Phil playing vs LPGA in the 'Skills Challenge' next week:

Post by bulls9999 on Wed Jun 21, 2017 2:37 pm

Mickelson will compete against LPGA Tour pros in Skills Challenge

http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/golf/mickelson-will-compete-against-lpga-tour-pros-in-skills-challenge/ar-BBD04hr?li=BBnba9I&ocid=UE03DHP

One of golf's most skilled short-game artists will be putting his skills to use against some of the LPGA Tour's best next week. Phil Mickelson will participate in a Skills Challenge at next week's KPMG Women's PGA Championship at Olympia Fields in Illinois, which will pit him against Lydia Ko, Stacy Lewis and Brooke Henderson, the defending champion of this women's major.

The group will compete in three timed skills challenges – chipping to an arrangement of target, then hitting a flop shot over an eight-foot wall before having to trying to break panes of glass (with their faces on each of them) – in a kind of Big Break meets American Ninja Warrior challenge. ESPN's Mike Greenberg will host the event and conduct a Q&A afterward with a collection of youth golfers in attendance.

The Skills Challenge will take place on the South course at Olympia Fields, site of the 2003 U.S. Open and where next week's KPMG Women's PGA will be. Mickelson doesn't have the best history at the course, finishing T-55 at that '03 U.S. Open. ANd he'll have his hands full trying to beat the LPGA Tour's best next week in this Skills Challenge – despite his short-game savvyness.

Maybe for an encore he'll be on Big Break and break glass windows.

Ha ha. Worked for Tony Finau. It's not for the money, IMO, so it's for a sponsor, attention, or he owes somebody a favor. Maybe mid- life crisis time!

Maybe he lost another bet to Stacy Lewis like in the commercial where he caddies for her.

So Phil is playing a 'skills challenge' with Lydia Ko, Stacy Lewis and Brooke Henderson. Let's hope he doesn't get 'dusted' and ends up having to caddy for all 3 of them Wink

I watched it on the LPGA Facebook page last night. They were live, so the video should still be up there. Phil is also on at 7pm tonight on golf channel. I forget the name of the show, but it is the one with Blair O'Neil and an older guy giving lessons.

At least he won it. Wonder if his family will be there this week since they now have a home there. Be nice if he made the cut!
