Well, here’s Phil Mickelson giving World No. 2 Jon Rahm a chipping lesson! The cynic would say Rahm (1) has more US Opens than Phil (0) but Mickelson is a six-time runner-up in this thing, has the small matter of six majors and is a short-game genius. Rahm heads out today at 4.24pm UK time while Mickelson starts his latest tortured bid to win his national championship at 8.59pm.
It’s going to be slow going out there today and, as we’re on the west coast of America, UK viewers who want to see Sky Sports’ coverage through until 3am may need some help. This press room coffee is pretty neat.
