Father Of The Year Phil Mickelson Is Skipping The US Open To Attend His Daughter’s Graduation


When the U.S. Open tees off today, the field will be missing one of the world’s best golfers. Phil Mickelson has chosen not to play golf this weekend but to rather attend his daughter’s private school graduation. Here is what people are saying about the lefty’s decision.


Father of the Year! Years from now no one is going to remember that Phil Mickelson missed the U.S. Open but his daughter will always remember that he was there for her graduation. I can tell you by experience that this means more to a kid than anything else. More than anything I ever received from my parents, the one thing I remember is how my father was always there for me and still is to this day. Someday when I'm a father I can only hope that I can do the same for my kids. This should be the norm and not an anomaly. Thank you Phil Mickelson for setting an example to all the fathers out there on what is truly important. And set aside his own agenda to do this on Father's Day weekend, where he should be the one appreciated and recognized, makes it even better.
