CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Things didn't look so good for Phil Mickelson earlier this week when he was forced to withdraw mid-round of Wednesday's pro-am play at the Quail Hollow Championship.

Preparing for his first tournament appearance since winning a third Masters Green Jacket three weeks ago, golf's favorite player -- no longer is it worth debating -- was on the sixth hole when he became ill.

Phil got sick on Wednesday and need IV bags. He is a playing great and is two shots behind the leader. He did this last year at Doral when he suffered from dehydration. This joke he told was pretty funny.

"Mickelson was sick, sick, sick and tournament officials were feeling a little nauseous themselves."

"Mickelson, however, wasn't worried."

"Apparently, he knew a secret."

"Yeah, I'm 2-for-2," he said. "The last two times I've fainted and woken up in a pool of vomit, I've won. Laying there on the floor wondering where I am, a good omen came over me."

"Mickelson insists it's true."

I think it is pretty funny. Your wife is ill, the pressure playing golf, you pass out and vomit but make a joke about it, come back and play great. Phil is priceless and a class act.

I thought the joke was funny. Sounds like food poisoning. Too make a joke about it was pretty awesome.

Tiger disgraced golf and Phil almost singlehandedly is dragging it out of the sewer. He gives people something to admire about golf.
