Education, Golf, and Space

Mickelson uses his inner spaceman to promote math, science education, USA Today

"Phil Mickelson, the No. 2-ranked golfer in the world, came to the capital to tell Congress that America is in trouble; its schools aren't producing enough math and science graduates to keep up with the world. The National Science Foundation estimates that 80% of the jobs in the next decade will require some form of math and science skills. "Everybody knows Phil as a golfer," Amy said. "But I think there's an astronaut trapped inside his body." Mickelson loves to talk about space exploration, but he stuck to golf to emphasize to a group of students, all members of local First Tee Chapters, how math and science is used in life."
