The Golf Blog says: Less than 24 hours after ESPN’s Bob Harig revealed an unflattering account of how Tom Watson conducted himself at the Saturday night U.S. team “bonding” session, Tom Watson issued a full mea culpa for his controversial comments to the team.
He also said he and Phil Mickelson patched their differences: “As for Phil’s comments, I completely understand his reaction in the moment. Earlier this week I had an open and candid conversation with him and it ended with a better understanding of each other’s perspectives. Phil’s heart and intentions for our Team’s success have always been in the right place. Phil is a great player, has great passion and I admire what he’s done for golf.”
Let’s give credit to Tom Watson. His coaching was somewhat abrasive and uninspired, but he owned up to his mistakes.Tweet
