Phil Mickelson couldn’t resist a playful shot at the lawsuit involving Rory McIlroy and Graeme McDowell. Mickelson is playing in his 10th Ryder Cup, so he’s not afraid of a little banter. He was asked on Wednesday in Gleneagles, Scotland, if it was unfair to suggest the Americans were not as closely knit as Europeans based on success they have in team matches. Lefty replied: “Not only are we able to play together, also don’t litigate against each other, and that’s a real plus, I feel, heading into this week.” McIlroy is suing his former management company. His lawyers have asked for the confidential contracts of McDowell, who was represented by the same company. McIlroy and McDowell have said it has not affected their relationship. Mickelson smiled and said, “Sorry, I couldn’t resist.” – AP
