Why was Phil Mickelson smiling? He just blew the Masters!

I’m glad I’m not the only one who got annoyed when Phil Mickelson blew the Masters Sunday and still managed to put on that goofy grin of his and act as if he’d won.
Phil, you gagged on two easy putts on the back nine and hit the ball in the creek and double-bogeyed No. 12.
Why are you smiling?
You just lost the Masters, you big lug.
“It was fun,” Phil said afterward.
Gregg Doyel of CBSsports.com put it best Sunday when he watched the reaction of Tiger and Phil after both frittered away their chances to win the Green Jacket.
Wrote Doyel:
“Woods didn’t win the Masters on Sunday, and it was obvious. He stalked out of the official scorer’s cabin with red eyes and a red ass, refused to look at CBS reporter Bill Macatee until the camera went live, and spit out curt answers to the media before disappearing.
