It is pretty clear this course was made for Phil.

Huge driving areas and extreme short game needs.

It's too bad. Could have been the one.

    I really don't know why everybody was saying this course didn't suit his game. It fits his game exactly for the reasons you mentioned. He would have been gold out there. Too bad since we probably won't see another US Open at Erin Hills and if we do, Phil will be long gone.

    I don't really agree, while the fairways are wide, still helps to drive it quite straight, and helps players that are just a little bit off target from time to time.

    Phil isn't a consistent driver that will lose it a touch, he will throw in a few drives 40-50 yards off line in any given round. I don't see him playing controlled golf like he would at the Open because of the 7800 yards. Can't envisage a situation where Mickelson doesn't end up in the fescue at least a few times a round. And nobody is making hay out of that stuff this week, even if he is the master escapist.
