You can't make this stuff up. PGA pro Phil Mickelson withdrew from the Memorial Tournament in Ohio over the weekend, citing "mental fatigue". Really, what pushed him over the edge were cell phones. Mickelson said, and according to ESPN, Bubba Watson and Rickie Fowler backed him up, that cell phones were the issue.

Mickelson reportedly texted the PGA commissioner about the problem. From his cell phone. While on the golf course/Jared Frank, KHQ/SWXRightNow.com. More here. (AP photo)
