Detroit Lions get thumbs-up from Lefty

ATLANTA – There was plenty of pressure to go around, what with Phil Mickelson trying to erase a deficit and chase down Tiger Woods, of all people, at the mega-rich Tour Championship.

But when the fan yelled out, “Detroit won today,” what did Mickelson do?

“He stopped, looked at the guy and said, ‘Cool,’ ” said Mickelson’s caddie, Jim Mackay.

And that sort of stuff doesn’t take Mickelson out of his zone? He’s able to stay focused on the golf?

Mackay laughed and shook his head. “He’s able to stay focused. Not sure how, but he’s uncanny like that.”

For the record, the Lions did indeed win.
