Journalists Tweet In Amazement At Mickelson Comments In US Press Conference
By Mark Farrelly Updated

When it came to drama, this year's Ryder Cup has had more off the course than on it, with Phil Mickelson going on a one man finger-pointing mission during the US team's press conference this Sunday evening.

Mickelson wasted no time in hitting out at US captain Tom Watson, prompting one of the most tense golf pressers in a long long time. Speaking about their defeat, big Phil said 'We had a great formula in 2008, I don't know why we strayed from it,' sparing no ammo on his captain Watson, sitting just a few feet away.

He continued to wax lyrical about the 08 captain Paul Azinger, saying 'he got everyone invested.'


His comments sparked plenty of reaction among the media in attendance; not least Newstalk's Joe Molloy and Nathan Murphy.

Others were equally shocked.

While Mickelson also denied he'd be running for the captaincy in 2016, the cynic in me thinks his comments were not just sour grapes over being dropped but are the beginning of a move for such a bid. Watch this space.
