Phil Mickelson caused controversy this week as he chose to deliberately hit a moving ball at the US Open. The video above shows this controversial act and the video below shows Mickelson trying to defend his actions:
Deviance? Gamesmanship? A player taking advantage of the rules or completely disrespecting the sport and the occasion? Lots of discussion to be had for this one!
Each week we post ‘Starter activities’ for pupils to discuss and debate during lessons. The content will always link to GCSE and A Level Physical Education courses.
The most recent Starter activities can be found on The PE Classroom Home Page. A list of all of the starters can also be found below. Also check out our GIFs For Learning page which acts as a great starter/recap tool.
