The Phil Mickelson Fitness Slideshow

BEN POPPER AT MEN’S VOGUE wrote to tell me about their stories on the new, svelte Phil Mickelson. OK, I’m not sure about svelte, but he does look a lot more fit.

“We ran this piece on how Phil Mickelson shed 20 pounds in three months to regain his stride,” said Ben in an email.

Here’s a slideshow that outlines Phil’s eating plan and workout regimen:

Now I know why Lefty was seen carrying his clubs around Torrey Pines before the U.S. Open. Nonetheless, I’m sure caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay still has job security on the weekends.

Somewhere along the way, I think Phil, by his own admission, lost his putting stroke in addition to that roll around the middle. Hopefully, he can find it in time for next week’s PGA Championship at Oakland Hills.
