Phil checking his trades.....erm....facebook!

Phil Mickelson likes the odd punt or two but it's debatable as to whether he'll be backing himself after spending two days practicing at Oakmont.  He has played in two previous US Opens at the venue and they didn't go well.

Here's what he told reporters.

“I really think it is the hardest golf course we've ever played. A lot of golf courses, when it challenges you tee to green the way Oakmont does, it usually has a little bit of a reprieve on the greens, and you really don't at Oakmont.”

“The reason why I'm optimistic about Oakmont is that it doesn't require me to hit a lot of drivers.  It requires me to get the ball in play off the tee, but when I'm not hitting drivers, if I'm hitting 3-woods, hybrids, I feel confident I'm able to do that a fairly high percentage of the time.”
