Phil Mickelson is generally regarded as one of the more polite and soft-spoken people in sports. Despite the fact that he makes around $60 million a year through tournaments and endorsements, Phil comes across as a pretty humble guy. That doesn’t mean he’s immune to getting frustrated with reporters who ask useless questions. During the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill on Thursday, Mickelson was speaking with a reporter from the Golf Channel about being asked dumb questions. He said the most useless question he was ever asked was if he was looking forward to Augusta. Since Phil has had some of the most exciting moments in his career at The Masters, which happens to be the most important golf event of the calendar year, the question can be seen as a waste of time. Clearly that’s exactly how Mickelson viewed it. Video via Game On!
