Phil Wearing His Green Jacket At Krispy Kreme
How Do You Celebrate a Masters Win? If You're Phil Mickelson, You Celebrate By Going To Krispy Kreme Wearing Your Green Jacket!
Phil Mickelson received a $1,350,000 payout for his 2010 Masters win. It looks like he spent some of that prize money at a Krispy Kreme Drive-Thru.
A Phil Mickelson Krispy Kreme photo popped up on Twitter, showing Mickelson and his family at the Drive-Thru of the donut chain. The catch: Mickelson was wearing the Green Jacket he won at the 2010 Masters.
You would think he might be more delicate with what is the most coveted prize in golf, but Mickelson seemed confident that he wouldn't spill any coffee or donut filling on his green jacket. Even if he did ruin his Green Jacket, he's got two more at home.
The image of Phil Mickelson at a Krispy Kreme will no doubt endear him even more to golf fans. Mickelson's image has gotten a major boost from his Masters 2010 win. Several stories have been written praising Mickelson for being a down-to-earth family man, a pleasant contrast to embattled golf star Tiger Woods.
"Now Phil Mickelson reminds all the people who think golf doesn't matter when Tiger Woods isn't winning that there can actually be a better story, even at this Masters, than Woods. And sometimes the story is still one of the best and oldest in sports: Good guy wins." -nydailynews.com
Mickelson's good guy had taken a hit due to persistent rumors that he had illegitimate child and wife Amy Mickelson had an affair with Michael Jordan. Those sensational Phil Mickelson rumors appear to be false.
The truth about Mickelson may be something much more mundane. He could just an average family man who likes to eat Krispy Kreme donuts in his mini-van with his family.
