Golf Legend Phil Mickelson Caving Under Vegetarian Pressure?

What a tease golf champion Phil Mickelson is.

Earlier this year, the second-ranked golfer in the world and unabashed red meat enthusiast announced at the PGA Championship that he had embraced a vegetarian lifestyle to treat his psoriatic arthritis. His reason for the change then was simple, “I read a book and just thought maybe it would help. And if it helps my situation, I’m all for it.”

However, it seems that after just four months of the new lifestyle, Mickelson is suffering from cold feet.

At the HSBC Championship in Shanghai this week, when asked if he’s stuck with the no-meat mantra, Mickelson stated, “I’ve been doing it for just over four months and I’m just having second thoughts. I don’t know if it really is going to make a difference or what, so we’ll see, I don’t know.”

When pressed further to see if the temptation to cheat was getting to him, Mickelson replied, “I don’t know. I just — I don’t know. We’ll see. We can talk about it in January, and I’ll have a better idea. See how the holidays go.”

Our opinion? If you can win four major golf championships and a whopping 38 events on the PGA Tour, you can avoid ordering that double double with extra cheese. Stay strong, Lefty.
