    from playing but that depends upon his scores. The rest he gets for being Phil Mickelson. If you don't think golfers should be paid a million dollars to win a golf tournament then don't watch them. As an avid golfer myself, I appreciate the incredible skill and athleticism of these elite golfers. The difference between the level of play on the PGA and the average duffer hacking it up with a 20 handicap is beyond description. These are the best in the world, perhaps the best that ever played the game. Try making a 4 foot putt for a club championship someday. Then imagine doing it for a million dollars with tens of millions of people watching you.

    Do facts matter anymore?
