Mickelson misses cut, daughter recovering from health scare.

Phil Mickelson’s ten year old daughter Sophia fainted and suffered a small seizure while at school last Friday morning, while Phil was playing in the Humana Challenge in La Quinta. Poor Sophia had to spent Friday to Monday at Children’s Hospital in San Diego, then had to return on the Thursday for medical tests while her dad was struggling to a 5-over-par 77 on the South Course during the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Amy Mickelson praised her daughters courage; “It’s been a rough week, but you get through it. She’s been a trouper. She’s held up pretty well.”

She added that she knows her husband was worried about Sophia, but would not use that as an excuse for playing poorly. He wanted to withdraw from the tournament but she insisted she had the situation handled.

“When Phil is working, he had to focus on hitting shots.  That’s  kind of the way I’ve looked at our last few years. I’ve seen it as a positive distraction for him. But does he worry? Yes.”

I guess knowing the all the facts that no one could chastise Phil for his dismal start to the season opener, who would not be worried about their daughters health. Good luck Phil, there are many tournaments, and get well Sophia.

Phil did not mention his daughter’s condition after his round on Thursday, although he did make a cryptic comment when he said, “I just wasn’t able to focus.”

After missing the cut on Friday Phil said; “I don’t feel bad about my game. I really don’t. I just have to take it from the practice tee to the course, and that’s easier said than done sometimes.”

Phil Mickelson finished the second round at 1-over-par for the tournament.
