When you’re a professional golfer like Phil Mickelson is, you go where the tournaments are…and a tournament isn’t going to wait for you. You kind of base your schedule around them. So when the US Open was set to start on the same day as his daughter’s graduation from high school, it was no contest: Phil’s going to skip the US Open for the first time in 24 years to attend his daughter’s grad.
Wouldn’t have it any other way.
Way to go, Phil. We can all learn from you.
