The biggest question surrounding Phil Mickelson is which win was bigger for his career "2004 Masters or 2013 British Open?" This is a difficult question to answer because the 2004 victory "finally took the monkey off Phil's back." Mickelson's 2004 victory also helped him believe that he could win another major somewhere down the road. At this point in his career Mickelson might be considered "the most complete player in the game" & is just one month removed from a 2nd place finish at the U.S. Open. Mickelson has never been ranked number one in the world/won a player of the year award, however this could change by the time 2013 comes to a close. Tiger Woods struggles continue to be an ongoing theme & he really doesn't look anything like a guy that has already won fourteen majors.

Phil Mickelson's win during yesterday's British Open wasn't entirely shocking; after all he had won the Scottish Open during the previous week. The bottom line is that Mickelson played brilliantly & his birdies on the 17/18th holes pretty much sealed his fate. The RBC Canadian Open is the third oldest open championship behind only the US & British Open. This tournament has been running since 1904 & is filled with many historical moments (Arnold Palmer's first professional win, Byron Nelson's 11 straight victories in 1945, Lee Trivino winning the Triple Crown) The RBC Canadian Open is a spectacular tournament that should be cherished/embraced by all Canadians.
8:15 Chris Schultz – CFL/NFL Analyst
The Saskatchewan Roughriders are off to a 4-0 start & have quickly established themselves as one of the elite teams in the CFL (with BC/Calgary close behind) The Montreal Alouettes remain a wild card in the Eastern Conference (will Anthony Calvillo ever adapt to the offense?) The Toronto Argonauts find themselves battling a trio of injuries with (Carter, Kackert, Ray) all on the sidelines. The Hamilton Tiger Cats have some issues & it's obvious that all of the players are not on the same page (see Kent Austin's post game comments after last night's loss) & the Edmonton Eskimos remain a big unknown. If Argos starting quarterback Ricky Ray is out of the lineup for any length of time Zach Collaros could be the one who fills his shoes.
