Can Johnny Drama lick Phil Mickelson on the links?

Can’t wait until September for the return of “Entourage”?

Newsday has a juicy little tidbit about the upcoming season: golfer Phil Mickelson will be guest starring. This they plucked out of an HBO press release.

Normally I wouldn’t find an “Entourage” cameo all that noteworthy, but consider: Kevin Dillon, aka Johnny Drama, is longtime golf nut, with a 7.3 handicap, according to Golf Digest (second only to Bill Murray’s 7.2 as the best in the LoHud region). Dillon’s dad, Paul, is also coach of the Fordham golf team. And the family belongs to Winged Food in Mamaroneck, where Mickelson had his infamous U.S. Open meltdown.

So, will these two do battle on the links? Considering that Drama is also prone to blowing his top, which one is more likely to come apart on the green?

Expect to find out on Sept. 7, when the season 5 debuts.
