Such a little prick. Keeps talking garbage to Horschell just trying to get in his head. He is probably the least liked guy among peers with exception of maybe Phil

I watch golf pretty often and follow it pretty well. Phil is disliked by his peers? I thought people really liked him and looked forward to playing with him. At least that's what the golf people put out there.

Phil is fake. Ask anyone who has played on tour. Although I hear he has gotten better. Problem is he never plays with "Friends" even in practice rounds he wants to play for 10's of thousands of dollars

Phil's biggest fans are the dealers at the Bellagio.  Dude is one of the most infamous celebrity gamblers in Vegas.  I'm guessing his arthritis isn't from bouncing his approach on 18 off the hospitality tent, but from rolling the dice with 10 G's on the hard 8 on the craps table for 9 hours straight.

He is a Grade A DB but I like his chances this week.
Medium play at +3500

Phil is not a good guy you say?  I only know these guys from TV, and that is disapointing news, if it is all a facade.  Seems like Woods would be a jerk, Ernie, Vijay, Sergio, all look like they would be above any communication with the peasants. 

My brother waited on Graeme McDowell once, and enjoyed talking with him for a few minutes, funny how something meaningless makes me like the guy.

I know Phil through a mutual friend. Maybe had 3 or 4 conversations with him over the last 10 years. Guy definitely is a sports nut. He seemed friendly enough and so until I see proof otherwise, I'll assume he's a good guy. I've NEVER heard that he's had a bad rep amongst his peers.

A buddy of mine is a golf writer, and he played a round with Graeme one day.  He said that Graeme couldn't have been nicer, and more down to earth.   Talked to everybody, and had beers after the round.  Just a genuinely good guy.

Phil is a top-notch dbag, no doubt.  I've had first-hand experience and the good-ole boy facade is what it is: a facade to get people to like him and drive ticket sales.  Before I ever met him, I actually rooted for him because my college roommate showed me the over-the-head flop-shot and I thought it was so awesome.  But as I got into work and business and sponsorship stuff with local stuff (Shell Open), I saw how jaded he became, especially after winning a couple of Masters.  I no longer root for him..

I don't give a darn about the bullshit.  Need DA Points to win me money.

 The biggest dirt ball is DJ Trahan .  The fool stuffed his caddy at the PubLinks when he won.  Volunteer caddy didn't even get $20.
