Mickelson to play in PGA Tour's new 3M Open this summer

Mickelson to play in PGA Tour's new 3M Open this summer After being unsure whether or not he would play in this week's Players Championship, Phil Mickelson has committed to play this summer at the 3M Open, the PGA Tour's new event at TPC Twin Cities.

Philip Alfred Mickelson (born June 16, 1970), nicknamed Lefty, is an American professional golfer. He has won 44 events on the PGA Tour, including five major championships: three Masters titles

Phil Mickelson can relate to Charlie Brown. Having grappled to his first lead over Retief Goosen on the previous hole, Mickelson all of a sudden was trailing again after the double-bogey 5.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida - Phil Mickelson is no stranger to making national news.

For now, he's only part of the college admissions scandal - a.k.a Operation Varsity Blues - because he made himself a subject by issuing a statement about his family's use of Rick Singer's Edge College & Career Network.

For a change, he's gotten out in front of a story and sounds completely innocent. Unfortunately Mickelson has more experience with oddball stories than all other modern professional golfers put together.

Following a 74 in The Players Championship on Thursday afternoon, Mickelson tweeted out a statement about the Singer network seemingly before a connection was revealed.

Watch: Lefty hits righty, out of bounds, underneath fence, because Phil There's little we haven't seen Phil Mickelson do, or at least, attempt to do on a golf course. Thursday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational gave us a new sight, however. Mickelson was 3 under par when he made the turn at Bay Hill Club & Lodge. He decided to hit driver at the par-4 10th, and it cost him. His tee shot went well left and came to rest underneath a boundary fence. The ball was still in play, but because he was not able to move the fence, and didn't want to take a drop, Mickelson decided to stand outside the green, vinyl barrier and play his next shot right-handed.

Phil Mickelson begins another season on the PGA Tour certain of himself if uncertain of his golf future. It’s an obsession with verbal clarity that borders on fetishistic, and it comes out in the carefully measured way he speaks—like an eminent professor in front of students who are bright, yes, but

"Our family along with thousands of others, used Rick Singer's company to guide us through the college admission process," he wrote. "We are shocked by the revelations of these events. Obviously, we were not part of this fraud, our kids would disown us if we ever tried to interfere."

The "obvious" component would be apparent only to those who have seen the Mickelson children at golf tournaments over the years. His oldest daughter attends Brown, while his 17-year-old daughter and 15-year-old son are anything but clones of their parents, always exuding a quiet and respectful independence reflecting the very best of Phil and Amy Mickelson.

Share This Story ! We were holding out hope that it wasn’t, that we had one more week,” Mickelson said. Mickelson and Mackay’s split seems as if it’s the end of an era. Nobody stays together these days — in golf, at least — and it’s unfathomable to imagine anyone else lasting a quarter of a century

No, the Mickelson kids are everything the proud dad noted when he finally emerged to talk to reporters.

"Our kids are, schools are like fighting to get them," Mickelson said in a report filed by GolfChannel.com's Will Gray. "And I say that as a proud dad. Their grades and their outside activities, and their worldly views on things have colleges recruiting them."

Mickelson forcefully denied that his children would need the nefarious and expensive means allegedly used by Singer to get high school students admitted to schools like USC and Yale.

"We're not a part of this. Most every family that has used the company is not a part of it. So that's why I think we're all surprised."

Even more surprising was Mickelson's determination to get out in front of a big story. He's avoided media center interview rooms at all costs since an insider trading case arose in 2016 and after last year's Shinnecock Hills debacle, during which he took days to realize an apology would remedy what was the least-becoming on-course moment of his storied career.
