Do not pair me with Mick­el­son, pleads John­son

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

DUSTIN JOHN­SON says he does not want to part­ner United States team mate Phil Mick­el­son (il­lus­tra­tion) at next week’s Ry­der Cup in Min­ne­sota. Throw­ing diplo­macy out of the win­dow, the long-hit­ting John­son yes­ter­day made clear his thoughts re­gard­ing Mick­el­son, who is a five-times ma­jor cham­pion.

“I think I can part­ner pretty well with pretty much any­one, ex­cept for Phil,” world No. 2 John­son told re­porters on the eve of the Tour Cham­pi­onship at East Lake Golf Club in At­lanta. “Me and Phil don’t part­ner well to­gether,” added John­son, in what amounted to a pub­lic plea to US Ry­der Cup cap­tain Davis Love III. “We play well against each other,” said John­son. “I love Phil and we’re great friends but we have a lot more fun when we’re play­ing against each other than when we’re part­ners.” – Reuters
