Woods, Mickelson Register to Compete in U.S. Open at Brookline
Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have registered to play in this year’s U.S. Open at Brookline Country Club in Massachusetts.
The fact that they registered does not mean they are definitely going to play, but it certainly means it is on their radar.
It is also unclear when the registration was filed as the portal opened on February 23.
Regarding Tiger, one would have to believe that the registration came recently as his playing status of any type of golf was relatively unclear until the last two weeks or so.
Following his final round at The Masters this past weekend, Woods said that he was definitely playing the British Open at St. Andrews and was going to try for next month’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills.
He did not mention anything about the U.S. Open.
For Mickelson, assuming he doesn’t play in the PGA Championship or any other tournaments beforehand, this would his first golf activity of any kind since his recent fall from grace.
His fall from grace came after he appeared to be siding with the Saudi-backed golf league over the PGA Tour, and has trashed the Tour numerous times over the last two months.
Mickelson has lost every single one of his sponsors, including Callaway.
Mickelson has never won the U.S. Open and has six second place finishes.
He needs the U.S. Open to complete the career grand slam.
