Tim Mickelson caddied for his brother Phil during his record-breaking PGA Championship victory on Sunday, with which Mickelson became the oldest major winner in golf history.
And while Tim was the only person who had direct contact with Mickelson on the course, their mom was trying to send her own piece of advice to “Philip” from afar.
“Text Philip and tell him just to par in,” Mary Mickelson texted to his sister Tina, she revealed on Twitter. “Don’t hit bombs or activate calves. Just par. They will have to catch him. He won’t listen to his mother so you text him. Hurry.”
It’s unclear whether Mary’s message made it through — Tina did say she would text Tim because “he’s the only one Phil is listening to today” — but between Phil, Tim, Mary and Tina, the Mickelsons got over the line and into the history books.
