Top-10 Slogans for Phil Mickelson's New 'Phrankenclub'

By: Jay Flemma

Phil Mickelson loves to tinker. First it was two drivers, then it was no driver, then it was no 3-wood, then it was 80-degree wedge (or something like that).

DUCK! Phil has a New Club Again!

Now it's "Phrankenclub," a cross between a driver and 3-wood, which is supposed to hit the ball out of sight but not into the rough or trees. Phil was a pedestrian eight of 14 in fairways hit in the opening round. Let's come up for some slogans for Phil and the marketing folks over at Callaway!

Top 10 Slogans for Phil's Phrankenclub

10. Does this mean Amy is "Bride of Phrankenclub"?

9. Phreakin' club!

8. Because dumb jokes about werewolves and zombies are so last year.

7. Plays lousy, but goes great with those alligator shoes and belt.

6. Oh, but it looks good on YOU, though . . . as Al Czervik said to Judge Smails.

5. Because people would laugh at you if you said you carry a 2-wood.

4. Because Phil just loves half-baked useless contraptions.

3. If you think this is bad, don't ask about the chemistry set Phil had as a kid!

2. It's not really for golf . . . it's for the theatre premiere of the remake of "Abbott and Costello Meet the Monsters."

1. Oh well, at least it beats a three-hour ride on the media bus to Kiawah Island.
