Phil's Personal Record

I know many of you out there don't like Phil Mickelson for various reasons, but Phil has done something that I think deserves everybody's respect.

Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson has been in the Top50 of the OWGR for 25 straight years... and he's done it during the "dominant Tiger" era.

Will Gray posted a short piece about it at golfchannel.com if you want to read it. But here's the long and the short of it:
Phil moved to 47th in the OWGR on Nov. 28, 1993, won at Kapalua to start the 1994 season and has been there ever since.
That is nothing short of amazing in these times when players make such huge moves up and down in the rankings, and Phil's done it while managing psoriatic arthritis, which is incurable, and dealing with his wife and his mother's bouts with cancer.

Simply amazing. That's an accomplishment that needs to be recognized, regardless of how you feel about him.
