Shove it

Phil Mickelson is now offiically sick and tired of questions about his monumental meltdown at the U.S. Open.

After his first round 69 at the British Open this morning, Mickelson sat down for a quick chat with Jim Huber from TNT. Soon enough, of course, the conversation turned to you-know-what and whether it might haunt him this week as his chased his first Claret Jug. Mickelson, who is as savvy as it comes in media relations, forced a smile and said something like, "Well, I'm not going to let one hole affect how to do in majors."

But what was obvious and undeniable as Mickelson spoke through gritted teeth was that he wanted to lunge across the chair, yank that microphone out of Huber's hand, and shove it down his ever-loving throat.
