Mickelson Registers for PGA Championship, U.S. Open & LIV Golf Invitational
It looks like there is a chance that we will see Phil Mickelson on the golf course pretty soon.
Mickelson has officially registered for the PGA Championship at Southern Hills, the U.S. Open at Brookline and the first event of the new Saudi-backed golf league – the LIV Invitational.
“Our client Phil Mickelson is officially registered to play in the PGA Championship, as well as, the U.S. Open. We have alas filed a request on his behalf for a release to play in the first LIV Golf Invitational in London, June 9-11. This request complies with the deadline of April 25 set forth by the PGA Tour to compete in a conflicting tour event,” Mickelson agent Steve Loy wrote in a statement released to the media on Monday.
The statement adds, “Phil currently has no concrete plans on when and where he will play. Any actions taken are in no way a reflection of a final decision made, but rather to keep all options open.”
For Mickelson, any one of these events would be his first golf activity 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.
