Mickelson Commits to 2nd Champions Tour Event
Phil Mickelson is headed back to the Champions Tour.
Mickelson committed to the Dominion Energy Charity Classic at The Country Club in Virginia next week.
It will be his second Champions Tour event after he won his debut appearance back in August.
“We are thrilled that Phil Mickelson, one of the game’s most accomplished and popular players, has committed. His presence will bring another layer of excitement and energy to the tournament, especially for our fans watching around the world on Golf Channel,” said tournament executive director Steve Schoenfeld.
The tournament runs from October 16-18.
It will include players such as Jim Furyk, Ernie Els and Mike Weir.
During his first Champions Tour start, Mickelson tied the scoring record en route to the Charles Schwab Cup Series win at Ozarks National.
He became the 20th player to win his first PGA Tour Champions start.
However, upon returning to the PGA Tour, he did not see the same results.
Mickelson finished in a tie for 44th at the Safeway Open and missed the cut at the U.S. Open at Winged Foot.
