Episode 2509: The Second Captains Sports Book Of The Year Show
Welcome to the Second Captains Sports Book Of The Year Show with Malachy Clerkin and Sinead O’Carroll.
Phil by Alan Shipnuck is a biography of Mickelson told from every conceivable angle, good and bad. For the opening chapter, Shipnuck got 50 different people to tell him their favourite Mickelson story. It might be the most enjoyable chapter in any sports book ever. 4/4 pic.twitter.com/baAboxpp2p
