Tiger Woods remains head and shoulder above his peers but if swing coach Butch Harmon is to be believed, Phil Mickelson will overtake Woods in a couple of years. Harmon, who has been Woods’ swing coach at some point of time, said his new client Mickelson has the zest and zeal to work hard and better Woods. Harmon said Tiger’s got a big lead as No. 1 in the world so it’ll take a couple of years but I think he can and I think he will actually. Incidentally, the 63-year-old coach used to criticize Mickelson for his obsession with drives. Mickelson, meanwhile, had to withdraw from the final PGA Tour event before the US Open to get his injured wrist treated and the southpaw is expected to tee off at Oakmont next week. The injury forced the three-time major champion to pull out from the Memorial last week after playing 11 holes but was immensely relieved to know that it was just an inflammation. He said … the good news is there is no break or fracture. I have inflammation that can be relieved, and I’m looking forward to playing the Open at 100 percent physically.
