Mickelson Texts Commish During Memorial

Phil Mickelson dropped out of the Memorial after the 1st round claiming mental fatigue.

Now we hear that his group was disturbed by the camera clicks of cell phones. He and his playing partners had to back off several times during the round. Phil text-ed Commissioner Finchem complaining about the gallery and lack of cell phone control by the PGA Tour and tournament officials.

For tournament-host Nicklaus, a helicopter distracted him during the 1960 U.S. Open, which caused him to three putt. Unfortunately for players today it's a combo of relatively inexpensive technology and lack of consideration. The former will be with us forever and unfortunately most likely the latter.
