I love the way it rewards attacking play and think it suits my game quite well.“Any time I can go directly at pins to try and make birdies and eagles, I think it puts me at an advantage. The other fun thing about skins is how you find yourself rooting for the other guys if you’re not in a position to win the hole.“You’re hoping they can tie with someone else so you can play for that skin on the next hole. With the skins format, you’re always in it until the end.” Tags: JapanPhil Mickelson
