Phil Mickelson drank a $40,000 bottle of wine from the Claret Jug
Phil Mickelson has only sipped the fine stuff from the British Open trophy in the last year since he won at Muirfield.
I think I finally found it, you guys. The ultimate Phil Mickelson story.
Mickelson told The Scotsman he's had a blast holding on to the Claret Jug over the last year.
"I’ve loved having the Jug with me for the last 12 months," he said. "The people who know and love the game get a big kick out of it. They really appreciate what it means to hold such a famous trophy. And drink out of it."
But what do they drink? Beer? Liquor?
"I only let them drink the good stuff of course. There’s been nothing in there that is sub-par. But the best was a 1990 bottle of Romanee Conti wine. It wasn’t on my dime thankfully. It costs about $40,000."
Forty thousand, not a typo.
Of course for Phil that's probably about two weeks worth of Tuesday money games with Rickie Fowler and Co.
