As he battles Henrik Stenson for the British Open title, Phil Mickelson today revealed a secret that’s made him one of the world’s best golfers: a hard-core training diet of Metamucil and toast.
Mickelson, who enters the back nine 15-under-par at a tough Royal Troon course, told reporters his success is due to practice, mental discipline, and—most importantly—daily doses of his toast and fiber supplement.
“The way a boxer drinks a raw egg to get ready for his big fight, that’s what Metamucil and toast does for me,” said the 46-year-old. “It may sound too insane for some people, but that’s what I have to do if I want to be the best.”
Mickelson also disclosed that his offseason training regimen includes secluding himself in a remote cabin in the mountains where he can do crossword puzzles.
