Phil Mickelson will be inducted into the Golf Hall of Fame next year, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem confirmed on Friday.

The popular 41-year-old Californian is a four-time major champion and a multiple winner on the PGA Tour and has raised millions for charitable causes.

After paying a glowing tribute to Mickelson Finchem said he would be formally inducted into the Hall of Fame ahead of next year’s Players Championship at Sawgrass.

“The image of the players and the image of the game is the strongest thing we have. They are our biggest asset as an organisation.

“Phil has contributed to that in a very positive way over two decades and he is exactly what you like to see in a player.

“If everybody conducted themselves like Phil, week-in and week-out, we would be stronger yet.

Mickelson said “My thanks go to those who voted me into the Hall of Fame. It really is a tremendous honour to be mentioned alongside the greats of the game.”
