Happy Memorial Day from the Dan Patrick Show

Phil Mickelson joined the show to talk about winning the British Open and .

“It was one of the most emotional days and weeks for us,” Mickelson said of winning the tournament. “It was the biggest accomplishment of my career because it was a tournament and a style of play I didn’t grow up with.”

Mickelson said that losing the U.S. Open was very tough on him, but he was able to clear his head. “We had a trip up to Montana and that really helped,” Mickelson said. Mickelson how he adjusted his game to the British Open. “Not carrying a driver and taking the temptation to hit a driver out of my head, retrained my thought process. Priority No. 1 was getting the ball on the fairway,” Mickelson said.

Mickelson talked about the moment he won and how special it was to have so many important people there. “It was fulfilling a dream,” Mickelson said.

Dan also asked why he started winning Majors so late in his career. “I don’t have a great answer for you other than I finally shot the lowest score,” Mickelson said. “I’ve started to play some of the best golf in my life.” Mickelson noted working with Dave Pelz before the 2003 Masters got him on the right track.

Mickelson also said that having arthritis forced him to change his diet and get in better shape.

Dan asked Mickelson about his San Diego Chargers. “No, I’m optimistic,” Mickelson said. “Mike McCoy’s our new coach. What I’m excited about is he took Tim Tebow and went to the playoffs. The next year he built an offense around Peyton Manning and went to the playoffs. I’m hopeful he can take our personel and do the same thing.
