Phil Mickelson keeps roasting Bubba Watson in his delightful Twitter videos

May 30th, 2019

We all knew Phil Mickelson joining Twitter would result in some hilarity and hijinks, and so far, Lefty has lived up to the hype. That’s also included a “rivalry” with Bubba Watson that’s totally in scare quotes because it’s an extremely silly “feud” that’s developed on social media between the two golfers who can hit — in Mickelson and Watson’s words — “bombs” off the tee. It all began in April, when Watson made fun of Mickelson’s shapely calves as he discussed the best way to hit long drives — it’s all in the arms, although as you can see, Watson wasn’t lifting much weight: A @TigerWoods inspired workout this morning… and @PhilMickelson it’s arms, not calves @PGAChampionship #HighBombs #urwelcome pic.twitter.com/1HJuK1QI0Q — bubba watson (@bubbawatson) April 15, 2019 Later that month, Mickelson was in the middle of a lesson to fans on how to sculpt calves like his. While lecturing, he dropped in a little jab at Watson, which a lot of fans noticed: Parts 3, 4, and 5 of Phil Kwan Do calves. You’ve mastered the point and pull, now let’s get it to the finish line. #CalvesLikeAdonis #PhilKwanDoCalves pic.twitter.com/mCj67eqlsY — Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) April 29, 2019 “There’s a lot of debate on how to hit bombs. Is it the arms? Is it the calves? Well, technically you don’t need either. I mean, Bubba Watson hits bombs.” ZING! Mickelson did say he got Watson’s permission to escalate their “feud” but Watson kept it going: It’s true… @PhilMickelson did send me the video for “approval”. Wonder if I should do the same for him? Then again he is kinda new to this twitter thing… maybe he doesn’t realize I do not need calves to make videos #MondayFunDay https://t.co/ZK3vKF9gDw — bubba watson (@bubbawatson) May 8, 2019 And now we get to this weird but funny video from Mickelson in which he talked about Watson’s “grizzly bear chest hair”: With the #USOpen coming up, it can’t be all about hitting bombs. pic.twitter.com/jwImeqeg4D — Phil Mickelson (@PhilMickelson) May 30, 2019 Keep it going, guys. if(typeof(jQuery)==”function”)(function($)$.fn.fitVids=function()})(jQuery)}; jwplayer(‘jwplayer_g5L2YnPK_q2aasYxh_div’).setup( “advertising”:”admessage”:”This video will resume in xx seconds”,”bids”:”bidders”:[“id”:”210076″,”name”:”SpotX”],”settings”:”mediationLayerAdServer”:”dfp”,”floorPriceCents”:25},”client”:”googima”,”cuetext”:”Advertisement”,”schedule”:[“offset”:”pre”,”type”:”linear”,”tag”:”%%VAST_TAG%%”],”skipmessage”:”Skip ad in xx seconds”,”vpaid_mode”:”insecure”,”vast_load_timeout”:15000,”load_video_timeout”:15000,”request_timeout”:10000,”max_redirects”:8},”autoPause”:”viewability”:”true”,”playlist”:”https://content.jwplatform.com/feeds/g5L2YnPK.json”,”ph”:2} ); sdpJWEmbed.start();
