On Friday, Phil Mickelson, Louis Oosthuizen, and Shane Lowry accidentally created a humorous moment as they strayed towards their putts at the Country Club’s first hole.

Phil Mickelson has only played 2 rounds of golf in the U. S. since January, and it will be a few weeks before he plays again following two poor rounds at the US Open.

Mickelson, who still has to win the U.S. Open to complete his career Grand Slam, shot +11 on Friday, well beyond the anticipated cut line. 

Phil Mickelson Will Not Compete In The US Open

After statements regarding the Saudi kingdom and the PGA Tour were made public in February, Mickelson spent most of the last four months in golf exile, and the rust was evident. Mickelson has 6 runner-up finishes in the US Open, but his competitive days are fading rapidly. He has missed three cuts and has not finished better than T28 since his second-place result at Merion in 2013. He is still a fan favorite, but his odds of being a factor are dwindling with each passing year.

Mickelson will not get a penny for competing in this week’s U.S. Open since he missed the cut, which is part of his gripe against golf’s establishment. Regardless of one’s feelings on Mickelson’s behavior or performance, he has brought a lot of publicity to the event — including this story — and he feels he should not have to do so for free. Mickelson will make his money on the LIV Golf circuit, for the time being, beginning with the event in Portland, Oregon next month. Following that, the LIV Golf initial season will consist of six additional tournaments, four of which will be held in the United States.
