Phil Mickelson takes ANOTHER jab at former tour pro: "I’m done taking his s***!"

Phil Mickelson isn't done taking shots at Golf Channel and NBC analyst Brandel Chamblee.

Chamblee, also a former PGA Tour player, has been clear since its inception that he's not a fan of LIV Golf.

Last week during the final round coverage of the PGA Championship, this resulted in an awkward on-air moment between he and Brad Faxon as the two discussed Brooks Koepka's potential role in the fall's Ryder Cup

Shortly after, in an interview with Golfweek's Adam Schupak, Claude Harmon III ripped into the Golf Channel host.

Harmon, Koepka's swing coach, accused Chamblee of being a "paid actor" for Golf Channel and NBC, among other comments.

Chamblee subsequently released a lengthy Twitter post responding to Harmon's comments, and Mickelson decided to join in on the conversation. 

After Golfweek posted an article detailing Chamblee's response on Twitter, Mickelson replied, saying "poor Brandel" before adding:

"He can rip apart me and countless others but as soon as someone shows his ignorance he can’t handle it. He’s softer now than he was as a player."

Chamblee caught wind of this Tweet by Mickelson, and replied to an account's screenshot of Lefty's comment:

"Phil is welcome to come on the Live From set at the US Open to discuss the merits of playing for scary MFers, as he called them, and the Billy Walters book that comes out August 22… but my guess he’s too soft to come on and debate."

That's when Mickelson revealed that he could not see what Chamblee had said, showing that he's been blocked

A day later, Golf Magazine posted their own article detailing Mickelson and Chamblee's back-and-forth on Twitter.

Once again, Mickelson added a reply to the tweet:

"Brandel sits on his golf channel set tearing everyone apart with no one challenging him. I’m done taking his s*** quietly. I know it’s stooping to his low level but the 37th personal attack is the last one without responding. Maybe Eamon lynch can come to his defense again."

Mickelson has been doing all this while also playing in this week's LIV Golf Washington event in D.C. 

He was 43rd in the 48-player field after two rounds.
