So how did Mickelson fare on his first hole of '09? With a nasty double-bogey that makes even the leftiest of people frown.
Surely Anthony Kim, the rising star on tour wouldn't best Mr. Mickelson, right? Evidently not. Kim, who had to withdraw from the Bob Hope last week because of a shoulder injury, has started out the FBR at bogey-double bogey-birdie-par-double bogey.
That hasn't stopped Kim from having fun, though. Before Kim went out this afternoon, he walked by myself and Jason Gore (who has lost some weight and shot a two-under 69) and slapped Gore on his arse and when Jason looked back to see who it was, Kim jokingly gave him the finger.
Right now, it appears TPC is giving Anthony that same hand gesture.
