.

This week is a great example of why I believe in 2004 signing with Callaway was the best decision I ever made for my career. Because when I had a bit of an issue, the head of R & D flew out, and because I've been experimenting with a couple drivers, he wanted to make sure I had the right ones. Brought the backups. I drove it great all week. It's a great example of why I feel that was the best decision I've ever made for my career, and I went on to win this week. And so I'm just very appreciative to the commitment they've made to me and that I get to be with them.

Mickelson went on to say that his financial situation improved dramatically after opening a checking account at Barclays Bank, that he never felt more rested than after sleeping on the comfortable beds at the Crowne Royal Hotel, and that KMPG accountants are the reason he was finally able to pass Tiger Woods in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Piazza, Clemens don’t re-hash 2000 World Series at golf tournament

Mike Piazza and Roger Clemens crossed paths at Michael Jordan’s charity golf event in Las Vegas over the weekend, but no clubs were thrown, according to The New York Daily News.

Clemens was paired with Ken Griffey Jr., and the two of them put up a good fight, but were no match for Wayne Gretzky and Drew Brees. Gretzky puffed on a series of cigars throughout the day. Clemens kept his sticks in an orange Texas Longhorns bag and changed shirts after nine holes.

And the Rocket never threw anything at Mike Piazza. The two old rivals occasionally mingled at the tees on the Shadow Creek golf resort, as play was bottlenecked by the modest pace of Julius Erving, one hole ahead of them, paired with John Smoltz.

"It's way behind us," Clemens said, when asked about the notorious bat-throwing incident from the 2000 Subway Series.

What to Watch For: Saturday at the McDonald's LPGA Championship

Posted at 9:21 PM by Michael Bamberger

It's hard not to root for Stacy Lewis, the ancient -- 23 years old! -- LPGA rookie. She has a lively and exuberant manner, rhythm-to-die-for, and a back story that just won't quit: she spent over a year in college in a back brace to correct a childhood issue with scoliosis. She turned pro less than a year ago, at last year's U.S. Women's Open, at which she finished in a tie for third.

Now, in her third major as a pro, she's going into the weekend of the LPGA Championship at Bulle Rock in shouting distance of the lead. She opened with a 68 and had an even-par 72 in the second round. If that's her bad round of the tournament, watch out. Bulle Rock is a course where a lot can go wrong and with major-championship pressure it's unlikely anybody is going to go low four straight rounds.

But Saturday's the day she has to do it. There are too many good players bunched near the top to think that some kind of spectacular Sunday finish is going to win the thing. It feels like a U.S. Open, an event for  which Lewis has already demonstrated she knows how to play, and Saturday is the day you must make some progress and at the very least hold steady. Anything 70 and under on Saturday and she'll be in position to win, for the second time in three majors. She's a major talent, and I'll be watching her.
