Do you like talking smack on the golf course?
If so, it doesn't get much better than the smack spewing from Phil Mickelson's mouth after he and Zach Johnson halved their Friday Fourballs match against Adam Scott and Jason Day in the Presidents Cup.
If you'll remember, Mickelson committed a serious golf-ball blunder on the seventh hole, resulting in an unusual penalty that saw the U.S. go from all all square in the match to 2-down in just one hole.
Well, the U.S. bounced back and managed to snag a halve.
For Mickelson, it felt pretty good to come back from that snafu to Scott and arguably the world's hottest player in Day. Just ask him.
"We spotted the Internationals' best team two holes and they still couldn't beat us," Mickelson said. "Just sayin’."
Here's the video of that very quote:
Those are fighting words! Well, by golf standards, anyway. The U.S. will take a one-point lead at 5 1/2-4 1/2 going into the weekend, where you've got to think Scott and Day would love another crack at Lefty.
