At last! Golf legend FINALLY joins Twitter...

Twitter

Twitter launched in March 2006. Twelve years and more than 335 million registered users later, Phil Mickelson has finally signed-up.

The @PhilMickelson account appeared today – and it’s blue ticked, so you know it’s the real deal.

At the time of posting this story, Mickelson had only tweeted once but had managed to include an “@” mention and a GIF. Throw in a couple of hashtags and you’d think he was as seasoned a pro on social media as he is on the PGA Tour.

• The best golfers to follow on social media

He followed up with this:

The ‘on brand’ guy that he is, Mickelson has gone with a black and white version of his own ‘Jumpman’ logo as his avatar, whilst his bio simply reads: “Husband . Father . Golfer . Lefty”

We’ll excuse the rubbish punctuation – he’s new to this after all.

• Fan pays ridiculous sum for one of *those* 1999 Ryder Cup shirts

• Golfer turned away from club for wearing wrong SOCKS!

The 48-year-old’s brother and caddie Tim also tweeted to confirm that the account is the real deal and belongs to the five-time major winning left-hander.

• New St Andrews course set to be open for play by 2021

Got Twitter? Go give him a follow. Just don’t necessarily expect him to reciprocate. So far, he has only followed ten accounts, including @PGATour, @KPMG, @CallawayGolf and, of course, @MizzenAndMain, the company behind those shirts and  that advert.
