Phil has registered for the 2022 PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club. As a result, he will probably make his comeback to competitive golf and will defend his title at the major championship event.
Shipnuck is the same author who revealed the 45-time PGA Tour winner’s comments about the Saudi Golf League and the PGA Tour. Recently, Alan recently wrote an excerpt about Mickelson’s gambling losses, the Saudi fallout, and his media manipulation.
Alan wrote, “It is important to note that Mickelson never opens his mouth without an agenda. He has spent his career alternately charming, cajoling, manipulating, and bullying reporters.”
Alan added, “During a period when there was tremendous scrutiny about Mickelson’s gambling, Hawkins was alone in the locker room at the Tour Championship with Phil, who pulled out his phone and began placing bets on early-season college basketball games.”
Rumor also has it that Phil is set to receive $30 million upfront. At the same time, he has to play all eight events on the new tour or pay back the amount with some penalty. Apart from Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Kevin Na have also asked for a similar release.
