Green jacket visit excites doughnut store staff

Masters champion Phil Mickelson, wearing his green jacket Monday, went through the drive-through of the Krispy Kreme doughnut store on Washington Road, about a mile away from the golf course.

Angel Burley knew a golfer was coming to her drive-thru window at Krispy Kreme Doughuts on Washington Road by the pass on his windshield. It wasn't until she saw the green jacket that she realized who it was.

Burley, a worker at the store, said she peered out of the window Monday to find a smiling Phil Mickelson and his daughter.

"When I opened the window I see the green jacket," Burley said. "I said: 'You won yesterday,' and he started smiling and said, 'Yeah.' "

Burley said her boyfriend made her watch the tournament on Sunday so she knew exactly who was ordering at her window. Mickelson placed an order for a dozen each of glazed, chocolate and mixed donuts, she said. Burley said she and her coworkers all snapped photos of the Masters champion before handing over his order.

Greg Carswell, manager for the store, said he snapped the photo of Mickelson in the jacket. He also handed over the order of doughnuts for free to the champ.

"He was humble," Carswell said. "You would think it was just a regular day for him."

Burley said it was no surprise to see golfers at the store. All week, they had been stopping by. On Monday, she said, she suspected another green jacket wearer.

"I thought it was Fuzzy (Zoeller) coming back through," she said.
