Phil Mickelson and his sister, Tina, a local teaching pro, have gone multimedia in separate ventures.
Phil released his DVD, “Phil Mickelson: Secrets to the Short Game,” in early May, and it debuted at No. 3 on Billboard’s list of sales of recreational sports DVDs.
In an interesting story from after the release, tour veteran Ted Purdy said he bought the two-disc set ($49.99) in the airport because his short game was “just awful.” He watched it, worked on the advice, and two weeks later at the Valero Texas Open he posted his first top-10 since February 2007. Since then, Purdy has been in the 60s in six of eight rounds.
