Phil Mickelson’s selection to this year’s U.S. Presidents Cup team came as a surprise and had many people wondering,“What’s Captain Jay Haas thinking?”
After all, Mickelson hasn’t won since the 2013 Open Championship and the 45-year-old star has just four top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour in the past two seasons. He was ranked No. 30 in the Presidents Cup standings when he was picked.
Was Haas just throwing a bone to his fellow captain’s pick for the inaugural Presidents Cup in 1994? Was he throwing a bone to NBC/Golf Channel, which has the unenviable task of trying to get American TV viewers to tune into a sporting event on South Korean time?
