Last year, star golfer Mickelson became the biggest major winner in golf history by winning the PGA Championships. He will not break this record at the moment. Apparently in disagreement with the tour, he did not appear.
American golf star Phil Mickelson will not be defending his PGA title next week. Organizers said they had been informed that the 51-year-old had pulled out. The PGA Championship begins Thursday in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Last year, Mickelson won the championship on Kiawah Island and at the age of 50 became the oldest major winner in golf history. This was the sixth major title of his career.
Mickelson is at odds with the PGA Tour, after he accused her of “unbearable greed” earlier this year. The PGA Tour recently announced that it will ban players from attending the inaugural event of the competing new multi-million dollar LIV Golf Invitational Series in London. The new league is being funded by a consortium from Saudi Arabia.
According to his advisor, Mickelson, like German Martin Kaymer, made an inquiry to participate in the London Championships. Mickelson has not played since attending the Saudi International Championship in February.
