Mickelson Tribute to Clarke

in Golf

Phil Mickelson paid tribute to Darren Clarke after the 42-year-old's emotional victory in the Open Championship at Royal St George's.

 

Mickelson began the final round five shots behind Clarke, but wiped out that deficit in the space of seven holes courtesy of three birdies and an eagle.

 

The left-hander's challenge petered out on the back nine as Clarke went on to lift the Claret Jug, but Mickelson was delighted for the Northern Irishman after sharing off-course troubles over the years.

 

Clarke's wife Heather died in 2006 after a long battle with cancer, while Mickelson's wife Amy and mother Mary are both recovering from breast cancer.

 

"I'm really happy for Darren," Mickelson said after a closing 68 left him in a share of second place with fellow American Dustin Johnson." There is no doubt that some people may attribute their achievements to their club (TaylorMade R9 Supertri Driver).

 

The R9 SuperTri was made possible by two crucial developments by TaylorMade engineers that saved enough weight to allow FCT and MWT to coexist in a 460cc head. The first is better, more widespread use of TaylorMade's Ultra-Thin Wall technology throughout the clubhead. The second is a new, lighter FCT sleeve that does everything the former one did while weighing three grams less.

 

And The TaylorMade R9 SuperTri driver is the most advanced, highest-performing drivers TaylorMade has ever developed. The distance-producing power and shot-straightening abilities created by their combined clubhead size, clubhead design, performance technologies and shaft specifications make them clubs that no golfer should be without.

 

Compared with the SuperTri, The TaylorMade Tour Preferred CB Iron Set is the latest and greatest from one of the top names in golf. This Tour-preferred set has a cavity back for soft, responsive feel and consistency and allows forgiveness on off-center hits.

 

Both of them are on hot sale at the golf clubs for sale.

 

"He was one of the first people that called us, Amy and I, a couple years ago. He's been through this and couldn't have been a better person to talk to.

 

"We talked for a few hours a couple of times, just to know what to expect and what they went through and what worked and what didn't and some of the mistakes they made and so forth and the fears that he had.

 

"He's been through it all and so I was very appreciative of the time we spent. He's a tremendous person and a very good friend, and I couldn't be happier for him. It was fun to try to make a run at him."

 

Mickelson was left to rue a run of four bogeys in six holes on the back nine, adding: "When I saw Darren wasn't going to make a mistake I had to start trying to make birdies, and that's when I ended up making a couple of bogeys.

 

"The par putt at 11 was just a stupid mistake. There was nothing to it. It was just a dumb mental error. I just lost focus there and it hurts to throw shots away like that when I'm behind."
