Maybe you were taught from an early age that there's no such thing as a stupid question. And, heck, that's probably true for children. 
However, as we grow older, we realize there actually is such a thing as a stupid question.
During Wednesday's Pro-Am at Bay Hill, Phil Mickelson relayed a story to Golf Channel's Steve Sands about a particular question he received from no less than MasterCard Vice-President CoBrand Business Development and Strategy, Bob Glowasky. MasterCard sponsors the Arnold Palmer Invitational. 
Glowasky -- evidently trying to make conversation with Mickelson as the two walked up the first fairway -- simply asked Lefty if he was looking forward to Augusta.
Much like the MasterCard commercials, Mickelson's reaction and response were... well... priceless!

Give me a break!
I think he was being funny and human. Even when everyone was complaining about the conditions at the British Open...Phil was "whining again".
I love watching great golf whether it is Tiger, Phil, Graham, does not matter.


You guys are probably Woods fans. Talk about throwing up, I want to throw up every time I see him. I was at the Pro-Am on Wednesday and Woods, along with his police escort, was about the only pro that didn't stop and give autographs. He makes me sick and now he's leading. Sometime I think the whole thing is rigged.


Yep...Phil is looking forward to Augusta...and I am looking forward to Phil CHOKING like he normally does. What do you folks think about that commercial with Phil's parents...I feel like throwing up when i see it.


Well Phil your true colors show thru, please excuse your playing partner for not being so "all knowing " as you. It must be hard to be as great as you are!!!! gET A LIFE pHIL THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU......SORRY TO BURST YOUR BUBBLE ON THAT DUMB-ASS!
