The Players Championship got underway with Round 1 in the books down in Florida at TPC Sawgrass. The temperature hovered in the high 80s all day and here’s what Phil Mickelson choose to wear:

ON A GOLF COURSE IN FLORIDA!!!!!!!!!!
The Lil’ Dogg is starting to sweat just looking at Phil.
The dude is UNCOMFORTABLE.
It’s hard enough just getting up out of a chair in a button down without becoming all untucked and shit, never mind reaching up for something off a top shelf or God-forbid bending over to pick up something off the floor and this guy is out here twisting and turning swinging a golf club trying to compete in a professional sporting event for chrissakes.
What the hell are you thinking Phil Mickelson????
Sweet sweet cash 💵 is the only explanation here:
Obviously the bar for endorsements is pretty low for ol’ Phil. Give him 5 bucks and he’ll do a 30 minute infomercial spot promoting your Aunt’s Custom Knit Wear Etsy store.
But what a golfer wears on the course has real life benefits or consequences on his or her play. So how did Phil shoot you ask?
Mickelson posted a First Round 79, +7 on the day, putting him 13 strokes off the leaders and a few back of the Cut line so:
Actually Phil might want to try putting on one of Pete Campbell’s suits. He’d certainly look better and he can’t play any worse.
