After winning the Masters at Augusta National, Phil Mickelson and a fellow golfer took the money out of Tiger Woods’ golf bag. The incident occurred at the 2009 Masters and was captured on video.
Phil Mickelson once mocked Tiger Woods by airing a stack of $100 bills in front of him at a tournament, according to the book “Tiger Woods.” The money was to pay for Tiger taking Phil’s money at the course. Tiger got angry, called him a cheater, and then got on the phone with his caddie about the incident. Mickelson won that round.
When you think of professional golfers, you probably think of them as a rather boring bunch. Fair or not, golf doesn’t have the best public image; it can seem like a stuffy sport for old, rich men. Phil Mickelson knows how to lighten the mood. Lefty has a great talent for pool and has also established himself as a player who is never afraid to put money on the line. And as Tiger Woods can attest, it’s not enough for a PGA veteran to win. Mickelson can also throw some shade at his opponent.
Phil Mickelson is a talented golfer and an experienced player
. COMPARED TO: Phil Mickelson can’t play a friendly game of golf without an extra bet: You play with Phil, you have no choice As anyone who has ever played golf in their spare time can attest, it’s pretty hard to hit a little white ball into a little hole. However, Mickelson is more than capable of doing it and playing to the end. Although Lefty’s best days are behind him, his current form should not detract from an impressive career on the PGA Tour. During his time in the field, Mickelson has built an outstanding resume. He won 44 Tour events and several others, finished first in five different majors and earned a place in the World Golf Hall of Fame. These results were also influenced by the fact that Tiger Woods unfortunately emerged on the golf scene in the late 1990s and dominated the competition. In addition to these successes, however, Mickelson has gained another reputation. Not only is he one of the most respected veterans on the circuit, but he is also well known as a player. Mickelson, the larger-than-life patriarch of contemporary cash games, is a gambler, Shane Ryan wrote in a 2015 article on ESPN. He has won a lot in the past in the Super Bowl and the World Series. In 2001, he was reprimanded by the PGA Tour after winning $500 from Mike Weir in the players’ lounge of the NEC Invitational by predicting that Jim Furyk would hit a bunker.

One day Mickelson took money out of Tiger’s pocket and reminded him of what he had lost. In his ESPN article, Ryan cited another story, again told by Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press. Apparently Woods and Mickelson played a practice round together at the 1998 Nissan Open. They put money on the line, and Lefty came out on top. However, this victory was not enough. Mickelson, who won big, put photocopies of Tiger’s old $100 bills in Woods’ locker, along with a note: I just wanted to let you know that Benji [Benjamin Franklin] and his friends are very happy in their new home, Ryan said.
