Phil Mickelson’s recent comments in support of the Saudi Arabia backed Super Golf League has generated a great deal of controversy. But is this level of hostility truly warranted? I don’t believe so. Throughout his thirty year run on the PGA Tour, Lefty has proven to be one of the most kind, generous, and exciting players on the course. And I believe those qualities should vindicate Phil from much of these attacks. Like everyone else, Phil is an imperfect man, and he should be judged on the basis of all of his actions on tour, (which are mostly good), rather than one bad moment. We should all take a step back, and not pile on Phil, he deserves the benefit of the doubt.
