Big Phil teased with number one slot; Golfing Gods love a laugh at Mickelson...


And verily God let it be known "That Phil Mickelson shall ne'er be the Big Kahuna, it's a life as bridesmaid, ne'er the bride" and declared his work done and that he was happy with it...

I couldn't let it go by without mentioning it. If Tiger had got lower than second last week and Big Phil won this,he would have ripped the title of world number one from TW after sitting in his trailblazing backwash for the best part of ten years. Like it was ever going to happen.

It's crazy, it's like the golfing gods just enjoy taking the mickey out of him. They did finally allow him to get the old tag "best player never to win a major" from off his shoulders but to tantalise him so with the prospect of being world No.1 in such blatant fashion; to leave him sitting watching Tiger play last weekend thinking, if he just finishes outside the top two I can take it. It will be mine!

With a Tiger who was not exactly looking bad but wasn't back to his best, surely Phil would get his opportunity. But no, yet again its tough titty Phil, the door rudely slammed shut as he looked on helpless and then just to sink the boot in further, they go and make it windy at Houston and he misses the cut anyway. They know Phil doesn't do wind! Those damn cruel golfing gods.

David Duval even got to be number one for crying out loud, on a few occassions, though to be fair he's been paying that one off with the powers that be ever since. Still it will forever say in any article about Duval, former world numberone. Not best player to never be number one...

He shouldn't have got his hopes up anyhow. Everyone who is anyone knows that Rory McIlroy is the next world number one.
