Phil Mickelson Intends To Swing Even More In 2021

With half the country experiencing cold weather and snow, it’s hard to think about golf season. But thinking about golf season is precisely what Phil Mickelson seems to be doing.

As relayed by Kyle Porter of CBS Sports, Mickelson is thinking about playing in more PGA Tour Champions Events in 2021.

“I feel like I’ve made a few good strides, and I’m excited to start the year and see if I’m able to continue playing at the highest level,” Mickelson said earlier this week. “If I am, I’m going to really try to play more events on the PGA Tour and make a push hopefully for the Ryder Cup.

“But if I don’t play well early on, I’ll start to re-evaluate things and maybe play a few more events on the Champions Tour because what’s fun for me is competing, getting in contention, and trying to win tournaments.”

Mickelson, 50, is exempt into the Masters, PGA Championship and Open Championship for the next decade. So that’s at least three tournaments he’ll catch this year. But you can also expect him to play in every major for which he qualifies.

  1. Always been a Phil fan. He could have probably won 2-5ish more majors and taken one or two from Tiger if he took his health a little more seriously early and played within himself. Granted he was/is way more fun to watch for me that Tiger.

    For me as a kid literally growing up through all the Favre years Mickleson to me will always be the guy I will pull for. I can relate to his play on the golf course with his bad decisions and stupid mental mistakes. Gonna miss him with all these robots these days.
