This week on Golf Smarter Mulligans #186 is from 2011 after Phil Mickelson was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis. We speak with Scott Burg and Jeff Ciolek of the Cleveland Clinic discuss Mickelson’s battle, and that golfers suffering from arthritis are not only encouraged to keep playing, but that this diagnosis doesn’t have to be the end of playing golf. This was a Members Only episode and has never been released publicly before.
