Before the arrival of LIV Golf, Phil Mickelson was considered one of the most active golfers on Twitter. Though he rarely makes his presence known on the social media app in recent days, the golf world always is aware of his actions on the internet. It was revealed that he blocked golf’s biggest social media influencer Paige Spiranac last month. However, earlier last year, he blocked yet another influencer on Twitter.

In the February of last year, a song named ‘Growing the Game’ was being shared across the golf world. The tune was made by UK-based singer Sam Harrop, who mainly makes music comprising golf parodies.

The song focused on Phil Mickelson’s comments on the Saudi-backed Tour, which was still in talks to be initiated back then. The name of the song, ‘Growing the Game’, indirectly takes a jab at Mickelson’s decision to leave the PGA Tour for pursuing the growth of the game mantra.

Moreover, some of the lyrics from the song also were directed toward other associates of LIV Golf, such as Bryson DeChambeau, Shane Lowry, and even the CEO of Saudi Golf Majed Al Sorour. Though many appreciated the humorous song, the ever-witty Phil wasn’t a fan.

The Hall of Famer loathed the song to the extent that he blocked the singer Sam Harrop on Twitter. The UK-based artist shared the screenshot of Phil blocking him on Twitter. “It was a fun ride”, captioned Harrop. Nonetheless, the singer wasn’t the only content creator blocked by Phil Mickelson in 2022.

Phil stated that he didn’t intend to block her and apologized for the mistake. Nonetheless, the 6-time Major winner blocked Paige Spiranac the very next day on Twitter as well as Instagram. Perhaps, Mickelson may not be fond of golf content creators. Considering his comical humor, Phil could himself give the social media influencer’s lifestyle a shot.
