Phil Mickelson, meet Charles “I’m not a role model” Barkley. With high-spinning, square-grooved clubs recently ruled illegal, Phil went back-door and just started playing with a 20-year-old, square-grooved club protected by a 1990 lawsuit. When asked about it, Phil says, “It’s a terrible rule ... (the) loophole is nuts. But it’s not up to me to interpret the spirit of the rule.” Actually, Phil, it certainly should be, for golfers revere and self-enforce their rules better than any other athletes. I’m sure Tiger Woods would never do such a thing! Well, skip that thought...Maybe Phil can start hanging out with Tiger and Charles? Brad Kearns, Auburn
