The PGA Tour is at the Memorial Tournament this weekend. The event is also known as Jack Nicklaus’ tournament. One of the more popular player on tour, Phil Mickelson, withdrew from the tournament after the first round on Thursday. He cited ‘mental fatigue’ as his reason.
During the broadcast of the event on CBS, Nicklaus was asked about Mickelson’s withdrawal. He said, “I think I’ll stay out of it.”
Translation – Phil atop Jack's s*** list. RT @JPosnanski: Jack Nicklaus on Phil’s “fatigue” withdrawal: “I think I’ll stay out of it.”

@sdimegUSATgolf Pretty apparent that Nicklaus is peeved at Mickelson for his weak WD from his comment on TV.
