    Do you think he used to practice driving and chipping and putting in between part time jobs?
    Maybe he scratched out a makeshift golf course down at the corner lot when he was growing up all hardscrabble?
    Or did he maybe have access to, you know, golf courses his whole life?

    I can see Canada from my house. No, really, I can.

    •  Actually Mickelson Did have a chipping and putting (0+ / 0-)

      ... green in his backyard when he was a kid.   I think I read that his Dad put it in their yard and he practiced all the time, that is one of the reasons Phil has such a good short game.
