Alan Shipnuck recounts a unique life marked by spectacular successes, terrible failures, and innumerable controversies in this unvarnished, unedited, and unapproved biography. Mickelson is a complex man, and all of his conflicting desires are on exhibit in these minutes: He’s a smart-ass who amassed a fortune by being the consummate professional; a devoted husband plagued by scandalous allegations; and a high-stakes gambler who knows the house always wins but can’t bring himself to leave the table.

Mickelson’s career and public image have been characterized by his everlasting rivalry with Tiger Woods. Whereas Woods is robotic and shy, Mickelson is personable and flamboyant, an incorrigible showman whom many fans adore and others despise because to his large personality. During their early Tour years together, Mickelson lacked Tiger’s laser concentration and discipline, prompting Tida Woods to refer to her son’s competition as “the fat boy,” among other insults. Despite Tiger’s career being derailed by controversy, addiction, and a damaged body, Phil continues to sail on, remaining relevant on the golf course and in the marketplace.

PROS
  • Oldest player in history to win a major championship.
  • Captures a singular life defined by thrilling victories, crushing defeats.
  • Liveliest golf book in years full of heart, humor, and unexpected turns.

Phil is the ideal combination of subject and author. Shipnuck has long been regarded as the most fearless writer on the golf beat, and he delivers numerous revelations, ranging from the true extent of Mickelson’s massive gambling losses to the inside story of the acrimonious breakup between Phil and his longtime caddie, Jim “Bones” Mackay, to the secretive backstory of the Saudi golf league that Mickelson championed to use as leverage against the PGA Tour. Phil, on the other hand, recognizes Mickelson’s random acts of kindness and generosity of spirit, to which both friends and strangers may attest.
