"What sets us apart is that we offer our guests a fun, welcoming atmosphere inside our stores", said President and CEO, Dick Sullivan, PGA TOUR Superstore. "We don't know what Phil is going to do". He's still very competitive on the regular tour and has goals he wants to accomplish.

"He knows how bad I want to be on the team, but I don't want to be a pick".

Looking healthy and feeling confident, Mickelson has come up with a theme for the year: "Mojo Rising".

When life and career afford you such a privilege, what is there to complain about?

"We felt we needed to ratchet up the deterrence", Dennis said.

"It's seen as bad etiquette, it's seen as a distraction, and we're targeting those individual moments to help their fellow competitors and assist our media partners with presentation".
