He will need to bury those images when he is on the course at Pinehurst, starting Thursday.  No distractions.  None of those stray thoughts that creep into the mind when you are standing over a four-footer and that are the ruin of many a golfer. Little things can cause you to lose focus.  Little things, like for instance … being the subject of an FBI investigation.

But Mickelson is a pro. So perhaps he can avoid worrying that he might suffer the same fate as the notorious Martha Stewart.

And if he wins, he can tell even Lee Trevino a little something about playing under pressure.
