Reasons Mickelson should have a huge 2010

AP / Chris Carlson
  • He is coming off a four win 2009 in which he ended on a hot note with wins at the Tour Championship and the HSBC World Golf Championship
  • His wife and mother are recovering well from their bouts with cancer
  • He has changed his putting style after working with Dick Stockton
  • No Tiger as of yet
  • He should be the favorite heading into both the Masters and the U.S. Open
  • After almost 20 years on Tour, he has finally begun to use better course management
  • He is bombing it off the tee and has a ridiculous short game, especially with the loophole he is exploiting with the new groove rules
  • No Tiger as of yet (did I mention this?)
  • Johnny Miller said so last year and he is never wrong
Prediction: Phil will win five times this year including the Masters
