Mickelson’s Second More Important Than The First

If anything, Phil Mickelson’s second major maybe more important than his first. Sure, his win at Augusta removed the “best player never to win a major” title, but his second showed that the Masters was not a fluke (although I think he already had shown that with last year’s near misses at the US Open and the Open Championship.).

Now, in a way, he is free to go on winning. The staff at Shark dot Com thinks that Mickelson is not going to be satisfied with just two.

George Kimball of the Boston Herald agrees, saying that Mickelson:

put some distance between himself and one-hit wonders like Shaun Micheel, Paul Lawrie, Ben Curtis and Todd Hamilton.

At Sports Illustrated, Gary Van Sickle writes:

It’s official now. Mickelson is going to be a Hall of Fame player—he probably was, anyway, but a second major championship makes him a lock. It also means Davis Love, who finished tied for fourth with Tiger Woods, may still be on the outside looking in.

Wow. Harsh words. Davis missing the Hall of Fame? So much unused potential.
