Mickelson takes aim at commentator Chamblee


Phil Mickelson has laid into controversial commentator Brandel Chamblee, saying they “don't see eye to eye on anything".

The Golf Channel analyst and Mickelson do have history, with Chamblee lambasting Lefty for his negative comments about Tom Watson following the 2014 Ryder Cup, and later saying he doesn’t deserve to be a captain in the event.

Mickelson was talking to GOLF for their August issue.

"I just like people who build up the game. I view this as we're all in the game of golf together. We all want to grow the game. We all want to make it better, he said.

“I feel like he's made his commentating career on denigrating others. And I don't care for that. I like people who help build the sport up and promote it for what it is, rather than tearing down and ridiculing others."
