Way To Go, Lefty.

U.S. Masters champion Phil Mickelson plans to donate his winnings from this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans to the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund.
Playing his first tournament since his two-shot victory at Augusta National three weeks ago, Mickelson has already contributed $250,000 to the fund.
"This year I want to designate this tournament as the tournament that we give whatever I make to the relief fund," the 35-year-old American told a teleconference on Wednesday.
"And we want to do that for the next five or 10 years, as long as it takes. No one person can do it on his own."
Here's the whole thing.

I've never been a huge Mickelson fan, unlike many casual golf fans. I'm very impressed with him as a golfer, though. He went from being a guy who couldn't win the big one, and seemed to lack the fire it took to do so, to completely turning around his reputation. He's been incredible since finally getting the monkey off his back.

I don't know what kind of person Phil is, and really we never know what celebrities are like when the cameras aren't rolling. But maybe we're beginning to learn more about him. What a first-class thing to do. Way to go, indeed.

Here's hoping we see more of this. I've been especially challenged lately to share with others that with which God has entrusted me.
