Sticks, Stones and Bones

I WAS REMINDED OF THAT SCHOOLYARD saying the last couple of days:
“Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.”
Phil Mickelson has sticks and “Bones” (caddie Jim Mackay), who he calls a class act. It’s Tiger’s sticks that hurt far more golfers than anything his caddie could say.
For those who missed the story earlier in the week, Tiger's caddie, Steve Williams, said of Phil Mickelson, “I think he's a prick.” Woods addressed the situation a second time, commenting in his Wednesday press conference, "Yeah, what ended up happening is I communicated with Phil, and we have discussed it. I talked to Stevie about it, and he feels bad, what happened. It's something that none of us really wanted to have happen, but it's over and done with and we put it to bed."
