Paige Spiranac was shocked at Phil Mickelson’s walkout.

Mickelson has a great history at the prestigious tournament.

He has won the Masters title three times, with his last victory at Augusta National coming in 2010. But despite this edition marking his 30th Masters appearance, Mickelson will be scornfully looked at after his controversial move to the LIV Golf Series.

Mickelson created an uproar in the golf community last year when he decided to switch to the rebel league.

Unsurprisingly, it cost Mickelson his lifetime PGA Tour membership, alongside a host of fans on the Tour.

But on his return to Augusta National after two years, ‘Lefty’ decided to shy away from the presser, which left Spiranac questioning.

What did Paige say regarding Mickelson's snub?

“I think that it’s interesting that Phil Mickelson declined to do a presser. I feel like that was actually a really great opportunity for him to be Phil and answer questions that, you know, people have been dying to know,” she said on the latest episode of her podcast.

Spiranac had more to add.

Normally never afraid to speak his mind, Mickelson’s decision to not appear for the presser was unlike him,

Spiranac felt. “And he’s usually not one to run away from any type of confrontation. And so I’m really surprised that he didn’t do a presser.”
