I have been to many courses throughout this country. My son was the LIGA Jr Champ a number of years ago. I went to both Opens at Bethpage. What I witnessed at the practice round Wednesday displayed the ultimate spirit of this game and event. After teeing off at 17 (during the practice round), we watched as Mickelson made his way up the fairway, As we started to move out, I noticed he had veered off to the left side of the tee area and was engaged in conversation with a fan. I believe he bent down to hug the fan before heading out to the green. It was then that I saw his target fan - a young person in a wheelchair workig through an obvious physical disability. After Phil moved on, you could see and feel the thrill of this young person having had an encounter with a famous golfer. It was one of my favorite moments spent on a golf course - and probably always will be.
