‘Charles Barkley is one of the funniest people I know’: Phil Mickelson Recalls



Phil Mickelson has wowed golf fans with his on-course shenanigans for quite a long time yet he showed one more expertise during an hour and a half appearance in the CBS corner during the 2020 PGA Championship.

Mickelson joined Jim Nantz and Nick Faldo in the eighteenth opening pinnacle and had fans humming with his sharp mind, fast jokes, and master analysis.

The day in the wake of Thanksgiving, Mickelson will get one more break at it during the 12-opening Turner Sports show of Capital One’s The Match. The fifth portion of the well known series will set Bryson DeChambeau in opposition to Brooks Koepka on the course with Mickelson and old buddy Charles Barkley in the stall close by in depth man Brian Anderson. Amanda Balionis of CBS Sports will be the on-course columnist.

Lefty and Barkley collaborated to dominate The Game in Arizona a year prior.

“Charles is perhaps the most amusing individual I know and he’s one of the fastest mind, articulate, and for him to persist, get over into golf,” Mickelson said. “You know, we’re accomplices and we’ve won previously, so we have a specific validity when we discuss The Match that I think will give some understanding, as well.”


The Match will be on Friday, Nov. 26, the day subsequent to Thanksgiving at Wynn Las Vegas, simply off the strip. Inclusion is set to start at 4 p.m. ET with TNT, TBS, truTV, and HLN all doing a simulcast.

DeChambeau matched with Aaron Rodgers in July to bring down Mickelson and Tom Brady. This will be Koepka’s most memorable Match appearance.

Mickelson said he was set to record a few Q&A meetings with DeChambeau and Keopka just before the Charles Schwab Cup Championship in Phoenix.


“They’ll use as some satisfied for web-based entertainment and that is another thing for me, such as posing the inquiries, not responding to them. That is an alternate dynamic. I’ll get an opportunity to be on course with them, as well, and attempt to get out a portion of the characters, a portion of the perspectives.”

Mickelson has only beneficial comments for the two, who have been web-based entertainment warriors for a significant part of the most recent a while.

“The two players are splendid players, the two players are extraordinary players, yet the two players do it an alternate way. Their manner of thinking is unique. What I might want to do is somewhat let that out and allow that to be seen.


“Clearly Bryson is extremely logical, numbers, math, and a more logical methodology, and Brooks’ methodology is utilizing his ability, expertise, feel, vision, and representation to draw out his best. I’m trusting that I can inspire them to explain that somewhat better since I think it gives extraordinary knowledge into how extraordinary players like those two people think and go all through around, and perhaps toss in a couple of punches to a great extent.”
