Phil Mickelson has cheeky response to Tiger’s swing video…then gets burned by his own sister

Published

on

The entire golf world lost their minds yesterday (and understandably so) over a swing video posted from Tiger Woods’ twitter account:

Never one to surrender the spotlight, Phil Mickelson chimed in and challenged Tiger to make a run at Phil’s record of being the oldest golfer in history to win a major championship:

In an interesting twist, Phil’s sister Tina Mickelson promptly replied to the tweet, burning her brother in the process:

To which Phil replied:

It was a great day for golf fans, as there is no denying the sport is in a better place when both Tiger and Phil are in the headlines.

If you are a fan of golf, there’s a good chance you have seen the most recent video of Tiger Woods hitting a golf ball on the range posted to his twitter account yesterday.

As ecstatic as golf fans are about seeing Tiger Woods effortlessly swing a club again, players on Tour seem to be just as fired up about Tiger’s video.

Here we’ve rounded up some of the best tweets from Woods’ fellow PGA Tour players:

The PGA Tour is in a great place, with many young superstars on the rise and interest in the game at all time high. Even still, yesterday was a reminder that nothing moves the needle in the sport of golf like Tiger Woods.

LPGA star Jin Young Ko is on a greens-in-regulation streak that defies belief

Published

on

Two weeks ago, we highlighted how the race to the LPGA titles, both the Rolex rankings winner plus Player Of The Year were too close to call with Jin Young Ko and Nelly Korda clear at the top but with the width of a hair between them.

Things got even tighter as the 23-year-old Floridian won a play-off for the Pelican Women’s Championship, meaning the two had split eight LPGA tournaments between them, and it was all down to the final event, the CME Group Tour Championship.

After three rounds, the pair could not be split and, whilst nothing is taken away from the other joint-leaders Celine Boutier and Nasa Hataoka, this is what LPGA fans were hoping to see – the Big Two fighting down the stretch.

There was only one winner, and she did so in record-breaking style.

Despite not being able to practise pre-tournament due to a wrist issue, the 26-year-old South Korean posted some impressive stats throughout her final 63 holes.

24 birdies since the 10th on Thursday – one-shot runner-up Hataoka also posted 24, whilst Korda hit 18 and an eagle – the undisputed world number one achieved this off a remarkable 63 consecutive greens-in-regulation (!?), a record that has never been close to that and may never do so again, or at least for a very long time.

Put into context, Justin Ray tweeted that Tiger Woods best-recorded figure was 29 greens and that the longest in PGA history was Mike Heinen with 50+ back in 1995.

The embrace by Korda was surely tinged with disappointment, but if you are going to come undisputed second, do it to a player that in her last ten starts has five wins, a second. two six-place finishes and a ninth.
