How awesome would it be to have another man’s caddy drop to his knees and bow to you? Well I wouldn’t know but you could ask Phil Mickelson how it feels. Billy Foster who has caddied for Seve Ballesteros bowed down to Mickelson after that stunning exhibition of shot-making at the Shell Houston Open.
Foster said: “I thought Seve’s short game was the best I’d see. But Phil is unbelievable. I felt like bowing to him after he hit that incredible shot through the trees on to the 13th green at Augusta last year. This time I couldn’t resist.” What a nice gesture towards Phil Mickelson.
Phil Mickelson, the defending masters champion was paired with Westwood in the third round in Houston just like he had been in the final round in Augusta. Mickelson shot a course-record 63 this year while Westwood slumped down to 74. It’s time for Mickelson to head to August since he moved up to number 5 in the world rankings.
