Mickelson Blasts USGA Over Potential Driver Length Roll Back

Phil Mickelson took to twitter to blast the USGA over their potential roll back of the length of the driver. 

The tweet comes even though there has been no official ruling yet by golf’s governing body. 

“Word is USGA is soon rolling back driver length to 46inches.This is PATHETIC.1st it promotes a shorter more violent swing (injury prone,) doesn’t allow for length of arc to create speed,and during our 1st golf boom in 40 years,our amateur gov body keeps trying to make it less fun,” Mickelson wrote in a tweet. 

In response to people commenting on his post, Mickelson revealed that his driver is 47.5 inches. 

Mickelson is playing in the third round of the BMW Championship on Saturday. 

He basically needs to win the tournament to get to East Lake.
