Jake Trout and the Ball Washers debuted their new song, “Cheers and Boos,” about the par-3 16th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The band members include Peter Jacobsen, along with Willy and Cody Braun of Reckless Kelly and Gary and Micky Braun of Micky and the Motorcars.

The song is available on iTunes and Amazon mp3. All proceeds from downloads go to the Phoenix Open Thunderbird Charities.

Theband  recorded it in Austin, Texas, on January 14th. The song premiered on NBC’s telecast of the third round, but if you missed it, you can watch the music video above or — courtesy of Peter — you can also listen to a version of it here: 16th Tee Short Track.

Thumbs-up! — Creepy or not?

The Waste Management Phoenix Open is dubbed “The Greatest Show on Grass,” among other things, and it sure lived up to its billing on Saturday. Phil Mickelson put on quite the performance for the 179,022 fans (with at least 50-60% that never saw a golf shot) in attendance for the third round, setting a new all-time single-day record at not only the event, but in professional golf history. That’s what happens when you have Phil the Thrill + booze + sunny and 75 degrees.

Phil the Thrill

Lots of Lefty Love from fans on 16 on Friday

One thing’s for sure: Phil Mickelson has a flair for drama. He keeps us on the edge of our seats because you never know what Phil might do (or say in rare cases) next. It’s part of his aura and appeal to fans.

Despite a(nother) disappointing — relatively speaking — finish, Phil still leads by four over Bill Haas. A day after his birdie putt on his last hole to shoot 59 did a near 360 before lipping out, Mickelson, who was eight-under going into 18 in the second round, knocked his 3-wood in the water hazard guarding the left side.
