Phil-ing hungry


NORTON, Mass. – Phil Mickelson proved once again in Thursday’s Deutsche Bank Championship Pro-Am how you never know what you’re going to see when you follow him.

Or what you’re going to get to eat.

Late in the day, with only about 30 folks in the gallery following him out to his 12th hole of the day, Mickelson turned to the crowd and said: “Hey, we’re all a little bit sluggish out here. I think we all need a little pick me up. Follow me.”

Mickelson then darted under the ropes and like the Pied Piper led everyone to the concession stand near the tee box.

With a wide-eyed sophomore girl from the Norton High School Class of 2012 at the register, he stuck three $100 bills in her hands and announced that he was buying hot dogs and hamburgers for everyone. The Class of 2012 working the stand got a $160 tip for their class fund.
