Cameron Tringale used to play on the PGA Tour until 2022. But last year, he defected to LIV Golf, and since then, he has been playing as a member of Phil Mickelson’s team, HyFlyers GC. 

Besides, the golfer has been in excellent form recently. If one takes a look at his performances, he has had five top-ten finishes. Recently, in LIV Golf Jeddah, which took place at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club, he finished T9. He appears in good form ahead of the Miami event. 

A similar thought crossed Mickelson’s mind. The six-time major winner said, “Camo’s got a lot of ammo in his game. I expect him to come out shooting on Friday, and I think that’s going to make for a really exciting match”.

The captain’s words reveal that he has high expectations from Tringale but only time will tell how he tees up in Miami. Apart from this, let’s take a look at the format of the game.
