The information is coming a bit late but I have only just been informed that Phil Mickelson has been nominated for the
2009 ESPY Awards in the categorie “Best Male Golfer”. Phil will be up against Tiger Woods (nominated for his epic triumph in the 2008 US Open) and Padraig Harrington (who arguably had a career season in 2008 with victories at the British Open and the PGA Championship).
Just in case you already forgot about Phil’s 2008 campaign, here are the results of this 2008 season with two victories at the Northern Trust Open and the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
The 17th annual ESPY Awards gather top celebrities from sports and entertainment to commemorate the past year in sports by recognizing major sports achievements in 37 different categories. The award ceremony will by hosted by Samuel L. Jackson and televised Sunday, July 19th.
The deadline for voting is July 11th at midnight - so hurry up and cast your vote on www.espys.tv!
