Our man Phil Mickelson has taken a drastic measure to help improve his play, which has been down lately. He’s been fasting, according to an ESPN article published this morning.
Mickelson Loses 15 Pounds by Fasting
The fast was for six full days, and he lost a whopping 15 pounds during this fast. He had been playing poorly since winning the AT & T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am earlier in 2019, and has missed cuts in four of his last six entries, which is highly uncharacteristic for the golf legend.
Here’s a photo screen shot of a video he uploaded to his Twitter channel where he talked about all of it.
“The last 10 days I’ve done what I call a hard reset to change and try and make things better,” said Mickelson in a video he posted on Twitter.
The 49 year old golfer dropped the extra weight by drinking exclusively water and a special coffee blend, and also doing a retreat.
Here’s to hoping the fast works, and the good old Lefty is back and better than ever in his next events. Phil, we’re rooting for you!
